Mr. Kevin was a travel agent who had booked their trip to the Alps. The husband had bought two tickets going there, but only one ticket home — he knew his wife would die.
Kevin is in a room with two doors. One leads to heaven, the other leads to hell. There are two guards in the room as well: one tells the truth and the other always lies. He doesn’t know who is who; Kevin can ask only 1 question, which question will allow him to figure out which door to go through?
Ask: “What would the other guard say is the correct door?” Then pick the door that they aren’t pointing to.
