How come a man was born in 1881 and died in 1883 ,yet he was 90?
A man who was born in 1881,died in 1883 but yet he was 90.How it's possible?
90 what? Weeks?
90 was not weeks.90 was years.
One Saturn year equals 30 Earth years. If he lived three Saturn years, he would be 90 Earth years old.
It is possible that the two years belong to different calendar systems.
In India if a person was born in 1881 AD and died at the end of Saka Varsha 1883, he could be about 84 years old since zero year in Saka corresponds to 78 AD.
Even then it does not match the 90 years give in the puzzle.
That should have been 82 years not 84.
Maybe others should give this a try? I think Ramani sir's response is right.
Consider that the man was born at hospital in room no.1881 ,and died in a room no.1883.So 1881,1883 are just room numbers in a hospital.Infact I too don't know whether this is the correct answer or not.
May be he born in room no. 1881 and after 90 years he may died in room no. 1883
