Princess Puzzle : Solve it
The princes are gathered into a room and seated, facing one another, and are shown 2 black hats and 3 white hats. They are blindfolded, and 1 hat is placed on each of their heads, with the remaining hats hidden in a different room.
The king tells them that the first prince to deduce the color of his hat without removing it or looking at it will marry his daughter. A wrong guess will mean death. The blindfolds are then removed.
You are one of the princes. You see 2 white hats on the other prince's heads. After some time you realize that the other prince's are unable to deduce the color of their hat, or are unwilling to guess. What color is your hat?
Note: You know that your competitors are very intelligent and want nothing more than to marry the princess. You also know that the king is a man of his word, and he has said that the test is a fair test of intelligence and bravery.
Sagar07If color of my hat is black, then one prince lets say "B" will see one white hat and one black hat... And "C" will see one white and one black...
Now, C is unwilling to guess, that means, B will be sure that hat on his head is white in color, because if it was black, then C should have guessed the answer as "white hat on his head" as there were only two black hats....
so, Color of my hat is "WHITE".......

PraveenKumar PurushothamanHey I don't get the question. The princes are taken into a room, blindfolded, placed a hat and asked to guess? Are they removed of their blindfolds or only after guessing are they removed?
The princes are shown 5 hats (3 white and 2 black) before they are blinfolded. then they are blindfolded and a hat is placed over their head...... sagar is right.Praveen-KumarHey I don't get the question.
