Once there lived a king who did not allow anybody to leave the kingdom and any foreigners to enter in his kingdom. There was only one bridge that connected his kingdom with the outer world. A guard who was a sharpshooter was specially assigned for guarding the bridge. According to the orders, anyone moving outside should be killed and anyone coming to his kingdom should be sent back. To take rest, the guard used to sit inside his hut for 5 minutes and return back on the post. The bridge took a minimum of 9 minutes to pass.

Even then, a man was able to escape the kingdom without any kind of harm from the guard.

when the guard was taking rest for 5 min the person escaping from the kingdom runs for 5 min. away from the gate but then he turned around towards the gate at the moment the guard came by, since any person appraoching towards the kingdom must be sent back so the guard asked the person to leave and thus he escaped.

You are trapped into a death trap by the famous jigsaw killer. A screen flashes in front of you and explains you the trap game.

There are 100 pearls kept in a bowl in front of you and an empty bowl. Among the 100 pearls, 50 are white and 50 are black. You can divide them as you like into the two bowls. Once you are done, you will pull a lever, which will turn the room pitch black. The bowls will move and shuffle around. In the dark, you have to pick up one pearl from any bowl. Once you do that, the room will flood with lights again. If the peral you have in your hand is white, you will be allowed to live, but if the pearl you picked is black, the room will be filled with poisonous gas and you will die.
