On the way to home you need to cross a river. You have a goat, lion and cabbage with you but boat is little, allowing you to take only one of the three things with you. You can’t keep the Goat and the cabbage together (because the Goat would eat it), nor the Goat with the Lion (because the Goat would be eaten).

How shall the you get everything on the other side (without any harm)?

You must have heard of so many river crossing riddles however this one is a bit tricky one. We have a dysfunctional family on one side of the river which includes mom and 2 daughters, dad and 2 sons, a maid and a dog. Like usual, there is a boat that can hold only two persons at a time (dog counts as one person as well). Obviously, the kids can’t operate the boat and we need an adult for that task.

Here comes the difficulties. The maid must remain with the dog so she can control it or it will head up for a violent biting. The dad cannot be left with the daughters without mom and nor can the mother be left alone with the sons without dad.

Can you help them cross the river?
