LE PUZZLE

 

PLEASE STUDY THIS DIAGRAM CAREFULLY

There are two rooms side by side in a corridor. Room A and Room B.

You are in Room A. You cannot see Room B or what is in it.

Room A has three electric switches on a table - switch 1, switch 2 and 3.

Each switch connects to a light bulb in Room B. But you do not know which switch connects to which light bulb.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to identify which switch connects to which light bulb.

You are only allowed to visit Room B ONCE only. That is the time when you identify which light bulb connects to which switch. I repeat: you go to Room B and say, "this lamp is switch 1, this 2 and this 3".

Once you leave Room A you cannot go back there - you have to go to Room B to identify each light bulb is connected to which switch.

How do you do it?

PLEASE DO NOT READ THE ANSWER BELOW ... NOT YET 

HERE ARE SOME CARTOONS TO ENTERTAIN YOU TILL YOU FIND THE ANSWER

OK ... If you give up ... here is the answer:

First you switch ON switch No. 1 for about ten minutes or so.

Then you switch No 1 OFF - and switch No. 2 ON.

Go to Room B.

The lit lamp is connected to switch No 2.

The warm lamp is connected to switch No. 1.

The cold lamp is connected to switch No. 3.

  2. Brilliant! I was overthinking the whole thing, and of course, came nowhere near the solution.

    1. Do NOT put water near electrical appliances. For example, do not make toast whilst lying in a a bath!

  5. Dearest Victor,
    Those were ALL very good ones!
    That 'Mom got you a present' could have been our Dido-boy kitty, bringing in another life frog in the middle of the night. Me having to catch it in the living room and then rescuing it by releasing it inside our pond or creek... Haha!
    Hugs,

    1. I must admit, I never figured it out either, JoeH. Now I read it, it does seem logical.

      God bless you and yours.
