Water in the DesertLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Two men have planned a trip across the desert and back. The day before, they tie a barrel with all the water they'll need to their donkey. They go to sleep. At 11:30 p.m. the first wife gets up and puts a small hole in the bottom of the barrel, calculating that at its rate of coming out, the men will have no water left on the way back. At 1:30 a.m. the second of the men's wife gets up. She sneaks out and poisons the water in the barrel to kill the men and goes back to sleep. Sure enough, along the trip they die. Who is guilty of murder?
AnswerAlthough they are both guilty of attempted murder, the wife who poisoned the water is guilty because they drank that first and died of it before all the tainted water leaked out.
