There are three gunmen on horses. Ab has a 100% chance of hitting his target when he shoots, but has a weak gun. He never misses. Bob also has a 100% chance of hitting, but he has a tremendous strong gun. However, Cam only has a 50% chance of hitting with his musket. Simultaneously, they all take a shot. One man is left alive. Who?



Answer

Cam is. The two other men, knowing they each shoot perfectly, would shoot each other knowing they still have a chance of surviving if Cam shoots at them. Nobody was shooting at Cam, therefore, he stays alive.
