Two people come to a river. There is a boat, however it can carry one person only. How can they each get to the other side of the river using the boat?


Answer

They are on opposite sides of the river (nowhere does it say that they come to the river together!).

One simply uses the boat to cross the river and the other person gets into the boat and takes it back to where it started.
