# Golden rings - logic puzzle

Difficulty:

Rating: 3.0/5.0

A jeweller has three boxes: A, B and C. Each box contains three rings, which are either all made of pure gold, or all fake. The fake rings weight 1 gram less then the real ones. It is known that a least one of the boxes contains fake rings. The jeweller has a balance with three weights of exactly 1 gram. Is it possible that the jeweller finds out which box(es) contain the fake rings with weighing only once? And if so, how does she do it? (We define weighing only once that only once a situation is reached in which the balance is in equilibrium.)

# Given in marriage? - logic puzzle

Difficulty:

Rating: 2.9/5.0

King Kreso had decided that one of his daughters, princess Ikani had to marry the mean grave Gwenn. When Ikani did hear of this she started crying for days and she did not want to eat anything anymore. The king became a little bit uncomfortable with this situation, so he decided that she should take a small stone from a hat. If Ikani would take the white stone, she would have to marry grave Gwenn, if she takes the black one she would not have to. Some days later, grave Gwenn, King Kreso and Ikani are together on the lane to the castle which is paved with small black and with stones. The king asks grave Gwenn to take two stones and put it in his hat. Princess Ikani sees that the mean grave puts in two white stones. She thinks of saying this, but then most likely the procedure has to start over. Suddenly she gets a great idea. Some minutes later it is decided that princess Ikani does not have to marry grave Gwenn. What did princess Ikani do?
