A prisoner is told, “If you tell a lie we will hang you; if you tell the truth we will shoot you.”
What can he say to save himself?
Share it with your friends on WhatsApp and Facebook.
The prisoner can say “You will hang me“.
If they hang him, then the statement was true and they could only hang him for telling a lie.
If they shoot him, then it makes the statement a lie and they were only to shoot him for telling the truth.
An alternate solution is to say, “You will not shoot me,” leading to the same quandary for the killers.

“You will hang me”, I’d have said that
He has to say truth ,he ‘ll be shooterd with camera…………..☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️
Say……please Guard ….is it true u’ve stopped beating your wife and molesting your children? Am I telling the truth or telling a lie…. Sir?
Or just say….I know your going to hang me.
You could just say nothing bc they may just get angry and hurt u bc of that jacka** response
Say u will not shoot or hang me because that is the same
I am lying. It cannot be true, because then it is a le. And it cannot be a lie because then it would be the truth. Since it is a paradox, they cannot hang or shoot him.
“you will not shoot me” can also be the answer
im very tired an this made me cry
Say o.k. Because that is not a lie or truth or stay silent.
You will hang me
