Put on your logical caps to solve this riddle.
There was a tribal village that was managed by a powerful Leader.
There was a theft in the village which had occurred recently, however no one knew who it was.
After some investigation the police narrowed down on 8 suspects and brought them to the Leader.
The Leader gave each of them a stick and said, “These are magic sticks. Overnight the culprit’s stick will grow two inches longer than the rest. So tomorrow we will catch the thief.”
Even though the sticks did not have any magical power, the leader caught the thief in the morning.
How is it possible?
If you get the correct answer, share it with your friends on WhatsApp, Facebook and other social networking sites.
The sticks weren’t really magical but only the leader knew it.
Hence, the real criminal cut his stick shorter so it would remain the same length in the morning.
So the one with the shortest stick in the morning would be the real culprit.
Hence, the leader was able to catch the real thief.
