Puzzle - 32

A father lived in Middle East having own Horse Firm asked his 2 sons to race their camels from Point A to Point B. His methodology in winning the game was whose Horse comes last considered winner. Hearing this the brothers, really slowed down as much as they could but still cannot reach the specified point because each other want to be slower than other as a result they moved only very few yards away from Point A at the same time Point B is miles away from it, They happen to meet a wise person and got a brilliant idea. After talking to the wise person they instantly got up on the Horses and chase them to the maximum fast as to reach Point B.

The Question is What did the wise person advise them?

Answer: He asked them to swap their horses

ok i am comin up with this..I have no idea whether it is true or not. The wise person said that you don choose the strategy first but choose a stratgey based on the situation which in this case in middle east its so hot that if you make the horses run as fast as possible they will become tired soon and lag behind...hmm is it rite?

Thanks for ur comment Beautiful Lion.

Illa, wat Its a true only if either of them willing to give up. Since no other try. I might as well reveal the answer now. Its very simple, just guess what happens if they race after their own horses. Whoever comes first will still win right?

Akssara-

Its a good puzzle. Even the answer is as puzzling as the Puzzle. I could not understand how the horse coming first wins when the methodology talks about who comes last wins ?

Any how puzzle is supposed to be puzzling. So let me be bepuzlled !

Hi Illa,

Since they have exchanged the horse, whoever Horse comes first will be the real loser as the condition is that their original Horse should come last. Got it right now?

Hope this clarifies your confusion also Far East Square...
