Hey guys iam going to place puzzles..If anyone comes out with a answer i will mark them as best response....then i will start the next puzzle.....then the next best response.....So guys be first to get the best response... this is my first puzzle. 1.In this logic puzzle,a man is travelling with a tiger,a goat and a cabbage.At one point of his journey he comes to a river which is two deep to wade across and too wide to swim across,so he is in a confusion on how to continue.He notices a small boat tied to the near shore,but the boat is too small to take everyone at a time.But its large enough so that he can take one at a time,either tiger or goat or a cabbage at a time..not all at a time.. The problem is that if he takes the tiger first,then the goat will eat the cabbage,if he takes the cabbage first with him the tiger will eat the goat.. So the solution u have to give me is that how did he take everyone safely? Come on guys....who answers first will get the best response award...then i will start the next puzzle...........

He takes the goat, goes back then takes the tiger across but takes the goat back with him to get the cabbage. He takes the cabbage but leaves the goat. he then goes back to get the goat! "wahlaa"! Take care Florasaran.

well... I would take the goat across, then come back and get the tiger. When I dropped of the tiger, I would take back the goat and get the cabbage and drop it off with the tiger. Then go back for the goat, and I would have them all! Unless of course the tiger eats me in the boat, then swims to shore and eats the goat...leaving the cabbage for my wife to find, and make soup for her final meal! Since she too would then be eaten by the tiger. hehe

can he just take the cabbage and the tiger together? Surely a boat will be able to accommodate a small cabbage in addition to the two of them..
