One evening there was a murder in the home of married couple, their son and daughter. One of these four people murdered one of the others. One of the members of the family witnessed the crime.

The other one helped the murderer.

These are the things we know for sure:

1. The witness and the one who helped the murderer were not of the same sex.

2. The oldest person and the witness were not of the same sex.

3. The youngest person and the victim were not of the same sex.

4. The one who helped the murderer was older than the victim.

5. The father was the oldest member of the family.

6. The murderer was not the youngest member of the family.

Who was the murderer?

We know from (3) that the youngest person was not the victim, from (4) that the youngest person was not the helper and from (6) that the youngest person was not the killer. The youngest person can only have been the witness therefore. If we make up a chart there are now three possible combinations:

Oldest person (father) H H M

Next to oldest (mother) V M H

Next to youngest (son) M V V

Youngest (daughter) W W W

(H = Helper ; V = Victim ; M = Murderer ; W = Witness)

We can work out from (5) that the father was the oldest, from (2) that the youngest person must have been the daughter. Therefore the next to the youngest must have been the son and the next to the oldest, the mother.

Mystery Riddles #25 - Secret Code Riddle
Difficulty Level      Popularity Quotient     
You are giving an intelligence test. In that, you are provided by the code - MOD OAT AIM DUE TIE 

You know that only one word from this code is true and the rest ones are only put in to make the task difficult for you. To understand, you are provided with a clue – If you are told any one of the characters of the code word, you can find out the word easily. 

Can you deduce the actual code word from the entire code?
The code word is TIE.

Let us assume that the word is MOD. Now if you are told one character of this word, you would not be able to identify the number of vowels in the word. For example if you are told M, then the word can be MOD or AIM but they both have different number of vowels. If you are told about O, then there are two words MOD and OAT which again have different number of vowels. If you are told about D, there are two words again MOD and DUE which have different numbers of vowels again.

In such manner, all the words that have M, O or D in them can be excluded. Then only word that remains is TIE.
If you are told about T, there are two words OAT and TIE which both have two vowels.
If you are told about I, there are two words AIM and TIE which both have two vowels.
If you are told about E, there are two words DUE and TIE which both have two vowels.

Thus TIE is the code word.

You are called to investigate a murder in a house. There are six suspects of the murder. The corpse was found in the living room. You begin your investigation by asking three questions to all of them. Four people among the six suspects are liars. Thus, they speak at least one lie but not necessarily all lies. It is confirmed that one of them is a murderer.

The responses of all six people are as given below:
Patrick was in the 2nd bedroom.
So was I.
Max was in the bathroom.

I agree with Jerry that Max was in the bathroom and Patrick was in the 2nd bedroom.
But I think that Jerry was in the living room, OH MY GOD!

Molly was in the kitchen with Mike.
But I was in the bathroom.

I still say Patrick was in the 2nd bedroom and Catherine was in the bathroom.
Jerry was in the 1st bedroom.

Patrick was in the bathroom with Mike.
And Molly was in the kitchen.

Max was in the kitchen.
And I was in the 2nd bedroom with Patrick.

The house accommodates eight rooms: Living Room, 3 Bedrooms, Kitchen, Bathroom, Garage and Basement. Any number of people could have been present in any of the rooms at the same time.

Can you identity the killer, the four liars and the position of each one of them during murder?

Let us suppose that Patrick was not in the second bedroom. This proposes that Jerry, Molly, Max and Mike are liars. It infers that Patrick and Catherine speak truth. But that is not possible as they do not coincide on Mike's location. Therefore, we are wrong with our assumption and Patrick was in the second bedroom.
So far, we have established the fact that Patrick was in the second bedroom. Additionally, Patrick and Catherine are liars

Now, let us suppose that Jerry speaks truth. This proposes that Max was in the bathroom and Jerry in the second bedroom. This infers that Molly and Max are liars as they told that Jerry was not in the second bedroom. Also it implies that Mike lied, as he said Max was in kitchen. Therefore we have three new liars now, which totals the number of liars to 5, which contradicts the given situation in the question.
Hence, now we have established the fact that Jerry is a liar.

Let us now suppose that Molly speaks truth. This proposes that Jerry was in the living room and Max was in the Kitchen. This infers that Max and Mike are liars. But again, this is contradicting the situation as we have already established the fact that there are again 5 liars (counting above 3 established liars)
Therefore, now we have established that Molly is a liar. Max and Mike speak truth. Catherine was in the bathroom. Jerry was in the first bedroom. Max was in the kitchen. Mike was in second bedroom with Patrick.

The killer has to be Molly as no one else was present in the living room.

Two men wake up only to find out that they are trapped in a jigsaw trap with their hands trapped in sort of metal bars and body tied to a chair. In front of them is one large glass of a drink topped up with ice cubes. Suddenly a picture appears on the screen in the room. The jigsaw doll appears and it says, The drink that are kept before you are poisoned. But in order to survive, you must drink all of them lifting the glass from your mouth. After you drink them, your hands will be freed automatically from the hold of the bars. If you throw that drink, you are doomed here forever. Can you push your limits in order to survive?

Immediately after, one of them lifts the glass from mouth and gulps down the entire drink which feels pretty cold due to so many ice cubes. Immediately after drinking, the bars holding his hands are lifted and he is set free. Seeking that he might die with the poison soon, he tries to help the other person. After about half an hour when he is not able to set the other person free, he acknowledges that he managed to survive. Both of them thinks that it might be a hoax warning after all and thus the second person drinks his drink as well. The metal bars are lifted and he is set free but he dies after a couple of minutes.

How is this possible that only one of them died after drinking the same drink? (The poison was in both the glasses)
It is quite possible. The poison was not on the drink but in the middle of ice cubes. The first one drank immediately and thus the poison could not reach his body while when the other drank after half an hour, the ice cubes had melted. Thus he died.

The guy was killed a long ago, but he could not realize it till he reached his room. No need to be confused. Actually the killer has somehow inserted an extremely fine and thin incision blade in the belt of the guy. The guy did not feel anything at the moment as it was extremely fine. But when he was changing his clothes and took of his pant, the incision knife that was in his body, came out stuck to the belt cutting him very finely on the insides. That is the reason there was so much blood loss that he died and it was so fine that it was not visible to the naked eyes.

Difficulty Level      Popularity Quotient     
Many people would think Friday the 13th will be an unlucky day. Is it possible that there is no Friday on 13th through the whole year? How many Fridays at 13th can we have in a year at most? Can you calculate it out?
We can calculate out how many days there will be for the 13th on each month if we count from the beginning of the year (January 1). Then we divide total days by 7 to get the remainders. We also need to consider the leap year. Through the whole year we had all kinds of remainders, from 0 to 6. The minimum of occurence for all the unique remainders was 1. It means that we have at least one Friday on 13th. In a regular year, the best chance you can get 3 Fridays on 13th, which are in February, March and December because the remainders of these 3 months are 2. In a leap year, the best chance you also can get 3 Fridays on 13th, which are in January, April and July because the remainders of these 3 months are 6.
