 One bag contains 13 white and 15 black marbles. Outside we have 28 black marbles. Every time I pick two marbles from the bag and place back one, whose color depends on the combination of the marbles I put out. Combos : OUT: 1 black-1 white IN : 1 white OUT: 2 blacks IN : 1 black OUT: 2 whites IN : 1 black What is always the color of the last marble remaining? 2 Answers1 white marble. In order to end up with all black marbles, you need an even number of white marbles in the bag at some point. (So you can remove them all in pairs and return black marbles). This means you need an odd number of white marbles outside the bag. You start with 0 white marbles outside the bag. However, the number of white marbles outside the bag will always be a multiple of 2. You only ever add 0 or 2 white marbles to the marbles outside the bag (1 b 1 w = return 1 w = 0 white marbles. Remove 2 w marbles return one b = + 2 white marbles outside the bag) Since it is impossible to ever have an odd number of white marbles outside the bag, it is impossible to ever have an even number of white marbles inside the bag. Thus, you can rule out the possibility of there being 13 white marbles outside the bag. Leaving only 1 possibility. That is 12 white marbles outside the bag and 1 on the inside. The last marble is always whiteI agree with nollag_trd, but to put it more succinctly: White marbles are only ever removed in pairs (if a single white is drawn, it's put back). There are an odd number of white marbles in the bag. Hence, the last white marble will never be removed.

 The classic problem with the 3litre and 5litre water jugs. How to measure 4 litres if you only have a 3lt and a 5lt water jug and unlimited water supply?2 AnswersFill up 5 litre jug and pour into 3 litre jug until full without spilling so that you have 2 litres in the 5 litre jug. Empty 3 litre jug and pour the 2 litres from the 5 litre jug into the 3 litre jug so that the 3 litre jug has 2 litres. Fill 5 litre jug again and pour into 3 litre jug without spilling. Now there is 4 litres of water in the 5 litre jug.Fill the 3 litre then pour into the five litre. Now refill the 3 litre jug and pour into the 5 litre until it is full. Now you are left with a full 5 litre jug, and 1 litre in the 3 litre jug. Now empty the the 5 litre jug, and then fill it with the 1 litre of liquid from the 3 litre jug, now we are left with a 5 litre jug with 1 litre of water inside. The remainder is now 4 litres.
