Cross The River Puzzle

Cross The River Puzzle - 12 july

Two boys wish to cross a river. The only way to get to the other side is by boat, but that boat can only take one boy at a time. The boat cannot return on its own, there are no ropes or similar tricks, yet both boys manage to cross using the boat.

  1. Both of them are not on same side of river. On opposite sides, hence they both can cross.

  2. It is not mentioned that both the boys are same side or not..........??????

    If they are in different sides one can cross and then another can take the boat and cross............

    if both are same side 1st can cross and come back with boat and then second can cross and come back..........

    In that way both should have crossed the river but they came back that was not essential condition as per puzzle!!

  3. two boys on opposite bank of river ;)

  4. Cross The River Puzzle is nice
