7. Anyone know the answer to this
IIM question.. Answer if you can..
On a national holiday a lady , a school boy , a lawyer , a pilot and a doctor were travelling in a bus �� which was climbing up on a hill.. Suddenly the bus was hijacked by one of the passengers.. With tension arose, the bus driver collides the bus with a car accidentally in a hairpin bend.. Everyone in the bus fell unconscious except school boy who was seriously injured. Everyone were hospitalised ..
When police made an enquiry at school boy about hijack, he said 3 words "i am dying" to police and died.. Next minute police arrested the hijacker.
How?

1. a doctor is hijacker...........the school boy saying I m dying means call the doctor, he is a hijacker.....

2. The Lawyer is the culprit.
How do you know a person is a pilot, a doctor or a lawyer? By their uniform. Now, doctors and pilots do work on national holidays, but a lawyer does not. The lawyer was wearing the uniform as a disguise, so he is the suspecious person.

3. By handcuffs..����

8. Pilot is the answer. If you remove the letter I from pilot it means plot.so he was the one who plotted the hijack.makes sense.

9. The school boy was son of that lady. Bus driver was her husband. The driver was brutal to his wife and to teach him lesson, boy hijacked bus. Lawyer wanted to stop the boy, instead lady stopped lawyer as she wanted to marry him and put a case on driver. He said yes and eventually boy got new father. Mean while gay doctor hold hand of gay pilot and ran away in jungle to spend rest of the day.
Lawyer was kissing his new fiance sitting in mid row seat. and boy was standing next to driver.
Seeing all this, driver lost his control and met with an accident. Boy was standing and hence was thrown around hitting many things, getting injured. Rest were saved as they were sitting.
So boy was the one who hijacked bus.

10. Its a troll question... the question is, how was the hijacker arrested? answer is, by handcuffs!!! -_- please dont hit me... im equally pissed off with this

11. Its hand cuffs bcoz everyone is unconsious. No one know whether hijack done. It can b accident also. Story is to confuse people simple que raise in d end. Next min police arrest hijacker. N how?- simple with handcuffs only.

It is not about who was hijacker and nothing. Think different and creative. Nice try ppl.

12. Something to do with National holiday. ..

13. Its school boy..wat is schoolboy doin on a national holiday...moreover he wud hav threatned the other passengers..dats y he got more injured when the bus was hit by car..nd rest ppl were sitting in their seats..which caused them to go unconscious..makes sense?

14. The ques does nt make sense. On a national holiday, school boy cannt go to school. Bt he cn definately go to anywhere else. Moreover.. others got unconscious nd notng happnd to them. Boy was seriously injured and died later bt was conscious...????

15. I love your blog. This is a cool site and I wanted to post a little note to tell you, good job! Best wishes!!!

16. The other passengers would have told the police who hijacked the bus....the passengers fell unconsious after the accident.....it is not mentioned whether they were still unconsious when the police arrived for questioning...they might be consious then....

17. PILOT
National Holidays Jan 26, Aug 15th & Oct 2nd
It s oct 2nd and boy saying" I am dying".Mahatma Gandhiji died on Jan 30th and every year we celebrate Jan 30th as Martyrs' day.Pilot is a fighter pilot so Martyr and thus pilot is hijacker.

18. The boy was standing and threatening all.. In that collision all went unconscious by hitting the front seats, while the boy hit lost balance and crashed through the front window and fell outside the bus and injured severely.. So he is the culprit who hijaked the bus.

19. The question is not who is the hijacker... the question is how police arrested him/her... In my openion the police should have a suspect and ask the boy that WHAT THE LADY/PILOT/DOCTOR/LAWYER?DRIVER SAID LAST???? And the boy replies I AM DYING... Otherwise a schoolboy admitted in a hospital never knows he is going to die.. THE THREE WORDS HE SAYS IS AN ANSWER FOR THE QUESTION ASKED BY THE POLICE....
