Another logic puzzle. Straight to the point.
A lovely princess was loved by many princes of other kingdoms, but she was notoriously picky about choosing her husband so that that it drove her father, the king, mad. Then one day the king decided that the next person who comes to propose, the king will force his daughter to marry him. Then a farm boy came up the road to propose to the princess. The king, regretting his vow, decided on a plan to get rid of the boy and get a good suitor. He said to the boy, ” Tomorrow I’ll have you, in front of everyone, select one of two pieces of folded paper. One says princess and the other says death. You get what you select.” The boy, judging the king’s wicked grin, knew that both would say death. He agreed though and in two days he and the princess were married.
How did he do it?
