first the two sons will cross the river, then one son will remain on the other bank & the other son will take the boat back, then father will cross the river and the son already there will come back with the boat & in the last turn two sons will get across the river

Next puzzle

There are 10 apples in a basket. I give my 10 friends an apple each. After 1 hr each friend has one apple in his custody but there is still one apple remaining in the basket. How is it possible?
I want no cheating please.

I will come back after 1 week and see if anyone has solved this correctly I would appreciate his or her effort or if you cant solve it I would give you the answer.

Sorry, Very Sorry

I give my 10 friends an apple each from the basket containing the apples. And no one gets it in any other way.

when a basket has 11 apples it will always be containing 10 for 10+1=11

i'm taking a wild guess. Maybe to your first nine friends, you give them an apple each. To your tenth friend, you hand her the basket containing the apple. She has an apple, but she also has the basket containing the apple. Hope thist is the right answer Shaswata.

Now, the next brain teaser.

A man says,"The day before yesterday I was 25 years old but next year I would be 28 years old."
When is this man's birthday?
( I want the exact date and month)

This is a lot easier compared to the previous one.

At a restaurant downtown, Mr. Red, Mr. Blue, and Mr. White meet for lunch. Under their coats
they are wearing either a red, blue, or white shirt.

Mr. Blue says, "Hey, did you notice we are all wearing different colored shirts from our names?" The man
wearing the white shirt says, "Wow, Mr. Blue, that's right!"

Can you tell who is wearing what color shirt?
