A black man dressed all in black, wearing a black mask, stands at a crossroads in a totally black-painted town. All of the streetlights in town are broken. There is no moon. A black-painted car without headlights drives straight toward him, but turns in time and doesn't hit him. How is this possible?

Hint: Is there another source of light?

In ancient Greece, when the Gods ruled the world, Iganor, the God of bad luck, sentenced a mortal warrior to death. Iganor was a reasonable God and allowed the warrior to choose his method of death. The warrior was allowed to make one statement. Iganor decided that if the statement was true, the warrior was to be fed to the dragons and if the statement was false, the warrior was to be killed by a poisoned fruit tart! The warrior mulled his predicament over and finally made the statement. Iganor was so confused by the warrior's statement, that he had to let the warrior go free. What was the warrior's statement?

Apratim the answer to your first question is probably 12.
Because the pattern i think is that in the first row the product of the first two numbers is (3 x 4) = 12. And 12 is the sum of the third and the last number (9 + 3) = 12. We can see the similar pattern in the next two steps as well. So in the last row, the product of the first two numbers is (7 x 3) = 21 and 9 + 12 = 21. Therefore I think 12 is the correct answer.

@Apratim....i am not sure but according to me....the warrior said that he would be killed by the poisoned fruit tart....now if the statement was false the warrior would be killed by the poisoned fruit tart....but in that case the warrior can argue
that he had guessed right....then if he is fed to the dragons....the condition wont be valid...not sure about this though...can be wrong

Try this one out:

Five men A, B, C, D, E are wearing caps of black or white colour without each knowing the colour of his cap. It is known that a man wearing a black cap always speaks the truth while a man wearing a white cap always lies. If they make the following statements, find the colour of the cap each of them is wearing:

A : I see three black and one white cap.
B : I see four white caps.
C : I see one black and three white caps.
D : I see four black caps
