    I have not solved this problem.I think my mind is on another frequency.But I know the solution because he told me.

    Explain how is it possible? :scratchin:

    In the tree are apples.
    I shake the tree, apples do not fall.
    In the tree are not apples.

    Why the hell are you guys spamming the Intelligence and machines subforum with riddles? This and the other thread have nothing to do with intelligence and machines.

    Solution:
    In the tree are two apples, so "in the tree are apples"-true.
    I shake the tree, one apple falls,so "I shake the tree, apples do not fall."-true.
    In the tree is a single apple,so "In the tree are not apples."-true

    There could be a couple of answers.

    1. The "apples" are not ripe yet and just starting to mature, green apples as it were.

    2. You did not shake the tree very hard so that they won't fall.

    In this case, "In the tree are apples"-not true.

    If you do not miss something and the problem data are accurate then 100.

    None. The one hit dies and falls to the ground, the other 99 take flight at the noise.

    I felt you.
    I was suspecting that the problem data are not complete.
    That is why I avoided saying 100 what.
