Can the four prisoners be freed? If so, how?
Answer: Prisoner (2) is the right person for freedom.
if prisoner(2)’s hat is not opposite prisoner(3). then prisoner(1) gave the right answer.
bcoz if prisoner (2)’s and prisoner(3)’s hat is the same color then prisoner(1)’s hat will opposite color…
bcoz hats count is 2white and 2black.
So prison(2)’s hat and prisoner(3)’s hat will not the same color.
then prisoners(2) never know the hat color then so he will.
then prisoner(2) will just know that his hat is the opposite color of prisoner(3)’s hat.
