Dear Google Recruiters,

Here is my answer to one of your interview questions that was posted by Tihomir Nakov.

Question: Every man in a village of 100 married couples has cheated on his wife. Every wife in the village instantly knows when a man other than her husband has cheated, but does not know when her own husband has. The village has a law that does not allow for adultery. Any wife who can prove that her husband is unfaithful must kill him that very day. The women of the village would never disobey this law. One day, the queen of the village visits and announces that at least one husband has been unfaithful. What happens?

My Answer: All the villagers laugh at the Queen for being so naive as to think that only one married man in a hundred would commit adultry even when faced with certain death.

Please send me a cash advance on my first paycheck at your earliest convenience.

Yours Truly,
Caffeinated Coder

nothing happens, the first line says that all the men have cheated and the penalty for adultery is death. So the men were already dead by the time the queen arrived to announce that one had been unfaithful
