A king finds a woman he wants to marry but she refuses. But since he is the king, she has no choice.
The king gives her a deal: he will write ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ on two pieces of paper. The papers will be put into a hat and she will choose one. If it says yes, then she will marry him, if it says no, then she will not marry him.
The only problem is that the king cheats by placing two pieces of paper that say yes into the hat, but the woman is the only one who sees this.
How can the woman avoid marrying the king?
The woman will have to draw one of the papers and swallow it.
She will not have to marry the king as the other piece of paper will have ‘Yes’ written on it.
