This is a test that are given to some Japanese people applying for jobs.  How quickly can you figure it out?  It took me 5 1/2 mins.A family and a cop and a robber need to cross a riverThere is a mother, a father, 2 daughters, 2 sons, 1 cop and 1 robber

Here are the rules:
  • Only 2 persons on the raft at a time
  • The father cannot stay with any of the daughters, without their mother's presence
  • The mother cannot stay with any of the sons, without their father's presence
  • The thief cannot stay with any family member, if the Policeman is not there
  • Only the Father, the Mother and the Policeman know how to operate the raft
  • No One can swim they all must ride across ON the raft
  • When you figure out the answer or think you did send me a personal message and I will tell you if you are right.  :)
