Puzzler of the Day
You are an archaeologist that has just unearthed a long-sought triplet
of ancient treasure chests. One chest is plated with silver, one with
gold, and one with bronze. According to legend, one of the three chests
is filled with great treasure, whereas the other two chests both house
man-eating pythons that can rip your head off. Faced with a dilemma, you
then notice that there are inscriptions on the chests:
Treasure is in this Chest. Treasure is not in this Chest. Treasure is
not in the Gold Chest.
You know that at least one of the inscriptions is true, and at least one
of the inscriptions is false. Which chest do you open?
