Hi everyone!

I have an interesting riddle that I'd like to share with you. I'll say it by my own terms. Hope it's clear. I know the answer, by the way.

There are a man, one sheep , tow wolfs and a boat. The boat accommodates for ONLY 2 persons (even animals are included in this term). There is also a river that the man wants to cross to the other side. You can imagine it like this:

B Land ........................... river ................................ A Land

The problem is that if the man tried to cross the river with one of the wolfs, the other wolf would attack the sheep and eat it. And if he took the sheep first to the other side, then turned back to the land A to bring one of the wolfs to the other side B, this wolf immediately would attack the sheep and eat it once the man turned back to the other side A to bring the last wolf.

The man wants to bring all of his animals ( 2 wolfs, 1 sheep) to the other side safely without losing anyone, and he will be with them, of course.

How could you solve it?

Waiting to read your thoughts...
