You are in a boat in the middle of a river. You have 2 cigarettes and have to light any one cigarette. You don't have anything else with you in the boat. How will you do it?
Solution 1: Take one cigarette and throw it in the water. So the boat will become "Lighter." Now using this Lighter you can light the other cigarette.
Solution 2: You throw a cigarette up and catch it. Catches win Matches. Using the matches that you win, you can light the cigarette.
