Brainteaser #4 – Camels In The Desert

Two camels

A rich sheik is growing old and must give his vast fortune to one of his two children. He has an idea. His two sons must race their camels. Whichever camel crosses the line LAST will win the sheik’s fortune for its owner.

The two sons start the race and wander aimlessly for days and days. Neither son is willing to give up and cross the finish line. Out of desperation, they eventually seek out a wise man to ask for advice. The wise man shares some wisdom with the two sons, then the brothers leap onto the camels and charge towards the finish line at full speed!

What did the wise man say?

He said that the rules of the race were that the OWNER of the camel that crosses the line last wins. The wise man advised that they switch camels.
