Objective – ind the minimum number of times you need to go to the next room to identify which switch corresponds to the bulb in the other room.

       Solution for the switch of the Bulb:

As we know the rule and objective for this puzzle we can achieve our aim by following the below steps:-

  • Firstly, you have to initially turn on the first switch and keep it on for 2-3 minutes.
  • Next, turn off the first switch and turn on the second one.
  • Go and check to the other room as soon as you turn on the second switch.
  • If the bulb is glowing, the second switch corresponds to the light bulb.
  • However, if the bulb doesn’t glow, but it feels warm on touching, then it is clear that the first switch was assigned to the bulb.

If in case it is neither lit nor warm, then the third switch is the desired switch. Therefore, you need to go to the other room only once in order to find out which one is the accurate switch.
