A murder has been committed in a house. You are a detective and have to find out the murderer.
You investigate by asking three questions to each of the six suspects. Out of those six suspects, four are liars. It is not necessary that they speak everything a lie. But in their answers, there must be at least one lie. One of the six is the murderer.
There are eight rooms in the house in which the murder has been committed: Kitchen, Living Room, Bathroom, Garage, Basement, 3 Bedrooms.

You see a boat filled with people, yet there isn’t a single person on board. How is that possible?
A dead body is found outside a multi-story multinational company. The case is reported and a homicide detective is called on the crime scene.
He looks at the body and then towards the building. From the position of the body, it is evident that the victim committed suicide. He goes to the first floor of the building and then walks in the direction of the dead body, opens the window and toss a coin in the air.
He goes to second floor and again repeats the process. He keeps doing this till he is done on all the floors. Then he returns back to the floor and tells his team that it is a murder.
How in heaven did he deduce that?
