    A man is found dead in the middle of an empty room exept for a small puddle of water. All windows/doors are closed from the inside.

    Correct!

    OK, a VERY easy one.....a father and son are in a car accident. The father dies. The son is rushed to the hospital and needs surgery. The doctor is about to start operating but stops and says, "I can't operate, this is my son!" How is this possible?

    The doctor is infact the actual father of the man brought in. The man who died was his grandson, who had a child of his own?

    Sorry ExtraOrdinaryJo, but I am not with you on this one:

    If you roll a dice, what is your chance of getting 6? 1/6

    But: if you roll a dice and get a six, what is your chance of getting a 6 again? Actually, again 1/6, because the result of your first try has no influence on your second try. After all, the dice does not know or care what you had in the first try.

    The situation is the same in your example: the fact that the family already has a girl has no influence on the question whether the second child is a boy or a girl, so the chance that the other child is a girl too is 50% (close to), in my view, or am I wrong?

    The situation is different when you ask, "If a family has two kids, what is the chance that both are girls?" Then the correct answer would be 1/4 (25%), because there are 4 different combinations (as Chick-Dance pointed out), and oly one is girl-girl. But if we already know one of the two is a girl, then only two possiblities are left, boy or girl, 1/2 (50%).

    So ToolkiT was right, I guess...

    110 replies over night... what have I started here?

    Anyway, sorry to say that none of the answers (120, 264, 288, 290, 338, 576 and 864) are the right answer to the original question. One was very close though, so don't give up!
