## Guess hat color

Consider the picture below:

In this picture, there are 4 prisoners buried in the ground. There is a brick wall separating A and B. C can see B and D can see both B and C. Between the 4 prisoners, 2 white and 2 black hats are worn. No one can see their own hat color. The hat color is fixed as shown in the picture. To survive, at least one prisoner must call out their hat color correctly. Who will call out the hat color?

#### One Response to Guess hat color

1. Sid Hollander had this to say about that:

Perhaps it is magical that the buried men can see but surely C, because he is a Bad guy and everybody knows that good guys wear white hats so he says, "My hat is Black! Besides he realizes that if it was white that D would see 2 white hats and know his hat was black. Timing is everything.
