The greatly feared captain of the pirates "Schalkimnack" was not only famous for his cruelty but also for baffling his prisoners with difficult brain twisters. This is one of his favourite riddles:

Schalkimnack took a gold coin an throw it overboard into the sea. He asked:

"Did the sea level ...

  • a) rise,
  • B) sink or
  • c) stay like before?"

If one of the prisoners could solve the riddle, he was set free, but in case of giving the wrong answer, he was thrown to the sharks. Legend relates that until now, nobody could manage to solve the riddle.

Now you've got caught by Schalkimnack!

Can you solve the riddle?
