Amazing simple puzzle
In the court of "Hindiainfo" where many queer things happen, one day the king called his sage who was the teacher of his princes. He wanted to check the intelligence of the newly appointed teacher. So he called the sage and gave him the following task.
"You are given 4000 oranges and a dozen(12) baskets. The baskets are quite large and let us assume that there will be no problem of capacity and they can hold any number of oranges.
You need to distribute all the oranges in these 12 baskets after which the baskets will be sealed.
You should have placed the oranges among these 12 baskets in such a way that, no matter what number of oranges is demanded by me subsequently, you should give that many number of oranges in terms of baskets –i.e., you are not allowed to break up any basket. The number of oranges demanded may be 3789 or 121 or 2183 or any such number .You should hand over the oranges demanded in terms of a few or all baskets( in case 4000 is demanded)."
The sage, who was a very intelligent man, after a little thought agreed to do it and requested the king to provide him the oranges as well as those extraordinary baskets.
Will the sage be able to do it? Can you do it? How will you do it?
