This deceptively simple sounding puzzle is turning out to be incredibly
difficult. -At least for me. And since my objective in presenting these
puzzles is to put something out that both novice and expert coders can find
interesting... I'm going to offer an alterative puzzle for the random
drawing. Here goes:
There are 3 jars. A black jar, a white jar, and a black-and-white jar. Each
jar is filled with either black and/or white balls. The black jar can not
contain white balls. Likewise the white jar cannot contain black balls, and
the mixed jar cannot contain mixed balls.
To determine the contents of each jar how many balls must you extract?
