DIGITAL KING

 

A ruthless king has a cellar of 1,000 bottles of very expensive wine. An assassin infiltrates the wine cellar to poison the wine. Fortunately the king’s guards catch the plotter after she has poisoned only one bottle. Unfortunately, the guards don’t know which one of the bottles is poisoned. The poison is so strong that no amount of dilution will make it safe to drink. Furthermore, it takes one month to have an effect. The ruthlessking decides he will get some of the prisoners in his vast dungeons to test the wine. Being an intelligent, if ruthless, king, he knows he needs to sacrifice fewer than 10 prisoners and know for a certainty which one of the wine bottles was poisoned. How does he know that?
