The answer to the riddle – #27 How Many Husbands Will Be Killed

Answer:

All of the men (n) who are cheating will be killed and it will take one less than the number of cheating men nights (n-1) for their wives to discover this.

If one man was cheating, and that woman hadn’t have heard of any other infidelity she would know it was her husband that was cheating. If there was two men cheating, both of their wives would think that since they have only heard of one man cheating he should die the next morning. If he doesn’t die, she knows her husband must also be cheating and that’s why the other husband didn’t die. Following this logic, you can know that all of the men will die after one less night than there is cheating men
