**Interview Puzzles:Four friends A, B, C, D need to cross a bridge**

A maximum of 2 peoples can cross at a time..

It is night and they have just 1 lamp.

People that cross the bridge must carry the lamp to see the way..

A pair must walk together at the speed of slower person…

Speeds of

A : 1 minute to cross bridge

B : 2 minutes to cross bridge

C : 7 minutes to cross bridge

D : 10 minutes to cross bridge

Now question is…

what is d total minimum time required by all 4 friends to cross the bridge….?

**Scratch your brains…**

Answer of this puzzls:

Answer of the Four friends A, B, C, D need to cross a bridge is : **17 Minutes**

**How** : We need to find out the minimum time required by them to cross the bridge.

Key point over here is that “A pair must walk together at the speed of slower person”.

Keeping that in mind below would be the steps to get minimum time.

- A and B will walk together and the time they will take is :
**2 minutes**(time taken by B) - Now A will return back, since they need lamp, so again time taken by A :
**1 minute** - Now C and D will walk together and join B, they will take
**10 minutes**to cross (time taken by D) - Now B will come back with lamp and he will take
**2 minutes** - Finally A and B will cross the bridge in
**2 minutes**(time taken by B)

If we accrue these all, we will have total **17 minutes**
