Coin on the table
The solution to that question is not perfectly right. When the table can only hold even number of coins, the first guy would lose the game.
But its a round table. Assuming you go first and place the first coin directly in the center, there is no way the table will only hold an even number of coins.
u have to put the coin in centre ..u can't loose than ...see if u put the coin in the centre .....the no of coins that can be kept around that coin will be even always (geometry) ....and again no of coins which will surround the second layer will be even so if u have placed first coin u can;t loose !!!
