Rope !! (solve it)
Rajeev is trapped atop a building 200m high. He has with him a rope 150m long. There is a hook at the top where he stands. Looking down, he notices that midway between him and the ground, at a height of 100m, there is a ledge with another hook. In his pocket lies a Swiss knife. Hmm... how might he be able to come down using the rope, the two hooks and the Swiss knife?
Cut the rope into a large 100m piece and a small 50m piece.
Did not even used the knife.!@# at all
Um, to cut the rope? :)
Apparently it is an abomination to use the Swiss knife without mentioning its name.
