Puzzle Story - A Grain of Grain
Posted 15 January 2013 - 10:46 AM
Where the bags marked so the king would know who's it belonged to?
Where all the peasants supposed to give the same amount except for the one Peasant? (I may have asked this already)

I may have asked this already - you did (not that there is anything wrong with that), note that all of the bags were to be the same size.

Or did he give the correct amount of bags, but did not fill them all the way?
They appeared full
Did he fill them partly with grain, and partly something else?
In a way. When he turned the bags in they appeared filled to the brim with only the grain (whic we will say is rice (the fact that its rice is only mildly important (it could just as easily be wheat or soybeans or corn))

Did they appear full because the bag was filled half-way with sand or something like that?
They appeared full because something was added to the rice but when the bags were submitted there was only rice in it.
(I chose rice only for the reason that people have more experience with it in it's dry seed form)

- Did the peasant give wet (heavy) grain, rather than dry (light) grain?
Ergo his bags appeared full but were light. A portion of the story has been solved.
