NOt right;
Can anyone answer this?
2) A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms: The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?

 3)(in your head!) Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total? pls sincerely add it in mind.....

..... Lol... I will guess none, since its a hole and all., but in all probability, Gokul is probably correct as perhaps some dirt was blown back in.

I'd pick the assassins since they are perhaps sentenced to die too, hence no reason to shoot me. And then we could work on a plan as to how to get out of there.

900 more and I would have answered "average velocity" or "average potential"

Why?

the room full of lions that haven't eaten for 3 years, because they will be dead

 Johno's correct....
 Q: A man is in a room with no windows, no door, no holes in the ceiling and no trapdoors in the floor. How does he escape the room?
 The same way he got in.
 Without demolishing the room... (or rather I should say: "How did he get in then?")
 Through either the holes in the wall or floor or the trapdoors in the wall or ceiling.
 It's far simpler than that: through the doorway (there's no door).

Surely that's a hole in the wall though, so Healey01 is right!
