Which Chest Is Which
One day Arthur came to Merlin and asked him, "Show me how to be a wise and good king." Merlin replied, "If you can pass a series of mental tests, I will teach you".
Merlin then showed Arthur three chests, one was labelled GOLD COINS, the second was labelled SILVER COINS, and the last, GOLD OR SILVER COINS. He stated that all the three labels were all on the wrong chests. Given that one chest contained gold, one silver, and one bronze.
How many chests must Arthur open to deduce which label goes on which chest?
I'm confused. There is a chest full of bronze coins, but no label saying 'bronze coins'?
