55 - The Prisoner

A prisoner has been found guilty of his crimes and has been sentenced to death.

At the last minute, facing the executioner in the cell, he is given one final chance of walking away unharmed.

In front of the prisoner there are two solid doors.

He is told that one of the doors leads to freedom, but the other leads to a firing squad.

There are two guards - one in front of each door.

The prisoner is told that one of the guards always tells the truth and never a lie, and the other guard always tells lies and never the truth.

The executioner also tells the prisoner he is allowed to ask only one question, and he can only ask it to one of the guards.

What is the question he asks to be certain of walking free?
