    You are driving a car and there is only one space available in your car for lift and you see three persons outside.

    • Old lady about to die and needs shelter in car
    • Old friend who saved your life
    • Your perfect dream partner

    Whom would you save and why ?

    Reason is that, My friend is able to reach his destination without anyone's help.

    My perfect dream partner can go with my friend, no need to worry about ;)

    Because I can trust my friend..he has already saved my life so will save the old lady also.. I would lend him the car to take the old woman to hospital.

    I will stay with my perfect dream partner :D

    Normally there's a clause in this kind of question to make the choice more stark, e.g. an atom bomb is on its way or something and the two you don't save will die or whatever.

    Since there isn't, I'd pick the old lady. The other two can wait. Then when she's pegged it I'd have to see why each of the other two needs a lift, and if I can sort one out then return for the other.

    But I like one of naimish's 9,000,000 answers which is to give the car to the friend and let him look after the old lady, and to stay with PDP, which has to be more valuable than a car and all the junk that means you can't transport all 3 anyway.

    I thought this would be very easy as we have lots of them when you Google it but I changed some wording here and there as well :D

    Naimish that was a good one.

    i never talked about multiple answers! I asked about is it okay to post one answer in multiple posts, like i did? I could have asked the same question in one post, but i took four posts from 10:19 to 10:21... Is that fine? If it is, then i can just keep posting like this and then don't warn me that i have been increasing my post count, and violating a rule...if not why no action?

    Warnings about increased post count only apply to people trying to increase their post count just to get past a particular limitation, e.g. newbs who can't edit or post URLs.

    If you're going to split a single answer across multiple posts that would get really tedious to read really quickly and I think if you continued to do that pointlessly a warning would be fair do's. But I don't see a problem with afterthought after afterthought, so I don't think naimish has done anything to warrant a warning. (Why are you trying to force this issue anyway? Do you think naimish needs punishing?)
