12 men on an island riddle answer

Riddle: There are 12 men on an island. 11 weigh the same. 1 man is heavier or lighter. There is one sea-saw you can use only 3 times. How do you find the odd man out? Is this riddle possible?


firstly what we do is we will take the weight of 6 men on the one side and other 6 on the other side and will use this people for the second weighting process.

Second step we put 3 people on the one side and other 3 on the other side and do the same.

Here is some more explanation- First Weigh 6 on one side and 6 on the other is taken after that When one side is heavier, use those people for the second weighing.
Then, Put 3 people on one side and 3 on the other and When one side is heavier again, use those people.
Weigh one person on one side, and one on the other. If one side is heavier, that’s the heavy man. If both sides are equal, the one off the scale is heavier(more weight).
