Once a king asked his adviser to write down
a sentence that, when he reads it in happiness
he becomes sad and when he reads it in sadness
he becomes happy.

What's that sentence will be ?

    $\begingroup$ could be many things - like "It's gonna change", "it's not going to last" etc. $\endgroup$ – Stender Apr 20 '18 at 12:29
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, King Akbar Birbal. I have read some puzzles of them and also i found some questions here like that, so I asked my first but simple puzzle here. $\endgroup$ – Kirankumar Dafda Apr 20 '18 at 12:30

He says

The time will pass soon.


If he is happy he know he will not be happy for long.


If he is sad he know he will not be sad for long.


I know there's a perfect answer to that, but here's a bit of funny answer.

I'll assume both the king and his advisor are also programmers (Yes, he's a modern king) So the sentence will actually read:
public static void main(string args[]) { KingsMood = !KingsMood; }

    $\begingroup$ But if King is JavaScript developer, then condition may differ than this, bit long with conditional statement ;) $\endgroup$ – Kirankumar Dafda Apr 20 '18 at 13:09
