A wise King wants an honest child to take his place on
the throne. He gives each of his 3 daughters a pack of flower seeds
and tells them that the one who grows the most beautiful flowers from
these seeds will have his throne. Six months pass and the king checks
the flowers. The first 2 had beautiful flower beds while the last child
had nothing in her plot but weeds and no flowers. Yet, the king chose
this child to have the throne. Why?
The King did not give them proper seeds in the first place.
The third daughter did not cheat.
