The Best of Three Evils

A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven’t eaten in 3 months.

Which room should he choose to have the best chance of staying alive?

The third room, since the lions would have died from starvation.

Haven’t checked the answer but I think the lion is the best one because they haven’t eaten for 3 months they will be already dead bye then

I’m guessing the room with the lions because they starved to death.

Definitely the Lions room because an average lion can survive without food for about week or 8 days at the most !
