Puzzle - Answer

You are in a room with 2 doors leading out.

Behind 1 door is a coffer overflowing with jewels and gold, along with an exit. Behind the other door is an enormous, hungry lion that will pounce on anyone opening the door.

You do not know which door leads to the treasure and exit, and which door leads to the lion.

In the room you are in are 2 individuals. The first is a knight, who always tells the truth, and a knave, who always lies.

Both of these individuals know what is behind each door. You do not know which individual is the knight, or which one is the knave.

You may ask one of the individuals exactly 1 question.

What should you ask in order to be certain that you will open the door with the coffer behind it, instead of the hungry lion?

 [Ref: ZQJM]

Answer:
You ask one of the individuals what the other one would say if you asked him which door is holding back the hungry lion and then open this door.
