You may flick on any of the switches but you may go upstairs to inspect the bulbs only 1 time. How can you find out which switch is for each light bulb with just 1 inspection?

Answer:Flick ON switch #1 for about 3 to 5 minutes. Then switch it back to OFF.

Flick ON switch #2 then go upstairs and inspect the 3 bulbs.

1 of them is switched on, so you know that switch #2 belongs to that bulb.

Feel the 2 unlit bulbs. The hot bulb (which you lit for 3-5 minutes) is controlled by switch #1 and the cold bulb is controlled by switch #3
