L'fi your lashon, the dragons and fire are on one side ( when he turned around behind him was a fire, which of the same side as the dragons). So just walk the other way!
You're kidding. I was supposed to be medayik in that language?

There was 3 switches to the lights in the room and only had one chance to turn on the lights,how does he know which one of them is the switch ?(only go in the room once and had to know which switch it is)?
Is it good enough if he figures it out after he goes into the room? Or he has to figure it out before going in?

I looked up the answer so I won't divulge. However, the question should be made clearer.

There are 3 light switches each going to a different light. You have to figure out which goes to which. You have one chance before you walk into the room, but you can arrange the switches any way you like before walking in.

The answer to the light bulbs: Turn on switch A for 10 minutes, then turn it off. Afterward, turn on switch B and go check the bulb. If it's on, he knows that switch B is correct, if it's off and hot he knows that switch A is correct. If it's off and cold it's switch C.

Correct! This was a really old riddle.

Though the riddle could've used a bit more clarification. The purpose of the task was to identify the correct switch, not to simply get the light to turn on.

I'm not sure if this is a separate riddle or just an attempt at explaining the previous one, but see above.
