The spirit lies behind Door 4.

If the spirit is behind Door 1, then both 2 and 3 are true.

If the spirit is behind Door 2, then both 1 and 4 are true.

If the spirit is behind Door 3, then 1, 3, and 4 are all true.

If the spirit is behind Door 4, then the statements on all the doors are false, except for that on Door 2. This matches the rules, and therefore, the resort hotel spirit lurks behind Door 4.

The waiter Riddle

Answer

The payments should equal the receipts. It does not make sense to add what was paid by the men ($12) to what was received from that payment by the waiter ($2)

Although the initial bill was $15 dollars, one of the five dollar notes gets changed into five ones. The total the three men ultimately paid is $12, as they get three ones back. So from the $12 the men paid, the owner receives $10 and the waiter receives the $2 difference. $15 – $3 = $10 + $2.
