    Answers:

    We should ask one of them

    "What should other man tell if i ask which is the door to heaven?"

    Go through the door which he hasn't said

    Explanation:
    Let two door be A and B
    Assume A is the door to heven
    Case 1:
    Question asked to the lier
    The other man always tell the truth so he pick A.But the lier will say B
    Case 2:
    Question asked to the man who tells truth
    The lier will pick B.And the true man tell the truth.

    So both will pick B.So go through A the other door

    "Question not upto the standard put some complicated one"

    The question should be "Lie about the door to heaven". The answer from both the liar and the truth speaking person would point to the door of the hell, irrespective of against which gate they are positioned".

    The question which can be asked to both is
    " is the other person saying true if he says this door is to heaven "
    let door1-heaven
    door2-hell
    question to person who says truth always-is the other person saying the truth if he says heaven is door 1 .then his answer will be obvisuly "no" bcoz he says truth and the other person "s answer if asked is that door1 is heaven" his answer will be "yes" .and similarly the same question to person who says false then hi answer will be "no"
    because he always lies
    the actually answer when asked to truth person will be "yes"
    hence
    it is door1 -heaven
    if both of them say no to this question asked
    just test u will get it

    what i ask for any one of them is
    ques) whether u come with till heaven's door?

    then obviously the lier dont answer is " i don't come".
    but the other person definetly say " i'll come with u"
    thats enough to know how is the lier and what is the door to heaven.

    We can ask a question to both of them n that question would be "Can you please tell me which is the door to HEAVEN?"

    If this question is asked to any body i.e, either to truth speaker or liar both will point the same door.

    you can ask one of them
    "if i ask a question,that where does the other door leads, what will be your's and his answer".
    now if he is telling the truth,then the two answer given by him would be different(ie heaven,hell or hell,heaven)and if he is lying then his answer would same(ie hell,hell or heaven,heaven)

    The question that should be asked should be such that we know the answer of that particular question.Right!!
    So the most probable one in this case is "What do you think Which is peaceful,Heaven or Hell?".
    We know Heaven is where peace of soul lies.So we will quickly judge the person who is speaking truth and who is false.

    Assume tat the color of the door is black or any color you required. We can ask question to anyone as "Wats the color of the door?". If he replies correctly wat color the door is , then he is the truth teller and another one is lier.

    The answer is simple.
    *Frist we will ask one question at anybody(among two),which we have already known.
    1)If we ask a question to true person ,the answer would correct. Then we find the true person.
    2)If we ask a question to lier, the answer would wrong.Then we find the lier person.
