There is a game which is being played by 2 persons A and B. The 2 players start the game keeping identical 50 paise coins on a blank board alternately. The 50 paise coins can be kept in the board such that no part of the coin is outside the board. It can touch the board edge but cannot protrude outside the board. The two players can place the coins anywhere on the board. The coins placed during the course of the game can touch each other at the periphery but cannot overlap with the already placed coins.
The player who has space to place the last coin is the winner i.e the player placing the last coin on the board with no space available for the opponent is the winner. If you are one of the players, what will your strategy be so that you definitely win?
