भेड़िया, बकरी, पत्तागोभी और रामकुमार... (The wolf, goat, cabbage and Ramkumar...)

विशेष नोट : अगर आप जवाब ढूंढ लेते हैं तो ठीक, वरना कमेंट लिख दीजिएगा, मैं जवाब आपको मेल के जरिये भेज दूंगा...

मेरे बचपन के दिनों में सबसे ज़्यादा पूछी जाने वाली पहेलियों में से एक है यह...

रामकुमार एक नदी के किनारे एक भेड़िये, एक बकरी और एक बोरा पत्तागोभी लिए खड़ा था...

सभी को नदी पार करनी थी, लेकिन नाव ज़्यादा बड़ी नहीं थी, और उसमें रामकुमार के अतिरिक्त एक ही चीज़ या प्राणी बैठ सकता था...

यदि रामकुमार भेड़िये को अपने साथ ले जाता, तो बकरी पीछे से पत्तागोभी खा जाती, और यदि वह पत्तागोभी को ले जाता, तो भेड़िया पीछे से बकरी को खा जाता...

अब आप लोग मुझे बताइए, किस क्रम में वे सभी लोग नदी पार कर सकते हैं...?

Now, the same riddle in English...

Special Note: If you succeed in solving this one, well and good; but in case, you don't, just leave a comment, and I will mail the answer to you...

During my childhood, this was one of the most commonly and frequently asked riddles...

Ramkumar was standing on one side of the river, and he had a wolf, a goat, and a bag of cabbage with him...

Ramkumar needed to take each of them across to the other side of the river...

Ramkumar had a boat, but in it, he could only fit one of them as well as himself...

If Ramkumar would have taken the wolf across first, the goat would have eaten the cabbage, and If he would have taken the cabbage across, the wolf would have eaten the goat...

Now, you guys tell me the correct order in which he could take them across...
