A prison houses 100 inmates, one in each of 100 cells, guarded by a total of 100 warders. One evening, all the cells are locked and the keys left in the locks. As the first warder leaves, she turns every key, unlocking all the doors. The second warder ... every third key and so on. Finally the last warder turns the key in just the last cell. Which doors are left unlocked and why?
