Hire electrician move switch from basement to the room on ground floor. The handle to flush the toilet is probably located in the kitchen of this house.

According to a friend of mine, this was a question from a MENSA test: There is a switchplate with three (3) switches in the basement of a house. Up the stairs in a room on the ground floor is a light bulb. The new owner of the house knows that the light bulb is controlled by one of the three switches and is in the basement. With only one trip up the stairs, how can the new owner determine which switch controls the light bulb?
