**Answer :He should open Door to Room 1**

__Explanation :__

Lady cannot be in room 2 since its sign says A tiger is in this room which will contradict the condition fo the sign being true of the room where the lady is.

So now the lady can be in room 1 or room 3

Assume the lady is in Room 1.

Then:

Room 1: A tiger is in room 2 - This is true

Room 2: A tiger is in this room - This becomes true

Room 3 : A tiger is in room 1 - This is False

So our assumption will meet all the conditions required if the lady is in room 1

Now lets assume the lady is in Room 3.

Then:

Room 1: A tiger is in room 2 - This is true

Room 2: A tiger is in this room - This is true

Room 3 : A tiger is in room 1 - This is true

This assumption of ours will not meet the conditions in the question.

Hence lady cannot be in room 3.

Therefore Lady has to be behind the door in room 1.

and hence the prisoner should open Door to Room 1.
