Week2 has begun…

This week we got practical and research assignments. As I usually approach situations, I will start with the easiest of them. The puzzle and fun part!! So, we were given these situations wherein we have to find solutions to its problems. I have always been interested in these kind of trick questions which I always prefer than the questions asked by my english or history teacher. 🙂

Well, here are the situations:

  • A man is replacing a wheel on his car, when he accidentally drops the four nuts used to hold the wheel on the car. They fall into a deep drain, irretrievably lost. A passing girl offers him a solution that enables him to drive home. What is it?

Given:  A man with a car but no tire.

A woman with an idea

Problem: HOw can girl help man drive home?

Solutions: a) Girl has car and lets man drive. 

b) Girl is a car repairman/woman who drove by and has tools in her car.

c) Girl has mobile phone and called car repairshop. 🙂

d) The girl is his wife and after calling him stupid :), he lets him drive home.

  • Two Russians walk down a street in Moscow. One Russian is the father of the other Russian’s son. How are they related? Could it be that they are a couple and has a son?
  • What occurs once in June, once in July and twice in August? The letter U
  • Six drinking glasses stand in a row, with the first three full of water and the next three empty. By handling and moving only one glass at a time, how can you arrange the six glasses so that no full glass stands next to another full glass, and no empty glass stands next to another empty glass? What is the minimum number of moves to solve this puzzle? One move, just pour the second full glass to the second empty glass.

And there…so off to research now!
