We have been given 3 assignments this week, in addition to our Mandatory assignments. The first assignment this week is funny puzzles that can be solved alone or in groups. Share the puzzles with your friends and try to solve them togheter or alone, it is alot of fun! ☺ Here you have the questions and my solutions.
● 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?
There are four wheels on the car, 3 of the wheels still have the 4 bolts remaining. The solution is to take one bolt of each of the 3 wheels. He now have 3 bolts in each of the 4 wheels, and that makes him able to drive home where he can replace and fix the car further.
● Two Russians walk down a street in Moscow. One Russian is the father of the other Russian’s son. How are they related?
They are family, husband and wife.
● 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?
You only have to make one move! Take glass number 2 and pour the water into the empty glass number 5, and put the empty glass back to its original place. There will now be no empty glasses or full glasses standing next to one another.
I made this picture to illustrate how it works.
