|Caesar says 5 = 4
Caesar says 6 = 9
Caesar says 9 = 1
According to Caesar, 12 = ?
12 = 55
Spell the first number and extract the Roman numeral value of the second number.
fIVe = 4
Caesar never told me what 11 is equal to. Is it 55 or 50 and 5? I’ll ask next time I see him.
Which way is the bus below traveling?
To the left or to the right?
Can’t make up your mind?
Look carefully at the picture again.
Still don’t know?
Pre-schoolers all over the United States were shown this picture and asked the same question.
90% of pre-schooler’s gave this answer.
“The bus is traveling to the left”.
When asked, “Why do you think the bus is traveling to the left?”
“Because you can’t see the door to get on the bus.”
Shown above are four men buried up to their necks in the ground. They cannot move, so they can only look forward. Between A and B is a brick wall which cannot be seen through.
They all know that between them they are wearing four hats–two black and two white–but they do not know what color they are wearing. Each of them know where the other three men are buried.
In order to avoid being shot, one of them must call out to the executioner the color of their hat. If they get it wrong, everyone will be shot. They are not allowed to talk to each other and have 10 minutes to fathom it out.
After one minute, one of them calls out.
Question: Which one of them calls out? Why is he 100% certain of the color of his hat?
This is not a trick question. There are no outside influences nor other ways of communicating. They cannot move and are buried in a straight line; A & B can only see their respective sides of the wall, C can see B, and D can see B & C.
C calls out that he is wearing a black hat. Why is he 100% certain of the color of his hat?
After a while, C comes to the realization that he must answer.
This is because D can’t answer, and neither can A or B.
D can see C and B, but can’t determine his own hat color. B can’t see anyone and also can’t determine his own hat color. A is in the same situation as B, where he can’t see anyone and can’t determine his own hat color.
Since A, B, and D are silent, that leaves C. C knows he is wearing a black hat because if D saw that both B and C were wearing white hats, then he would have answered. But since D is silent, C knows that he must be wearing a black hat as he can see that B is wearing a white hat.
There are three boxes, exactly one of which has a car.
You can keep the car if you select the correct box.
On each box there is a statement, but only one of them is true.
The answer is Box two.
The aim is to work out which statement is correct by the process of elimination.
Similarly, if the car was in Box three, that would mean the statements on Box two and Box three were both correct.
However, if the car is in Box two, then the only statement which is true is the one written on Box three, The car is not in Box one.
