The answer to last week’s challenge is Q: Six drinking glasses stand in a row, alternating between full and empty. By handling only one glass, what can you do to end up with the first three glasses full and the second three empty?
A: Pick up the full glass in the 5th position, pour it into the second glass then place it back in the 5th position.
This week’s lateral thinking challenge is.
Q: Three spiders named Mr Eight, Mr. Nine & Mr Ten are crawling on an activity board in a Government Department. One spider has 8 legs, one has 9 and the other has 10. “I think it’s interesting..” says Mr Ten, “..that none of us have the same number of legs as our names would suggest.” “Who the heck cares?” replies the spider with 9 legs. How many legs does Mr Nine have ?
