Mental Floss 102





The answer to last week’s challenge is Q: A woman has 7 children, half of them are boys. How is this possible?

A: She has all boys so the other half are boys too.

This week’s thinking challenge is …

Q: There are 20 people in an empty, square room. Each person has full sight of the entire room and everyone in it without turning his head or body, or moving in any way. Where can you place an apple so that all but one person can see it?

The answer along with a new thinking challenge, next week.

Enjoy the weekend!
