Mental Floss 225


The answer to last week’s challenge is, Q: When I was walking across a bridge, I saw a boat crowded with people. But there wasn’t a single person on the boat. How could this be?

A: Everyone on the boat was married!

This week’s challenge is:

Q: Sam, Alex, Charlie, and Jordan are related. One of them is the opposite gender from the other three. Here are some facts: 1. Charlie’s only son is either Sam or Alex. 2. Jordan’s sister is either Alex or Charlie.   3. Jordan is either Sam’s brother or Sam’s only daughter.  Who is the opposite gender from the other three?

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.

Have an excellent weekend!

    All the people on the boat were married?
    Of course, there may be better answers…

    A deBono man like yourself Phil knows well that there are always better answers to be found – but that one is a pretty good one. Have a Great Christmas!
