Forgery....Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
A man builds a machine which he feeds coloured paper. Out of the other side comes $100 notes. He sold them to someone. Experts cannot tell them from real ones. How does he do it and why does he sell the machine instead of using it himself?
HintThe man sold the machine to a crook.
The crook will not be rich.
AnswerIt was a confidence trickster (con man) who sold the machine. He claimed to the crook that it will generate perfect forgeries. He demonstrates it by feeding it green paper. But this green paper is actually genuine $100 notes covered in thick green coloring. The machine simply removes the green coloring.
