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.

Gary, a highly skilled auto mechanic, climbed under the chassis of Shawn's midnight-blue Pontiac GTO. Ten minutes later he climbed out from under the car. Gary did not inspect or repair the automobile, nor did he offer professional advice to the car's owner. In fact, Shawn knew full well that Gary had never touched the vehicle. Immediately afterwards, as a result of what had just occurred, Shawn unhesitatingly paid Gary five hundred dollars. Why would he do this?
