What's the Time?Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
Checkers, the smartest dog in the world, was outside playing his favorite game, barking at birds, one afternoon. At 3:24 he all of a sudden ran inside the house to get some water. As he entered the house, he looked at the big digital clock in the kitchen which said 3:25. He thought it was strange that the clock was wrong, but since he doesn't have thumbs, he figured that one of his people could set it later.
How did he know that the clock was wrong?
AnswerSince Checkers thought it was strange that the clock was wrong, he couldn't have known that it was wrong already. What he did know, however, was that the clock was a 24 hour clock and therefore should have shown the hour as 15 since it was in the afternoon.
