Application DilemmaLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Two men applied for a job. The first man, John Smith, stated in his application that he had 10 years of experience, that he graduated in 1959 from John F. Kennedy High School, and had graduated from a four year college with top grades, and had several references.
The second man, Tom Jones stated he had 3 years of experience, and had dropped out of high school. He had only one reference.
The manager shocked everyone, and hired Tom Jones. Why?
HintIt had nothing to do with family ties, bribing, or prejudice.
AnswerJohn Smith had claimed he had graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in 1959. John F. Kennedy wasn't elected until 1960, and wasn't assassinated until 1963. Before then high schools weren't named for him. His application was fake.
