Road TripMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
Melissa sat in the office of Detective Sing.
"I met a man yesterday," she said. "He's trying to raise funds for Kids with Cancer by driving virtually non-stop around Australia. He says he did it last year; drove to all the Australian Capitals in two and a half weeks. He says that he wants to try and break that record this year, and that if he does, the Australian Government will give a $10,000 donation to the charity. The only problem is that he needs funds to pay for the car, petrol and food. He's asked me for an initial donation of $2,000. What should I do? Should I give it to him?"
Detective Sing paused for a moment. "You could give him the money," he said. "But I don't think it will help the charity."
AnswerAustralia consists of six States and two Territories. However, much like America, one of these States lies off the mainland. Tasmania (and therefore its capital, Hobart) cannot be driven to. To get to Tasmania you must cross the Bass Strait (a large body of water).
Any claims to have done so must be fraudulent.
