Uncle's FortuneLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Shadow slipped on the wet grass as he crossed the lawn to meet Anton Smith on the front porch. When Anton unlocked the front door, Shadow went to the kitchen to wash the grass and mud from his hands. He turned on the hot water tap and immediately received a stream of hot water. After washing he met Anton in the study. Anton crossed the room and excitedly opened the sealed envelope containing the safe's combination. He opened the safe and read the will. It read that as long as his deceased uncle's wishes were complied with, Anton would be entitled to the fortune. "As you know", said Shadow, "your uncle requested that nobody be allowed to enter this house until they do so with me three days after his death. Since you have the only key, I'm afraid you just lost your uncle's fortune". Why?
AnswerAnton had been in the house. When Shadow turned on the hot water tap, he immediately received a jet of hot water. It would take a short time for the water from the water heater to reach the faucet if the tap has not been recently used.
