Fast Clock, Slow ClockSituation 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.
At a certain time of day, every day, my clock appears to be an hour fast. At another time of day, it appears to be an hour slow. It is neither fast nor slow. What's wrong with it?
AnswerThe LCD light on the lower left of the hour digit is broken, so that the hour number 6 appears to be a 5, and 8 appears to be a 9. During hours 2, 10, and 12, it will be clear that the clock is broken.
