Honks the HornSituation 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.
A man leaves a motel room, goes into his car, honks the horn, and returns. Why?
AnswerIt is the middle of the night. The man goes outside to get something from his car, but forgets which room he is in. His wife is deaf so he honks his car horn, waking everyone up in the hotel. All the other residents, who aren't deaf, wake up and turn on their lights. The man returns to the room with the light remaining off.
