The Restroom ProblemSituation 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.
There once was a visitor from another country who did not understand English. He visited the United States and managed to hire a translator. One day, he needed to go to the restroom. He asked his translator, "How do I know which door to go in?" The translator laughed and said, "Go into the door that has fewer letters." He followed his advice and went inside the door with fewer letters but found himself in a room with screaming women. What happened?
AnswerHe looked at the doors marked "Gentlemen" and "Ladies." Since "Ladies" has fewer letters, he went inside that room.
