Situation 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.

After going through extensive medical studies, a man is told he is going to die within three years. He is also told that there can be an operation organized for him in a year; but if he goes through with the operation, he will die then and there.

The man spends half a year dwelling on the situation and discussing it with his family.

Finally, he makes his decision.

After another six months, he goes through with the operation and dies.
