My RadioSituation 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.
Last week whilst driving home from work I was listening to my favourite radio station, enjoying the music.
Suddenly, the radio went off for one minute and came back on again.
I did not touch the radio controls. There was nothing wrong with the radio or my car; nor was there any problems with the radio station and its program transmission. Most people listening to the same radio station did not experience any loss of reception.
Why did the radio suddenly go off for a minute and then come back on again?
AnswerI entered a tunnel on the road that passed through a mountain. Because it took me one minute to drive through the tunnel, the radio reception was temporarily interrupted.
