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.

You are reading a book and you come across the word minute. You know instantly that the word is minute (small) and not minute (60 seconds). You did not conclude this based on the words before or after it, its placement in the sentence, or the title of the book. What the book is about is irrelevant. The book is written in English, and the answer is NOT that the print was small.

So, how did you know the word was minute (small) and not minute (60 seconds)?
