Punished For Good Behavior?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.
A woman tells her three sons to do something. Only one son obeys. The woman says something to him and he storms away and sulks. What's happening?
HintThe son isn't upset because he got in trouble. He is simply rather competitive.
AnswerThe family is playing a game of Simon Says. The one son acted when his mom didn't say "Simon says," and he got angry when his mom told him he's out.
