Doesn't Add UpSituation 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 were 11 people on the Lake Sam football team. The coach decided that they should all take ballet to make them more flexible. He said that by next Thursday, they must all find a partner with a little bit of ballet experience and meet the team at Miss Sara's Dance School. That Thursday, all 11 players showed up with their partners, however, there were only 20 people there in all. How is this possible?
HintThe twenty people do not include the coach and the teacher.
AnswerTheir was 1 girl on the team, and because she and another boy on the team had some ballet experience, they decided to go together. Thus, there would only be twenty people.
