The SignSituation 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 man and his wife were in their car. The man saw a sign. Without either of them saying a word, he drew a gun and shot his wife dead. Why?
HintThe sign was in the car and the car was stationary.
He shot her because he learned that his wife had been having an affair.
AnswerThe car was stationary. The man's wife was deaf and mute. She used sign language to tell her husband she was having an affair and was leaving him.
