FootnotesLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
A, who knows only French, publishes an article in an English magazine. At the end of the article are the following 3 footnotes:
1. I thank my friend B for translating the above article into English so that it could be published in this magazine.
2. I thank my friend B for translating the above footnote.
3. I thank my friend B for translating the above footnote.
Why are there only 3 footnotes when logically, A will have to go on forever to be able to thank B properly???
AnswerWhen B translates footnote 2 to English, A just copies it as it is in English , thereby eliminating the need for footnote 3 to be translated. A therefore doesn't have to thank B anymore!!!
