People on a BusSituation 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 young man gets on a bus, carrying a backpack, reading a book and chewing gum. Then a woman gets on. She hands him a piece of paper, and he quickly writes something on it. She gets off at the next stop and throws it away. What happened?
HintHe thought she wanted something from him. She thought he was asking her something.
AnswerShe is deaf, and when he chewed his gum it looked like he was trying to talk to her. She handed him paper to write it down. Little did she know that he was a soap opera star. He thought she wanted his autograph and he gave it to her, but it meant nothing to her so she threw it away.
