You are making your way through the Australian bush at night when you get a flat tyre. You start removing the nuts one by one to fill it with a can of 'Fix-a-flat' when your 4-year old kid kicks the bolts from the pile. It is dark and you can't see.

How can you find the nuts when it is dark?

how can you relect the headlight in the wing mirror when the light is in front and facing away from the mirror?

How can you assume the car has lights or if they work? In a true logic problem you can't make assumptions.

more situation, but what are wing mirrors, and are they detachable?

Problems with logic. What mirror are you using? what is a wing mirror. I don't have any mirrors on my car to remove. Also, you could remove one nut from each wheel, to secure the loose one. I wouldn't drive at any speed with this though. Also, you don't need to remove your tire from the vehicle to use fix-a flat, thus not loosing your nuts.

don't listen to all the negtive mish mash, I though it was good, I liked it!

I'm sorry, but I have to agree with the negative comments above. This is an interesting premise, but it should be a situation teaser, not a logic one.

you can also order a huge magnet from acme and find them

I agree. How can you reflect light from forward facing headlights with wing mirrors located half a car length behind them?

I also wasn't sure when the nuts from the car turned into bolts to be kicked if it was a trick question and the nuts were still sitting there unmoved.

Fix-a-Flat, the product, does not require the damaged tire to be removed from the Auto. The solution to this is fill the tire and proceed on your way.
