A girl was lying on her bed on her right ear. She picked up a flower and made it level with her nose. First she looked at it with her right eye only (and left eye closed), and then she looked at it with her left eye only (with right eye closed). She noticed that when she closed one eye the flower looked closer to the bed than when she closed the other eye. Which eye did she close to make the flower look closer to the bed?

Interesting. It's easy enough to step through the process, but the trick is in the last sentence - which eye did she have to CLOSE. It's natural to think of which eye was open to make the flower look closer to the bed. The correct answer is the opposite of that.
