Thief in the Apartment
Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
The keeper of an apartment has reasons to believe that a thief is lurking around in his apartment. He decides to invite a detective over to his apartment for further investigation on the thief. The detective then is one day pondering in his room when a knock on the door was heard. A man walked in and said "Oops, I thought this was my room, sorry," and left. The detective immediately arrested the man. Why?
Why would anyone knock on their own door?

|Er... I interpreted the word "room" as meaning "room within the apartment" instead of "the apartment itself."|
The detective would recognize the proper resident, having been hired by him. Presumably, the detective would have met any other proper residents of the apartment as well.
So when the detective saw a stranger inside the department, he knew right away that the stranger was an intruder, regardless of which room he's in.
Maybe it should say, "pondering in the apartment..." and "Oops, I thought this was my apartment..."
Or am I not understanding something?
