Winning Numbers

Situation 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.

I have on a piece of paper the winning numbers in next week`s lotto jackpot. I am an avid gambler, yet I feel I have very little chance of winning. Why?



Answer

One has to choose six numbers from 60 for the lotto jackpot. My piece of paper contains all 60 numbers, so it must contain the winning numbers.
