## Puzzling Prattle

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

 Puzzle ID: #49391 Fun: (2.84) Difficulty: (2.62) Category: Logic Submitted By: D_Dragon

Two children, who were all tangled up in their reckoning of the days of the week, paused on their way to school to straighten matters out. "When the day after tomorrow is yesterday," said Priscilla, "then 'today' will be as far from Sunday as that day was which was 'today' when the day before yesterday was tomorrow!"
On which day of the week did this puzzling prattle occur?

 manofwords Apr 03, 2012 how did you get the answer Babe Apr 28, 2012 Where were their parents to let them out to go??? Did not even try to work this one out. It was not my thing!!! crazy10man Apr 28, 2012 Interesting. I originally came up with Sunday, but thought that couldn't be right because kids would only be going to school M-F. Other than that it makes sense. HABS2933 Apr 28, 2012 Like Crazy, I managed to come up with Sunday but dismissed it since the puzzle said they were on their way to school. dangerouspie101 Apr 28, 2012 This one was fun! I could not get it but it was fun! bradon182001 Apr 28, 2012 Wow! I think I ended up with the wrong answer, but had fun doing it. Thanks for posting! auntiesis Apr 28, 2012 Way too complicated for me. DarylK Apr 28, 2012 I got Thursday. If you put it in a sequence such as: Th - Fri - Sat - Sun - Mon - Tue - Wed with Sunday in the middle as "'TD' will be as far from Sunday as the day which was 'TD' when the day before YD was TM!" My sequences: From the first: TD TM YD From the scnd: TM YD TD Now when I put the above variables in the above calender, the two "TDs" seem to be fitted on Thursday and Wednesday, which is why I choose Thursday because Wednesday is associated with "which was 'today'" as compared with Thursday which is "'Today' WILL be far from Sunday..." Can someone please msg me back in regard to my mistakes in my deduction? halboy99 Apr 28, 2012 heres my Logic: Case I. today is day 0 tomorow is day +1 Day after tomorrow is day +2 Day after tom will be yesterday on +3 Case II today is day 0 yesterday is day -1 day before yesterday was day -2 day before yesterday was tomorrow -3 Both cases make day 0 the same therefore the day is set by the question as SUNDAY. Had it been asked with another base day the answer would have been that day. ROCStorm Apr 28, 2012 I'll just put these kids into The Tardis and let tomorrow's yesterday be next week. juleusjohn Oct 05, 2013 Somebody please, for the love of god, please explain this to me, English isn't my native language and the sentence pattern is confusing me beyond my limits. Dimah Apr 28, 2015 I got Tuesday. it is too complex as no one will think of students going to school on sunday grafixdude Apr 28, 2015 Ya, nah... the only constant here is Sunday. So Sunday has to be the chosen day. No other way to do this. the "on the way to school" was just to throw the solver off the trail. theriddler Apr 29, 2015 I got Sunday so I assumed they were on their way to Sunday School.
