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.

They could have just touched their face and see if any soot is on their hand. Cool teaser, though.

This is an old teaser, but I love it! Shouldn't it be logic? Actually, never mind, situation works for me.
