I agree with gooblah. The answer wasn't technically correct.

I took it as a play on words. It's obviously not going to be in alphabetical order due to moving one word. Great teaser.

Nice one!!

I was WAY off base on this one... I guess that's why these shouldn't be done an hour after you get out of bed. ~GOOD ONE~
anaearl
Nov 11, 2004

I agree with TurdFerguson. And changing the position of one word would change all the positions.

wouldn't personally call a word a 'sequence' but hey, that's why it's a teaser.

Didn't see that one coming. Very good.
spoonfulofsugar
Nov 19, 2005

I agree w/a couple of the others - just because the first letters spelled alphabet, that doesn't constitute and "alphabetical sequence" - I thought it was confusing also.

Good teaser. I got it after reading a few times
mischievousmiss
Nov 19, 2005

That was a really good one. Had someone else look at it and still had to look.

Nov 19, 2005

that was a nice play on words, sometimes you can't take these literally
shawneeo*us*
Nov 19, 2005

Okay, Okay, good job! You know what? I think if you had said simply "change the position of one word to make it ALPHABETICAL...", then it would be perfect; but, that's just me. I know it's very, very hard to think up these, and I truly respect people for doing it! I've noticed a lot of controversy, much of it from me, lately about the correctness of a teaser. I know this is a family site, and I love it. I'm going to post a general topic today, for anyone interested, about this issue because there seems to be at least two camps of thught on this and I think it's an imporant topic; but ALL IN THE SPIRIT OF FUN!

that was a bit hard for a pea brian such as mine but it was still very cool!!
kimberlykayAus*
Nov 19, 2005

I see your point shawneeo, but the word was alphabet and not alphabetical. So, I guess he would then have to add a few more words as well. Right? I need more coffee.

Nov 21, 2005

this was good but wasnt worded right but i dont wanna sound like some old grumpy man so it was a great teaser n thanx 4 the fuun it was sweet
jacstop*
Nov 21, 2005

Indeed you intended to be vague in your directions to mask the relative facility in which a person would solve your braingle.
Neat and Clever
For that I say, Well done

"Change the position of just one of *the words below* so that all the words are in an alphabetical sequence:"

Below the words.

X) I moved below to the beginning, making the "the words below" in alphabetical sequence.
BPKANERVAAus**
Jul 17, 2006

I thought the answer was any of them because no matter how you placed them they would always be in an alphabetical sequence Good one though
yergAus*
Mar 24, 2007

cool
cascada
Jun 21, 2008

I agree with some others that have said that really isn't the correct answer. What you asked is impossible, maybe if you asked but them in Alphabet Sequence, that would be right

Nov 19, 2008

this is a great one. I understood and agree with your answer. Hard for me and good for you!
emu77alu02us*
Nov 19, 2008

If they all spelled "alphabetical" instead of "alphabet" it would make a little more sense. Or maybe I'm just splitting hairs.
doeheadAus*
Nov 19, 2008

The writer must have failed English. It is written completely wrong.Therefore there is no possible right answer.
ariel777*
Nov 19, 2008

Almost good ...Need to add aarvark and lion to the list to get "alphabetical" otherwise it's just in "alphabet" sequence
bradon182001*us*
Nov 19, 2008

Cute. Even though i knew it was a trick, I didn't get it. Thanks for posting.
auntiesisAus*
Nov 19, 2008

I got this one easily by just looking at the first letters and it jumped right out at me. Fun! Sorry so many found fault with it. I liked it.
malogaleeAus*
Nov 19, 2008

i thought it was stupid...making the first letters spell out "alphabet" is not putting it in alphabetical sequence...

I thought the same as the post on June 25th, 2006.
Babe*
Nov 19, 2011

I understand what everyone is saying and they are correct. You worded what you wanted wrong, BUT I figured out the word 'alphabet' so thought it was what you meant. It is most confusing though
gaylewolfAus*
Nov 19, 2011

I LOVED it! Clever teaser - and to all you complaining folks, this WAS in the trick category! Have a great weekend, friends! wink:
HABS2933Aca*
Nov 19, 2011

I agree Gayle, but you know some people do nothing but complain (take ofr instance one of the older comments where the guy admists he "dises" every riddle he has seen. These people complain every time they comment "too easy" "too hard" "it was a trick" and are never happy.
I honestly thin, that instead of a point requirement to be allowed to do something on here, they should make a rule that you can't comment on a quiz or teaser until you yourself have had at least 3 approved. Then these folks would see it isn't as easy to do as they apparently think it is.
**END OF RANT**
PS - I liked it.
gaylewolfAus*
Nov 19, 2011

BRAVO, HABS! Good idea! Amen!
auntiesisAus*
Nov 19, 2011

Hi K & G , have a great week-end. Trick question, easy answer.
rob77*ca*
Nov 19, 2011

Got the right answer, but for the wrong reason. Thought the sequence was meant to be Alpha, Beta...
elentirAus*
Nov 21, 2011

I liked this one.

To everyone knocking on the sequence part - a sequence is simply a logical order. The logic this order was following was the word 'alphabet' and, since it is made of letters, it is alphabetical in nature as opposed to numerical or otherwise.
jaycr*us*
Nov 19, 2014

I liked it and agree with HABS' comment.
raisin99*
Nov 19, 2014

I think some of you overanalyze; this is a puzzle, not a grammar test! It just took a little thinking to get it. These puzzles are supposed to promote thinking

For anyone who saw " Kung Fu Panda " ......YHERE IS NOW A LEVEJ ZERU " its this teaser. hazy, misleading instructions, and an answer , that defies belief (in that it is more lame than the instructions.
