A Suspension BridgeLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Before airplanes were invented, a suspension bridge was being planned to span a violent river. There was no way a boat could carry the suspension cables across the violent water, and the bridge could not be built until the cables were in place. The builders decided to hold a contest to solve the problem. The contest was won by a young boy. Shortly thereafter the cables spanned the water.
What contest could have been used to solve this problem?
AnswerThe builders offered a prize to the first person to fly a kite from one side to the other. Once the kite string made the crossing, a heavier cord was tied to the string and it was pulled across. This process was repeated until the first cable crossed the river.
