Ignorance to AnswerSituation 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.
A woman sits on her couch as the doorbell rings. However, the woman doesn't answer. She is completely aware of the ringing, she has an ability to get it, and is not waiting for another person to respond. She doesn't dislike this person. In fact she cherishes them.
What is the situation?
HintThe person is someone in her family.
The person is able to get in, so she is not ignoring them, technically.
AnswerThe woman's young son is playing with the doorbell, with the front door swung open.
