A Boy and His DucksLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
A boy, walking home some ducks, was asked how many he had. He replied,
"When in line, there are two ducks ahead of a duck, two ducks behind a duck, and one duck in the middle." How many ducks had he?
HintDucks like to swim. Not a good hint you say? Well I guess you are right about that. OK, pay attention to the commas. Each statement between commas should be considered separately. And do not read it as "at least" two ducks ahead of "at least" one duck, etc. It has all the words it needs already in it.
AnswerThere are three ducks. Two in front of the last duck. Two behind the first duck. And one duck in the middle with a duck in front and behind it.
