A girl was lying on her bed on her right ear. She picked up a flower and made it level with her nose. First she looked at it with her right eye only (and left eye closed), and then she looked at it with her left eye only (with right eye closed). She noticed that when she closed one eye the flower looked closer to the bed than when she closed the other eye. Which eye did she close to make the flower look closer to the bed?


Answer

She closed her right eye. Since her left eye was further away from the bed, it would see the flower from a higher angle, making the flower appear to be lower and therefore closer to the bed.
