Where's the Banana?Science brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
Skid Mark felt like doing a hard challenge one day. Question Mark was very happy to give him a challenge. He took a banana, a sheet of white paper, a red ball, and a few random things and put them all in a room where only red light could be seen. He found the ball and the paper no problem. Why couldn't he find the banana as easily?
HintWhat color is a banana?
What color was the light?
AnswerHe could not find the banana easily because a banana reflects yellow light and the yellow light goes into your eye. Since there is no yellow light, the banana looked black. The red ball and the paper were easy to find because they both reflect red light and therefore would look red. Skid Mark was really confused because he thought the banana would still be yellow.
