The Clumsy Driver.

Situation 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.

One day, Charlie was driving his car when he got a flat tire. While changing the tire, he accidentally dropped all four lug nuts from the tire through a sewer grate in the road. After banging his head several times on the roof of his car for being so careless, he attached his spare tire the only way he knew how and drove to the nearest service station to repair his flat and replace the lost lug nuts. How did he attach the spare tire?


He removed one lug nut from each of his good tires leaving three lug nuts on each tire, including the spare. More than enough to get to the repair station.
