The Elevator

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.

Every day a man leaves his apartment on the 46th floor and rides the elevator down to the first floor to go to work. Every evening at about 6:00pm he gets in the elevator, takes it to the 38th floor, gets out and walks up the stairs for the remaining eight floors until he reaches the 46th floor, and his apartment. Why does he take the stairs instead of the elevator for the last eight floors?


Answer

He is small and can`t reach the numbers on the elevator past 38.
