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.

A truck driver reported to his office that his truck had broken down. A tow truck was sent out to tow the disabled truck. When they arrived, the truck that had broken down was towing the tow truck. Why?


It`d broken down because its brakes had completely failed. The truck driver drove back towing the recovery vehicle. When he needed to slow, he signalled with his hand and the recovery truck driver applied his brakes,thereby slowing both vehicles.
