Many 'Situation Puzzles' are not designed to be answered by themselves. The idea is for one person to know the answer and other people in a group to try and guess it using yes or no questions. The first person to get the answer is the winner.
A woman and her daughter go to Europe for vacation. They check in at the hotel, register, and then go into separate rooms to sleep. The mother sleeps late, and when she wakes she goes to her daughter's room to wake her up. She knocks, and nobody answers. She turns the knob, and to her surprise it is unlocked. She goes inside and finds nobody. She notices the room is very clean, though. She goes downstairs, glances at the registry, and to her shock, her daughter's name is nowhere to be seen! When she asks the clerk about her daughter, the clerk says she (the mother) did not come in with any other person!

What happened to her daughter?

Answer:

The daughter got the bubonic plague and died. When the morning maid went into her room in the morning, she noticed that she had died of the bubonic plague. Hotel faculty took her body and burned it. The maid tidied up her room. The hotel pretended there never had been any daughter, because if it was discovered that there were bubonic plague germs in the hotel, they would have to shut down.
