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.
Clever Chris had a contest in his school. His gym teacher said who ever could make the treadmill go the fastest without falling would win a hundred dollars. Now, Chris wasn't very athletic, but he found a way to win the money anyways. What did he do?

XD I almost got it wrong because it seemed too easy. It SHOULD be in trick.

If it was an electric treadmill, the teacher would have never phrased the bet in that manner. He would have said, "Whoever can stay on the treadmill on the highest setting..." The wording of the bet implies that the treadmill is self-powered.

I agree with Valannin, I was picturing a mechanical treadmill. So I imagined Chris built some sort of motorized rotating contraption to put traction against the treadmill belt automatically. Or he launched the treadmill with a giant catapult. That would surely make the treadmill "go the fastest."

Posted by sofa99806/12/14's kinda's obvious when you say "who can make the treadmill go the fastest" instead of "who can run fastest on the treadmill"

He just put the treadmill on the fastest setting. The teacher said, "whoever can get the treadmill the fastest without falling wins." She never said that anyone HAD to go ON the treadmill. :D
