Difficulty:** (1.52)

There are 10 lit candles on a table. A strong breeze comes and extinguishes 2 of the candles. When you come back later, you see that 1 more has been blown out.To make sure no more flames go out, you shut the window. Assuming the wind doesn't extinguish any more candles and you don't relight the extinguished candles, how many candles do you have left in the end?

I said 10, 3 unlit and 7 lit. I guess it depends on how long you leave them burning. I understood the question to be how many were left when you shut the window. But that was not specified, so I guess I should not have assumed it. Good one.
