KIDS in Hong Kong can solve this logic puzzle in just 20 seconds, but it’s got lots of adults dazed and confused. Can you figure it out?
The puzzle comes from a Hong Kong elementary school admission test for six-year-olds going into first-grade.
It contains a simple drawing of a parking lot with a car parked in one of the many bays available.
The bay number the car is in is unable to be seen (see above) and the question asked above the drawing is: “What is the number of the parking space containing the car?”
The puzzle can be found at Puzzlersworld.com and has made world headlines as more and more people try to solve it.
