There’s (yet) another brain teaser sweeping the Internet, but this one — thought to be from an old children’s magazine — is proving almost impossible to work out.
Here’s the image you’re given:
Now you just need to answer these “simple” questions:
- How many tourists are staying at the camp?
- When did they arrive: today or a few days ago?
- How did they get to the camp?
- How far away is the closest town?
- Where is the wind blowing from: north or south?
- What time of day is it?
- Where did Alex go?
- Who was on duty yesterday?
- What day is it today?
Scroll down for answers after you’re done beating your brain.
Okay, here you go:
- There are four spoons on the blanket and four names on the list so there are four happy campers.
- A spider’s web has appeared between the tent and the tree so they arrived a few days ago.
- You can see oars so they must’ve arrive by boat.
- The wandering chicken suggests a village is nearby (vague, we know).
- Apparently, branches on the southern side of trees are generally longer (if you’re in the northern hemisphere), so from the flag you know the wind is blowing north.
- See above and use the shadows to work out that it’s morning.
- Alex is catching butterflies — you can see his net behind the tent.
- It’s Colin (he’s looking in a backpack marked “C”); Alex is catching butterflies, James is taking pictures and Peter must have been on duty yesterday.
- It’s August 8th, as Peter is on duty and apparently everyone knows watermelons ripen in August.
