Lateral Thinking - Vol. I Issue 6


Pin It

Dated: December 1st, 2010

Last time's winner was (Hold your breath!) fifth female in a row... Saudamini Singhania of Space Talk Architecture!

This time's puzzle has been suggested by Shobhit. It is slightly tougher than the previous ones. So let's see who gets it right first this time! ;-)


Help the Family To Cross the Bridge





INSTRUCTIONS:

  • It is night, so you must have a fire lamp.
  • Each person crosses the bridge at a different speed.
    [1-sec] [3-sec] [6-sec] [8-sec] [12-sec]
  • Only 1 or 2 persons can pass the bridge at a time.
  • A pair must walk together at the rate of the slower person.
  • The FIRE LAMP has oil enough for 30 seconds only !!!!

Please leave your answers in the comment box below.
For example:
1 and 3
1
1 and 6
1
and so on...

The correct answer will be published in the next issue, along with the name of the person who gets it right first.

1 and 3 cross
1 comes back
8 and 12 cross
3 comes back
1 and 6 cross
1 comes back
1 and 3 cross

Done.
By the way, our solution leaves 1 second, why don't you take that to cross over as well? ;)
