    Puzzle of the Week - 27th Nov to 3rd Dec 2006

    Hi Shakila,

    Good to note u liked the puzzle.

    I am posting the message received from IndusLadies Team

    Weekly Puzzle
    <HR align=center width="100%" color=white noShade SIZE=1>
    Hi Priyum,

    Just saw your puzzle thread. Very interesting idea. Why don't you do a weekly puzzle? By doing it weekly, you will find more participation.

    You post a new puzzle (lets say every Saturday) and you ask people to private message you with the answer. You provide a end date and time as well. Once the time is up, you announce the winner and then post the next week's puzzle. Simple execution but can keep member interest well.

    What do you think?

    Induslady

    So friends,

    Instead of Saturday, I will post a puzzle on Mondays.... Hope there will be lot of participation.... ( lets make it a puzzle a week.... so answers by Sunday should be fine), so as suggested by the IL Team, u may PM me...

    To begin with, a very easy puzzle for the week..... ( so that i find more and more people answering.... that is an encouragement for me pa)


    Puzzle - 2

    Six drinking glasses stand in a row, with the first three full of water and the next three empty. By handling and moving only one glass at a time, how can you arrange the six glasses so that no full glass stands next to another full glass, and no empty glass stands next to another empty glass. What is the minimum number of moves to solve this puzzle.
