    A great job from all other ILites...

    Dear Malathy,

    Thanks for the announcement. It was real fun participating in the Puzzle thread...Gayarthri, I must admit, your spirit and enthusiasm for this thread and your intelligence (by giving correct solutions) , all put together, was a close competition for me and I had to literally be on guard looking for new puzzle and solving/posting answers before yours...You did a great job...hope you would win the January Puzzle thread this time.

    It was a good try from all other participants too.

    Malathy, it was a good idea to start a games thread like this, which was really very interesting and entertaining....More than the prize, it was the fun that I had, along with many other ILites in this thread that really mattered. I can see lots of other games following suite...This puzzle games thread was definitely a trend-setter in our website.

    Priyum also requires a special mention and appreciation for her patience and meticulous care taken in maintaining the score board. Great work priyum and hats off to you for that.

    Love,
    Preethi

    PUZZ - 3 ***(STAR)

    Here is a short and sweet to tease you sorry your brain!!!

    Puzz
    1* A snail is at the bottom of a 20 meters deep pit. Every day the snail climbs 5 meters upwards, but at night it slides 4 meters back downwards.

    The Question: How many days does it take before the snail reaches the top of the pit?

    2 * Hans is standing behind Gerrie and at the same time Gerrie is standing behind Hans.

    The Question: How is this possible?

    3* The poor have it,
    the rich want it,
    but if you eat it you will die.

    The Question: What is this?

    my try

    Hi Nalini,

    here r my answers. let me know right or wrong.........

    ans. 1) 16 days

    as snail moves 5 inch in day but slips 4 inch in night that means it will cover distance of 1 mile per day.

    15 miles in 15 days but on 16th day it will cover 5 inches and it will fall on night.But as we r talking abt days so 16 days shd b the answer.

    ---------------------
    ans. 2) my guess is they r standing in front of mirror.

    I m thinking abt 3rd one still no guess but I m trying.

    let me publish the answer for PUZZ 1:
    Solution to: Climbing Snail
    On the first day, the snail reaches a height of 5 meters and slides down 4 meters at night, and thus ends at a height of 1 meter.
    On the second day, he reaches 6 meters, but slides back to 2 meters.
    On the third day, he reaches 7 meters, but slides back to 3 meters.


    On the fifteenth day, he reaches 19 meters, but slides back to 15 meters.
    On the sixteenth day, he reaches 20 meters, so now he is at the top of the pit!
    Conclusion: The snail reaches the top of the pit on the 16th day!...
