Test Your Imagination

I’m bored, so I’m gonna share with you 3 riddles my Organizational Behavior teacher gave us to test our imagination.

1) A boy and his father have a car accident. The father dies, while the boy is rushed to the hospital and has to undergo an operation. The surgeon says: “I can’t operate on this person, he’s my son�. How do you explain this, excluding the gay possibility?

2) There are 3 lamps in a closed room. The 3 three switches are outside the room and the door is closed. How do you know which switch is for which lamp, if you’re allowed to open the door and enter the room only once?

3) There are two words (a) and (b) in the photo attached. What are they?

Some of them are very easy, so I won’t give the answers until someone guesses them correctly.

1. Correct
2. Wrong
3. Correct

Very good Ron. You didn't leave a chance for others. [:D][:D][:D]

Riddle #1 is to show if a person is sexist or not.

Riddle #3 is to test your perception. We are used to reading black letters on white background. But when we see white letters on black background, it takes a little more time to read.

Riddle #2: The door has to be closed always. It's a closed room. Think about it, it's the hardest one by the way! [;)]

A little stimuli for the aftrenoon. THANKS!

By the way how come your Ebay store has no parts????
You're welcomed...

I don't have an Ebay store. I sell parts occasionally not regularly. Every 2-3 weeks and mainly specialized with the SL R129.

Don't go into the room. You said you can only open it AND go in once. Open the door, and look in.

Nope.
The door is closed at all times, except the moment when you want to enter the room. Also, nobody said that the switches are exactly next to the door on the oustide.
