Brainteaser watch

1. (Original post by ~Bex~)
Basically, its a visual trick. If the rope is 1m long and has a dip of 0.5m, then it must be o.5m up and 0.5m down, the only way that can be is if the poles are right next to each other.
i was gonna guess 1m

That was quite logical, just didn't see the thread in time

I notice; Elle4 doesn't like logic
I do like logic, but to me it's not logical to have a diagram that throws you off.

Maybe you shouldn't rely on diagrams, it only seemed like a sketch.

Good Afternoon and have a nice day

they should have explained it cos looking at the diagram is very misleading.they should have said it was inaccurate
6. the whole point of a brainteaser is it makes you think.
If you drew an accurate diagram there would be no point in asking the question because you could just read it off the diagram
7. It would have been easy had there been no diagram.

9. if it was easy, what would be the point of doing it exactly?
10. i grudgingly agree...we got something like this in our math paper once
