      2. On a shelf in the library, there is a 3 book set of almanacs labeled volume 1, volume 2 and volume 3.

    • Answers to test your logic 3

      Well i guess only you Miss Spoon would be interested in knowing the answers. I have to say, that you've made a good attempt at these questions. Maybe you'll do better next time

      Well here are the answers

      1. twenty-eight days.....the snail averages 1 foot each day, so after 27 days he has reached 27 feet. On the 28th day he crawls up 3 feet during the day, but since he is now at 30 feet and out of the well he no longer slips back 2 feet.

      2. 3 inches.....you must visualize that when the books are on the shelf with the binders facing you that the right side of volume 1 is where page 1 is and the left side of volume 3 is the last page of volume 3. This being the case, the worm only eats through the cover of volume 1 ( 1/4 inch ), all of volume 2 ( 2 1/2 inches ), and only the cover of volume 3 ( 1/4 inch ) for a total of 3 inches.

      3. Although it seems there are four people, there are only 3. They encompass 3 generations...a grandfather, his son ( who is also a father), and his son. Thus there are 2 fathers and 2 sons, but only 3 people to split the money!

      4. No, it crawls halfway around the circle, but halfway back is only 1/4 of the return trip ( half of a half ).

      5. Daylight savings time when the clocks are turned forward one hour. Of course, this only takes place where daylight savings time is observed.
