Each Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.
I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.
This week’s brain teaser: A man wants to get into a private club that requires a password to enter. Listening by the door, he hears the doorman say to someone who approaches, “Twelve” and the person reply, “Six”. A few moments later another person approaches and the doorman says, “Six” and this individual replies, “Three”. Thinking he had cracked the code, when the doorman says, “Ten” he confidently replies, “Five”.
Why was he turned away? What would be the correct response?
