This camping puzzle has been making waves online, challenging people to test their aptitude, observation, logic, and reasoning skills.
Taken from an old children’s magazine, it seems adults are finding it quite tricky.
Are you up for the challenge?
Take a good look at the camping picture below, grab a pen and paper, and answer the questions without peeking at the answers.
Here are the camping quiz questions:
How many tourists are staying at the camp?
Did the tourists arrive today or a couple of days ago?
How did the tourists get to the campsite?
How far away is the closest town from the camp?
Which direction does the wind blow from: north or south?
What time of day is it?
Where did Alex go?
Who was on duty yesterday? (Give their name)
What day is it today?
Now, here are the answers:
Four tourists are staying at the camp, indicated by the names on the duty list and four sets of cutlery on the picnic blanket.
They arrived a few days ago, evidenced by a spider web between their tent and a tree.
The oars next to the tree imply that they got there by boat.
The chicken walking around suggests the closest village isn’t too far.
The wind is blowing from the south, indicated by the flag and the longer branches on the southern side of the trees.
It’s morning, determined by the position of the shadows.
Alex is catching butterflies, indicated by the scoop net behind the tent.
Yesterday, Colin was on duty (searching in his backpack with the letter “C”), today Peter is on duty, and James is capturing photographs.
It’s August 8th, as Peter is on duty, and there is a watermelon on the ground (watermelons ripen in August).
