This week’s question:
Adam lives with Diane, in Aldershot in a maisonette. Is it Kate or Kara who lives with Alan in Ramsgate in an apartment?
See the answer after the break!
Well, despite the fact that everyone seemed to think the answer was Kate (and I’m curious as to why) it was, I’m sorry to say, Kara!
To work out who lived with Alan, you needed to look at the first letters of certain words in the sentence – the person, the location and the type of house. Let’s look at the first sentence as an example:
Adam lives with Diane, in Aldershot in a maisonette.
See how the letters, highlighted in bold, spell out the name of the person at the start of the sentence? Taking this rule, we can apply it to the second half of the second sentence to see:
…lives with Alan in Ramsgate in an apartment?
This clearly spells out ARA, meaning the person who lives with Alan must be Kara, so that the rule works.
Did you get it? Or did you think it was Kate? If so, why?
