A brain teaser is one type of puzzles which required deep thoughts of your mind and sharpness of your brain to find the right answer. Often you need to go out of the box to think about it to find the way-outs. With given constraints, you need to think in different angle to find out what is actually hidden within the logic, mostly called ‘Lateral Thinking’.
Below you are served with pictorial representation of some very popular brain teasers to test how much intelligent you are, how well you could think unconventionally with definite constraints to find the thinks in the most conventional way.
Q1. You are given 1 single triangle with few matchsticks in the below image. You only need to move 3 matchsticks in such way that 3 separate triangles are formed.
Q2. In the below figure, you are given 10 countries broken into different chunks of letters. All the chunks are mixed up well without repeating the same chunks twice. You need to determine the name of those 10 countries from the given letter chunks.
EZU ITZ ZIL ELA BRA GI IA FI
PAN MBA BEL AND BER ZI NL BO
CAM VEN DIA AND UM SW
BWE MEX ERL ICO JA LI
MEX + ICO = MEXICO
BRA + ZIL = BRAZIL
JA + PAN = JAPAN
CAM + BO + DIA = CAMBODIA
SW + ITZ + ERL + AND = SWITZERLAND
ZI + MBA + BWE = ZIMBABWE
VEN + EZU + ELA = VENEZUELA
FI + NL + AND = FINLAND
LI + BER + IA = LIBERIA
Q3. Identical Sections:
Below you are given a pictorial representation of collection of few small squares. Slice it into two identical/Symmetrical sections:
Below you are given a full rectangles with a rectangular hole in it’s center. You need to slice it in such a way, so that you can easily form a 8×8 square without disturbing the rectangular hole in the middle:
Q5. Could you find out a 5 digit number which has no ‘0’ nor ‘1’ within it, and without repetition of any digit, where:
a. the last digit is the sum of the 1st two digits
b. the 2nd digit is twice the 1st digit
c. the 3rd one is the largest digit among the 5 digits
d. the 4th digit is one fourth of the sum of all the digits
Now work your brain out and determine the answers without seeing the given ‘Answer’ section. These will definitely help you to sharpen your brain further.
