Puzzle. A goat was on a 10-meter leash. Yet it managed to go 300 meters away from the post. How come?
The standard answer. The leash wasn’t attached to the post.
My students scrutinized the puzzle and found some other possible ambiguities. For example, there might be two posts: the goat was leashed to one and was far away from the other. In another example, the timing is not given. It is possible that the goat was on the leash at one time and unleashed and far away from the post at another time. Here is my favorite answer.
My favorite answer. The goat ate the leash.Share:
