How can you join the \(9\) dots with just \(4\) straight lines without lifting off the pencil?

What d'you understand from the following-

...........................................**S** **T** **A** **N** **D**..................................................................................
...........................................**0** **2** **3** **4** **5**...................................................................................

Simply nothing, because "No one under stand"......:D.

These were some of the 'Think outside the box' logical puzzles I've seen. I'm pretty sure you also must've seen things like them. Please post all the 'Think outside the box' or logical puzzles you know,, so that we may enjoy them. I will also try to post all which I know in the comments. And of course, do not forger to like ans reshare it for all to see.

If you show me how to join those 9 dots with just 4 straight lines without lifting the pencil, assuming the dots to be of no length and breadth, I'll give you a chocolate. I think you're making two parallel lines meet at infinity.......Log in to reply

– Sharky Kesa · 2 years, 6 months ago

Not at infinity but a long distance. It is slanted but this slant touches the points.Log in to reply

– Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 6 months ago

Oh! I see. But then you are considering the points to have a positive length or breadth, which is against their definition.........Log in to reply

If there were \(3\) birds sitting on the branch of a tree, and a shooter shoots one of them, then how many remain? This question needs some serious voting........ – Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 6 months ago

@Satvik Golechha My answer would be '0' birds. When the hunter shoots one of them, the sound of the gun would scare the birds away. The killed bird would then fall down. – Ritu Roy · 2 years, 6 months ago

There can be some brave birds or the birds can be deaf(if there are birds who are deaf ;))Log in to reply

Option C- All three.Log in to reply

– Kartik Sharma · 2 years, 6 months ago

Yes, the answer is 'all three' because you asked "how many remain", not "how many remain alive" or "how many remain dead". As the body(although dead) is there, this is the answer, I suppose.Log in to reply

Yup!! In fact, from three different point of views, all three options can be proved correct....maybe I should make a fourth option 'All of these'.Log in to reply

– Kartik Sharma · 2 years, 6 months ago

Hey, I have just got a "5th" option after "all of these" and it says "Not even a single bird remain". This is because the question says "3 birds sitting on the branch", so they could be sitting one after another in a row and hence, when the shooter shoots "one of them", the first one in the row. The bullet speed was so fast that it penetrated the 1st one, then the 2nd one and then the 3rd(just like the 'plank' question). So, the answer can also be NOT EVEN A SINGLE BIRD. This is awesome, one statement, 5(or even more) answers!!!!Log in to reply

– Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 6 months ago

Gosh!! This is getting crazy......Log in to reply

– Sharky Kesa · 2 years, 6 months ago

All three because the shooter shoots 'one of them', not one of the birds.Log in to reply

– Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 6 months ago

Superb!! English is a crazy language. There's ambiguity everywhere, but let us assume for the sake of the question that 'them' refers to the birds......Log in to reply

– Sharky Kesa · 2 years, 6 months ago

How many 'what' remain? Does what refer to the shooter, the birds, the branches of the tree, etc.?Log in to reply

– Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 6 months ago

The birds, of course. Had it been anythin' except the birds, would the question make sense~?Log in to reply

– Sharky Kesa · 2 years, 6 months ago

How many birds remain dead or alive?Log in to reply

– Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 6 months ago

Forget it..... If I say 'How many remain alive', then you're gonna ask How many remain alive on the tree or off the tree. You're not gonna leave this question flawless!Log in to reply

– Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 6 months ago

Option B- Two remain.Log in to reply

Why you wrote 2 and 2 add upto 3. I understood that 2 remain so you wrote it, but what about the other oneLog in to reply

@Tushar Malik If you're asking about the question you commented on, them it is for you to find out how it is possible. If I write the answer, others won't be able to enjoy. If you still want the answer, mail me. But I think you've got mixed up.....I have posted 2 different puzzles, note that they're on different longitudes (or possible latitudes)...-o: – Satvik Golechha · 2 years, 6 months ago
