This post contains a small collection of picture puzzles.
Some require logic to solve, others spatial awareness and others are language based.
1. The Missing Word
The missing word is “four“.
If you answered “three”, you didn’t notice the extra “r” you just added.
If you answered “3”, that’s a digit, not a word!
2. Swan Tales
The second swan from the left honks, and only that swan.
At first, none of the swans know what colour their tail is.
The extra clue for the 2nd swan is that the 1st swan does NOT honk.
This tells the 2nd swan that its tail must be a different colour from the 3rd swan. If the 2nd and 3rd swans had the same colour tails, the 1st swan would know that its tail must be the opposite colour and would have honked.
The 2nd swan can see that the 3rd swan has a white tail, so knows that it must have a black tail.
3. A Cryptic Inscription
The trick to decoding the inscription is to realise that all the “E”s have been removed.
There is a legend that this inscription was found in an old church in Wales.
The full message reads: “Persevere ye perfect men, Ever keep these precepts ten“.
In other words, follow The Ten Commandments.
