Recently Procter & Gamble India had participated in

2. A man gave one son 10 cents and another son
was given 15 cents. What time is it?
3. A boat has a ladder that has six rungs, each rung
is one foot apart. The
bottom rung is one foot from the water. The tide rises
at 12 inches every
15 minutes. High tide peaks in one hour. When the tide
is at it's highest,
many rungs are under water?
4. There is a house with four walls. Each wall faces
south. There is a
window in each wall. A bear walks by one of the
windows. What color is the
5. Is half of two plus two equal to two or three?
6. There is a room. The shutters are blowing in. There

1. The word "incorrectly."
2. 1:45. The man gave away a total of 25 cents. He

3. None, the boat rises with the tide. Googly ;-)
4. White. If all the walls face south, the house is at
the North pole, and
the bear, therefore, is a polar bear.
5. Three. Well, it seems that it could almost be

the mathematical orders of operation, division is
performed before

is three.
6. Sloppy is a (gold)fish. The wind blew the shutters
