Today, we are inviting you to solve several logical problems.
How did the grannies get out of prison?
There are two elderly women in a prison cell. They started working on an escape plan. One possible option – through the window with no bars. But it is very high – 15 feet from the floor. However they tried, they couldn’t reach it.
Then they decided to dig a tunnel in the dirt floor of their cell. After a while, the ingenious ladies realized that there was a much easier way to get out. What did they come up with?
Set the timer for about 1-2 minutes and think. Meanwhile, we will write the correct answer below.
The solution: While the grandmothers were digging, the pile of earth grew. Thanks to it, they finally reached the window and got out of their confinement.
