1st Graders Could Solve These Puzzles In Seconds, But Most Adults Can’t, Can You?

KIDS in Hong Kong can solve this logic puzzle in just 20 seconds, but it’s got lots of adults dazed and confused. Can you figure it out?
The puzzle comes from a Hong Kong elementary school admission test for six-year-olds going into first-grade.
It contains a simple drawing of a parking lot with a car parked in one of the many bays available.
The bay number the car is in is unable to be seen (see above) and the question asked above the drawing is: “What is the number of the parking space containing the car?”

The puzzle can be found at and has made world headlines as more and more people try to solve it.
Still haven’t worked it out?

SPOILER ALERT: The answer is below!

British puzzle inventor David Bodycombe told The Guardian the parking lot logic puzzle was first created by him.
He thought of it after he was inspired by a car park he saw in Portugal 20 years ago.


If you need a hint, try looking at this.
The trick is to turn the drawing upside down — or the computer screen.
