Now riddles for logic and attentiveness have become very popular. If earlier it was necessary to compare the facts indicated in the riddle and select appropriate answers for them that meet the criteria indicated in it, then in those that we are talking about now, the answer is hidden in the wording itself or somewhere on the surface and in another part of the logical reflections. Sometimes you have to look for meaning on the surface, and not at depth. Let's analyze such riddles using the following as an example: “Which hand is better to stir tea?”
Anyone immediately rushes to think like this. Yeah, which hand is better to stir the tea? Well, if I'm left-handed, then it's easier for me to stir, of course, with my left. Although, the question, apparently, is not related to this. Then with what? In a glove? Who has five fingers? But everyone has five on their handfingers … And, probably, there is some kind of hitch here!.. But what is it? Probably with a clean hand. But what about hygiene? The question is which hand is better to stir the tea, and not which hand is he althier or safer for the body … Probably, nevertheless, the one that is closer to the glass of tea at the moment. Or with that hand in which at this moment there is no cup of tea. After all, with the hand in which the cup, you will not be able to stir the tea. It means that the answer to the riddle “which hand is better to stir the tea” will be “free”!.. No? Here it is. Well then, I give up. I don't know what else to think of here.
And the answer was not in the field of picking up hands, but in the field of what you can generally get into tea to stir it. Hand tea does not interfere. Mix tea with a spoon. Of course, one can argue with this, because the spoon is still clamped in the hand, a person operates with his hand when he stirs the tea. But all the same, a spoon is clamped in the hand, and the hand does not climb into the drink itself. Here are the things. Will have to reconcile. No hand is easier. It's easier with a spoon. You, as they say, lost.
