In today’s world, computers do almost everything for us. Soon, we will hardly need to use our brains.
Therefore, it’s a good idea to keep the brain cells active by doing any puzzles and riddles that come your way.
And lately, solving challenges is getting very popular on the internet, which is great for those that want to keep their brain in shape.
This past few years, I have taken a liking to leave some time of my day to just sit down and solve some challenges. It can be anything from math problems to solving a clever puzzle.
Nowadays, I think we need this kind of brain exercise more than ever before. Sudoku and crosswords have almost always been the most popular ones, usually included in the morning paper – and now in the past years, it feels like the amount of puzzles and riddles on the web has grown more and more.
Of course, this is a good thing. Brainteasers are something you can never get too much of.
I found the test below earlier today – and I wanted to share it with you.
Only 10% get it right
In the picture, we can see 4 matches – 2 vertical and 2 horizontal – but your goal now is to figure out how to move only one of them to create a square.
It is said that only 1 in 10 people can solve this puzzle on the first try, because yes – it is actually not that easy. With this kind of challenges, it’s always a good idea to think a little “outside the box”.
Well – can you figure out how to create a square by moving just one match?!
Did you figure out the answer? Well, as I said, it’s quite difficult!
But after you solve it, or want to see the solution, you can find it below!
So, the answer is not a complex and difficult movement. The solution is actually pulling the top match slightly outwards. This creates a square hole in the middle where all the matches meet!
Smart, wasn’t it? Now press that share button to invite your friends to a clever challenge!
