Puzzle

US Version

In the middle of the wall below is the last page of a 12-month calendar. The previous 11 pages were once pasted on this same wall, as you can see by the tattered remains still stuck everywhere. Why is it such a mess? Well, when each new month arrived, somebody ripped off the old month's page and pasted the new one on top of it without bothering to line up the edges at all. Sloppy work, huh?

Which month's page is the arrow pointing at? Answer with a number, for example January = 1, February = 2, and so on.

Somebody clearly tore off the old months' pages and pasted the new ones on top without bothering to line up the edges at all. Sloppy work, eh?

The question is, which month's page is the arrow in the bottom-right pointing at? Answer with a number, for example January = 1, February = 2 and so on.

US Version

The complete calendar page on top, of course, is December, the twelfth month of the year. Try and figure out where in the stack the page that the arrow is pointing at was pasted. It looks like it was quite a while ago...

The answer is both the farthest month from December and the closest, depending on how you think about it.

UK Version

The answer is the furthest month from December if you're looking at a calendar, but the closest if you think about it another way.

Correct

Sharp eye!

January, the first month of the year, is the right answer.

US Version

When you look carefully, you can see that there are 10 pages between the one the arrow is pointing at and the December one on top. One possible order is shown in the image above. Notice that whichever order the pages are in, the one the arrow is pointing at is always January.
