Puzzle

US Version

The butler left a note with instructions, but it's hard to read because he seems to have written it in a hurry.

"Don't forget curtain 13!"

Yet there are only four curtains labeled: A, B, C, and D.

Which of these was he referring to?

UK Version

The butler left a note with instructions, but he scribbled it out in a hurry, making it a little hard to understand.

"Don't forget curtain 13!"

Which set of curtains could he be referring to here, the ones labelled A, B, C or D?

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

US Version

Did the butler mean to write "13"...?

Perhaps he was in such a hurry, his handwriting obscured the true meaning of his message.

Rushing can lead one to make mistakes, you know.

UK Version

Do you really think the butler meant to write "13"?

If he was truly in a hurry, he may have written it so sloppily that he could make out the true meaning.

What could "13" refer to?

US Version

There are no hints to be found in the window or curtains themselves. The note says--or is supposed to say--everything you need to know.

UK Version

There are no hints to be found in the window or curtains themselves. The contents of the note say it all.

US Version

If you push the "1" and "3" in "13" together, they turn into something entirely different.

Something that looks more like a letter than a number.

UK Version

If you pushed the "1" and the "3" of "13" closer together, they might look a little different.

Perhaps more like a letter than a number.

US Version

Your choices are A, B, C, and D.

When you write the "1" and "3" of "13" very close together, they look like one of those four letters.

UK Version

Your choices are A, B, C and D.

If you write the "1" and "3" of "13" very close together, then you'll end up with something that looks very much like one of these letters.


Solution

Incorrect

US Version

Too bad!

The handwriting on this note is atrocious. Maybe the sloppiness is covering the note's meaning.

UK Version

Too bad.

The note looks as if it was scrawled out in a hurry, so it's pretty hard to read.

Correct

Correct!

US Version

The butler meant the B curtains.

It's easy to mistake a hastily written "B" for the number "13."

A gentleman always has good penmanship!

UK Version

B is the right answer.

It's easy to mistake a poorly written "B" for the number "13".

Always remember that penmanship counts!
