Cut Which One? is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.


Below are six linked rings.

They may look like a tangled mess, but there is one ring that, if cut away, would leave the remaining five rings connected end to end in a long chain.

Which one must you cut in order to make the chain? Choose one answer from below.

It helps to think about how a chain is formed.
To make a chain, you have one ring on each end. Each ring between these two end rings will be connected to two rings. If any of the rings are connected to three or more other rings, there's no way a chain can form.

Two rings make up the ends of the chain. Which two rings here look like they could be ends?
Remember, end rings are each connected to one other ring.

Two rings make up the ends of the chains. If you study the picture closely, you can see that the F ring is only connected to one other ring, the E ring.
Meanwhile, the other end ring is the A ring.
So, which ring should you cut?



Too bad!

Good job!

If you examine the connections for each ring, the answer is surprisingly easy, isn't it?
