Puzzle

US Version

A pile of blocks has been carefully stacked. The image below is a view from the side. The perspective is also rotated in an unknown direction.

Gravity is acting on the blocks, so any block not touching the ground or a block below it will fall.

When you're looking at the blocks from the correct angle, which direction, A, B, C, or D, is up?

UK Version

Blocks have been carefully stacked as shown in the image below. The image is a view from the side, and the perspective has been rotated in an unknown direction.

Gravity is acting on the blocks, so any block not touching the surface or a block below it will fall.

When you're looking at the blocks from the correct angle, which direction, A, B, C or D, is "up"?

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

When you examine the stack of blocks from each direction, can you find any unstable blocks? Look carefully.

US Version

Try turning the image and looking at it with each letter as the top. Keep an eye out for blocks with blank spaces beneath them.

UK Version

Try turning the image and looking at it with each different letter as "up". Keep an eye out for blocks with empty spaces beneath them.

US Version

If you look at the stack with B as the top, the small green square beneath the big red square would fail, so B isn't the answer.

If you keep looking at the image like this, you'll find the answer!

UK Version

If you look at the stack with B as "up", the small green square beneath the big red square would fall, so B isn't the answer.

Keep looking at it from different directions like this and you'll soon find the answer!

US Version

Look at the image with C as the top. Two of the small green squares would fall, so C is also not the answer.

The answer is either A or D.

UK Version

Look at the image with C as "up". Two of the small green squares would fall, so C can be ruled out as well.

The answer is either A or D.


Solution

Incorrect

US Version

Too bad!

Take a closer look next time.

UK Version

Too bad.

Look again carefully.

Correct

You got it!

US Version

D is indeed up! When you look carefully at the stack from each angle, you can see which blocks would be pulled down by gravity. With the exception of D at the top, all the other positions would have falling blocks.

UK Version

D is indeed "up"! When you look carefully at the stack from each angle, you can see which blocks would be pulled down by gravity. With the exception of when D is "up", all other possibilities involve blocks falling.
