The Inheritance is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.

Puzzle

US Version

Four siblings inherited a large plot of land. They each built a house in their favorite spot without thinking about how best to divide up the rest.

They've decided that the fairest solution is to split the land into four equally shaped six-square portions that include each house. Also, each portion must touch, but not include, the well in the center.

Based on their decision, which sibling's property will include the star? Circle house A, B, C, or D, and then tap Submit.
