Puzzle of the Day: 79
At the entrance to a members club stands a stranger seeking admission. A friend told him that it’s easy to get in. You just have to answer a question corrcetly! Answering wrong, however, will result in being shot! To live a little longer, the man waits in a back alley near the entrance for people to go in. After a while a man comes to the entrance. The door warden asks him: “Twelve?” to which he replies “Six!” and goes in. “That’s easy.” our friend thinks, but he waits a little longer. Another man comes to the door. “Six?” the door warden asks, to which he replies “Three!” and goes in. “That’s too good to be true” our friend thinks, and he was not right. Because, when asked “Four?”, he answered “Two!” and was found dead in the alley. What was the correct answer?
