Puzzle on Classic Lateral Thinking

This classic lateral thinking puzzle can be solved using both algebra and logical reasoning. We’ll show you how this is theoretically conceivable.

  • It might be any quantity that was present at the start, as well as any liquid.
  • We are aware that we have transferred a tablespoon from one glass to another.
  • Then, we transferred a tablespoon from the other glass to the first glass.
  • As a result, the amount of liquid in either glass remains the same at the end of the process.

As a result, we can deduce that any coke that is missing in the coke glass will be present in the lemonade glass.

Additionally, the same amount of lemonade will be missing. It will be present in the coke glass after it has been removed from the lemonade glass.
