Brainteaser Answer 4

Is this a yolk?

Answer 4: Just One Box!

First, it’s important to note that ALL of the boxes are marked incorrectly…a lot of people miss that fact and thus get the wrong answer.

Let’s take a look…

  • You open the box marked BIG and it’s filled of the small eggs.
  • You know that the other two boxes must contain the big and mixed egg groups.
  • Those two boxes are marked SMALL and MIXED.
  • Now the box labelled MIXED must hold the big eggs because all boxes are labelled incorrectly.
  • Which leaves the SMALL box holding the big eggs.

…and all you had to do was open one box of eggs! Simple really.
