Mental Examination: You're driving a bus that is leaving on a trip from Pennsylvania and ending in New York. To start off with, there were 32 passengers on the bus. At the next bus stop, 11 people get off and 9 people get on. At the next bus stop, 2 people get off and 2 people get on. At the next bus stop, 12 people get on and 16 people get off. At the next bus stop, 5 people get on and 3 people get off. **NOW DON'T LOOK BACK!! Question -- What color are the bus driver's eyes? STOP HERE ...... THINK FOR A MOMENT. Don't know? Then see below: The key to understanding the problem is focusing on the right information. If we assume it is critical to keep track of the number of people getting on and off the bus, we have focused on information that turns out to be unessential. Your assumption has distracted us from the important information. The answer to the problem is found in the first sentence. YOU are driving the bus, so the color is, of course, the color of your own eyes. If you didn't get it right, don't worry. The majority of people don't answer correctly. If you got it right, you have exceptional skills in problem solving. My apologies for making you feel like a moron! =}
