Is it supposed to say how long it has taken you? I think my attempt was probably between 6 and 10 minutes.

It took me some minutes. I didn't look.

These things are nonsense in regards to I.Q. The trick to this one is

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td valign="middle" align="left"><font size="1">Spoiler (Highlight to Read):</font>
</td></tr><tr><td bgcolor="#ffffff" valign="middle" align="left"><font color="#ffffff" size="1">
Realising that you can leave the criminal on his/her own.

I had that kind of test in primary school.
Some author (of who i forgot the name of :unsure: ) presented that question towards us. It took the GROUP of us (30 6 year olds) around 3-10 mins to work it out, as far as i recalled...

If you like riddles here&#39;s a tough one :

You have 10 bags with coins (each containing more than 100 coins ) and a pair of scales (one that doesn&#39;t compare weight&#39;s ,it just counts it).
9 of the bags contain real coins each weighing 10 grams and one contains false each weighing 9 grams .How can you find out which bag contains the false coins by using the scales just one time.

If someone has heard it before let the others give it a shot first.

Oh ...sorry if the translation from greek isn&#39;t very good . ;)

I don&#39;t think you wrote it out properly.

Try one of these: http://www.contestcen.com/scale.htm

It&#39;s like coins #2 but with 10 bags (although coins#2 has a fault )
