The FBI special agent is one of the most difficult jobs to do. According to statistics, less than 5% of applicants are accepted. Would you be one of the few who took the exam?
At Bright Side, we want to give you the opportunity to feel like a special agent with these 5 cases to solve.
Who is the mother?
This is the first test. Look at the picture.
There are two ladies in a room that are sitting facing each other while a child plays on the floor. Study the image well.
Who do you think is the child’s true mother?
The child’s mother is the lady on the left. She is sitting so that her legs are facing the child.
- This position reflects a mother’s natural desire to protect her child.
- The woman’s position on the left is protective, slightly tilted forward.
- It is natural for young children to look at their mother when they play or do some kind of activity if she is close.
A serial killer kidnapped people and led them to take one of two pills, one harmless and the other poisonous. Any tablet the victim took, the serial killer took the other. Each time, the victims died and the serial killer survived.
How did the killer always get the harmless pill?
Both pills were harmless. The poison was in the glass of water the victims drank.
A man and a woman went to dinner at a restaurant. While they waited for the main course, she ordered 5 drinks with ice because it was very hot.
The woman drank four of them at the same time, while the man drank only one. After a while, the man got sick and died. Doctors said all the drinks were poisoned.
Why was the woman still alive when the man died? Read carefully.
The poison was in the ice. While the woman drank her drinks quickly, the ice didn’t have time to melt. The man drank slowly and the poison melted in his drink.
Imagine a scene. A man was found dead, he has a gun in his hand and a tape recorder at his side. The detective pressed the “Play” button and heard the message that said: “I am tired of this life and I have decided to stop my pain and suffering” and then follow a shot. Somehow, the detective doesn’t think it was suicide.
Why does the detective think it was a murder?
If the man committed suicide, how could he rewind the tape to the beginning?
The mystery of Christmas
A detective was on duty during the Christmas holidays, and on the morning of December 25, he called. He rang the bell and a minute later a sleepy housewife opened it.
The detective said: “Your neighbor says that yesterday, on Christmas Eve, he came to your house for a party and while you were here you broke into his house and stole some valuable items.”
The owner replied: “That is not true. Our family celebrated Christmas Eve at our friends’ house. We barely had time to decorate our Christmas tree.
The detective said: “Don’t worry. It’s pretty obvious to me that your neighbor is a liar.”
How did the detective know?
The lights of the Christmas tree are disconnected and, in fact, a lamp is missing, they would not work without it. It was clear to the detective that the owner was telling the truth. He had decorated the tree so fast that he didn’t even check if the lights worked or not.
