The Man in the Elevator
A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go down to the ground floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns he takes the elevator to the seventh floor and walks up the stairs to reach his apartment on the tenth floor. On a rainy day, or if there are other people in the elevator, he goes to his floor directly. He hates walking so why does he do it?
This is probably the best known and most celebrated of all lateral thinking puzzles. It is a true classic. Although there are many possible solutions which fit the initial conditions, only the canonical answer is truly satisfying.
Guys..the answer is very simple
The person is a dwarf!! Simply have a look at the above img..his hands can only reach till the 7th button and not above that.
On the day it rains, he’l have his umbrella to help him out to reach the 10th floor button.
When there are ppl inside, they’ll press the 10th floor button for me 😛 😀
