The Lift Problem

  1. Jun 24, 2005 #1
    Puzzle:
    A man leaves for his office and takes the lift from the 60th floor to the ground floor. When he returns back he takes the same lift to the 45th floor and then walks up to the 60th floor. Why?

    Points to remember:
    1. He is not a health freak
    2. He does not have any relatives or friends on the 45th floor.

    He is a midget whose hands cannot reach higher than the 45th floor switch in the elevator.

    How many times are we going to see the same "brain teaser"? It gets old after the first 4 or 5 times you see it :zzz:
