The Man in the Elevator


THE MAN IN THE ELEVATOR

For a start, here's one of the oldest and best- known lateral thinking mysteries. It goes like this:
A man lives on the tenth floor of a­
building. Every day, he takes the elevator to ­
the first floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns, he always takes the elevator to the seventh floor and then walks the remaining flights of stairs to his apartment on the tenth floor. Why does he do this?

Hi Miss Ale, I read the short mystery and I think I know the answer. I will email it to you soon. I love this type of guessing mysteries. I will think about the answer a lot because I dont know really why he did that. I think since the question is easy its hard to answer it. I think this short story is strange but fun to read because its funny how it says that he walks from the seventh floor to the tenth. Keep on blogging trick questions!!

Hi Miss Ale
I don´t really know the answer but I´m thinking about it... He is a strange man, because nobody would do that. When I finish thinking on this I like to solve this type of mysteries.
I will send you a mail with the answer

I know why he goes to the 7 and then goes to the 10 by the stairs. Because he couldn't reach to the tenth button because he is short.
I liked it because its something funny.

Bianca F said...

That is what mystery is about. You dont know what or why he/she is doing.
I think he visits someone in the seventh floor, and the three remaining there is someone that he wants to avoid.

ines m said...

Agus T said...

Very difficult....... I do´'t know yet the answer, when I finish thinking it I will send you the mail!!!! I like very much this type of mysteries, but they are not so easy, still.. continue doing them.

Franco S said...

I really dont know whats the answer but I think I already listen to it. Im going to send you an e-mail.

Franco S said...

I know that I shouldnt put this Comment but I know the answer. Maybe he do because he maybe think there are spying him so he stop at the seventh floor to dont know where he lives.

justo l olivos said...

Well, that is really odd. The oly thing I can think about is that he is a criminal, he always comes back home after commiting a crime,he knows that on the floor number eight lives a famous detective so he does it to avoid being in the same elevator as the detective because there might be a chance that the detective ricognises him.
