4. Tricky Riddle Corner

1) One. “I” was going to Wan Chai.

2) You open the steamer labelled “both.” As all the labels are wrong, whichever dim sum is inside must be the only food it contains.

For example, if you take out a har gau from the “both” steamer, then you can label it “har gau.” Similarly, the steamer which says “siu mai” cannot only contain siu mai, and so it must contain both. Thus the “har gau” steamer actually contains siu mai.

3) “If I were to ask the other CY what door he is guarding, what would he say?” Each answer will be the identity of the door that the CY you ask is guarding.

4) Light both coils of incense, but light one of them at both ends. When that coil burns out (after 30 minutes), light the other end of the second coil, which will then burn out in 15 minutes.

5) The Chief Executive is the boy’s mother.
