Puzzle

In front of you are four tangled lengths of rope. Mark the ones you think will form a knot when you grab them by their ends and pull them taut.

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

It's difficult to work out all the tangles and turns of a rope in one glance. You'll have better luck if you keep the shape of a simple knot in mind and inspect each part of the rope individually.

Take a look at Rope B. If you start from the right end of the rope and examine the first loop you encounter, you'll notice that the two strands of rope are just lying on top of each other. The same goes for the loop on the left side of the rope. There's no way this rope will knot up.

Only one of the four ropes will actually knot up when pulled from both ends. Rope B is already out. Now, which one will you choose?


Solution

Incorrect

Try again!

Take a good look at each rope.

Correct

Good job!

The only thing you need to do to solve this puzzle is look at it. However, the images themselves are complicated, so it's easy to get confused.

It would be fun to test all the various configurations with actual pieces of rope.
