Mental Mat Room Weekly Challenge #3

This week’s word game courtesy of A Daily Brain Teaser blog:

Rhonda will go see ballet but not opera. Her favorite number is eight and she doesn’t like nine. She likes salmon but not trout. She hates Mondays but likes Wednesdays. Does she use a comb or a brush?

Feel free to post your answer in a comment.

I love tracking things down and sniffing things out, mystery and intrigue, searching and researching, finding a needle in a haystack, puzzles, riddles, and things that are clever and thought provoking.

  1. It the principle was that her preference is for the longest word of the two alternatives(in terms of letters, which happens to be the case in all the examples), then she’d use a brush (5 words), not a comb (4).
    Under this rule, Brush would be ‘a’ consistent answer, but apparently not the right one.

      The official answer was about the silent letters, like her name, but you certainly get credit for finding a great alternative!
