Best quiz question ever
Every year, in the US, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry gives out an award. What is it called?Think long, thing hard, do not Google, and remember, it can be worked out.
This question, by the by, was framed by Pradeep Ramaratnam for a quiz conducted last Sunday by Pradeep and Siddhartha Vaidyanathan. My team led in parts, but eventually finished third, just a single painful point behind the winners. Shiju Thomas has a full report here.
And, ah, none of the teams cracked the question above. But all of them groaned after they heard the answer, so workoutable it was. And clapped -- so good it was.
Update (September 23): Here's the answer -- but don't click till you try to work it out, please!
