    There is a 4x4 block apartment, therefore 16 rooms . The block has a number of internal gardens, replacing a room. For every free room there is a window. The windows are not allowed to show the outside. The windows may only show a internal garden. Internal garden may have any number of windows. How many Internal gardens are there in the 4x4 block.
    HINT: Anwser is lower than 8.

    Well this question was in a test I did. All the rooms have to have windows. The corners of the rooms cannot have windows, What is the least number of windows. I got 6. It has to adjacent.
