    A circular paper chain of 12 links has magically come apart into 4 equal pieces. Is it possible to remake the circular paper chain by only breaking 3 links ?

    Yes, as long as you have the means to join them up again 😵

    Suppose the pieces are AAA BBB CCC DDD. Open all three rings from DDD and reassemble the chain like this : AAADBBBDCCCD

    (The last D joins onto the first A, but I can't think of a good way to show that here)
