Originally posted by FabianFnasThe 2 and the 6, but they will be pushed together (or on top of each other, but so that both numbers are still visible). And then everyone will go and eat some french fries.
This is an old classic.
If it has been posted here before I apologize but in that case here is an encore:
Ten wooden chips has been labeled 1 to 10.
These were laid out like this:
8, 5, 4, 9.
What will be the next chip to be laid out?
Please - do not spoil the fun for the others, don't present the explanation, just tell what is the next chip will be.

11 - 20 would give you
18, 11, 15, 14 ... :-)
Originally posted by FabianFnasOkey, last hint didn't help...
Correct, totally correct.
Then there are three, besides me, who knows.
I gave the very same problem in a Mensa Sweden meeting, but then I had to write the numbers in this order:
1, 5, 4, 9, 6, 7, 10, 3, 2, 8.
And, yes, they solved it very easily. Perhaps they had seen it before.
Is this a hint? Yes, perhaps it is.
