Four of the families have three story houses.

One family, only has a 2 story house,

and it is built at the end of the neighborhood.

What is this neighborhood?


1 Answer 1


The neighbourhood is:

A hand. The 5 'families' are the 4 fingers and the thumb. Each of the fingers has 3 phalanx bones (3 'storeys') while the thumb ('at the end of the neighbourhood') has only 2 phalanx bones (2 'storeys').

  • $\begingroup$ @entioneveryone If you're referring to 'story' and 'storey' that's just a UK vs US English thing :) If it's something else, do say! $\endgroup$
