1 1

Y

Tags say wordplay and story, so here's the story -

Easy 1st

One won.
Why?
One won [over] two.
Two won [over] four.
for Two won [over] Three too.

So it's some kind of a race with the first place going to "One", second place to "Two".

  • $\begingroup$ @nicael, You're right. This answer probably doesn't make sense then. $\endgroup$ – ruudvan Jun 7 '16 at 15:54
  • $\begingroup$ This was the answer I was looking for... My apologies if I missed tagged... I'll leave for now until a vote or edit... GJ and +1 on the anser @nicael $\endgroup$ – MegaMark Jun 7 '16 at 16:24
  • $\begingroup$ @Mega Lol, I really didn't suppose that you've meant to ask about the story, it looked more like a riddle. $\endgroup$ – nicael Jun 7 '16 at 16:26
  • $\begingroup$ I should add that the order in which the 'racers' finished was One,Two,Three, Four respectively. Three finishing before Four is only observable through deduction... $\endgroup$ – MegaMark Jun 7 '16 at 17:41
  • $\begingroup$ @MegaMark, I'm sure my interpretation of the last line is probably slightly different than yours. $\endgroup$ – ruudvan Jun 7 '16 at 17:46

Could it be

light

Thoughts:

The shape which is made by the numbers and Y in the current position looks like "L". A hint tells to look, and also says it's easy (weak in a possible interpretation). Y is the sound similar to "AI" sometimes. Mentioning the title makes to think of T.

  • $\begingroup$ I like this... but I simply didn't have the cunning and craftsmanship to go that deep... the title "Easy 1st" I thought was cleaver because this is my 1st post... and it's also a clue!!! XD $\endgroup$ – MegaMark Jun 7 '16 at 16:26
