    Why the downvote? +1 for consolation – Omega Krypton Dec 5 at 9:36

    @OmegaKrypton Votes should not be for "consolation", but on the quality of the puzzle. This is a puzzle stolen directly from somewhere else (and not a particularly good one, IMO), so it has been downvoted. – Deusovi Dec 5 at 10:20

    I believe that it has properly sited the source and the puzzle is not that bad as you have said, never mind though, thank you for your reminder – Omega Krypton Dec 5 at 10:32

    Arthur and casualcoder are right, so image 3 or answer is fishy. – Tom Dec 5 at 13:16

  • @Nank, that is a philosophical question. If the cap was on, then the whole object would be pointing up. With the cap off, 2 is still up (and only refers to the tip of the word), but now the rest of the object is pointing upsidedown in the sense that it's not the right way up for using? – Tom Dec 5 at 15:03

I'm thinking the premise and question are wrong, since we already know...
"A picture is worth a thousand words." .

Therefore, if the question is asking for 1 answer, there are still 999 more to go along with it.

  • Hello and welcome to PSE. Please familiarise yourself with the rules of the site. Also, you need to hide your answers in spoilers. – rhsquared Dec 6 at 7:04
