Question 39 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

17th September 2009 by Emilie

Here we are already, the last question of the day. It is time to enter the Third Zone again and… hopefully escape safe and sound!

The Third Zone: Beams of Light

Our heroes move even faster, blurring before our eyes until they resemble nothing more than the streaks of coloured light after which they are named. Like two-thirds of a rainbow they speed through the city, which begins to fall apart around them as Twingor the Troll lumbers after them. A scene that could only unfold… in the Third Zone.

At first Rod, Grant, and Blaise were simply fleeing the troll, but then they saw an exit. A small hole that leads they know not where. But as one they turn and dash for the exit, hoping that Twingor will not be able to follow. The hole is so small that they must enter it precisely in the center. Two of them are slightly off course, doomed to miss the exit. But one of them will hit it spot on and pull the other two along in their wake.

Beams of Light

QUESTION: Which of our recent-graduates-gone-all-incandescent is aimed directly at the center of the exit?”

    Grant hits the spot because green is in the center of the light spectrum.
