Spoiler for I think


Can I ask how did you come about the answer?

I think it's A. In each square there is at least one line and if there is more than one line, it will be going at a slope opposite it i.e. goes from a positive slope to a negative slope

4.166% change in the length of the ruler


Yep, that's the answer.



There might be a trap. Back to the secondary school for the definition of the measurement error.


I have rulers which are divided in cm and subdivided in 1/10 of cm.

If I tell you I mesured 2.4 cm, you assume the the value is between 2.35 and 2.45. Error in percentace=0.1/2.4*100

If I tell you I mesured 7.4 cm, you assume the the value is between 7.35 and 7.45. Error in percentace=0.1/7.4*100


I happen to have a curiosity of a ruler in inches. It's subdivisions are 6 (for 6 lines per inch or 12 cpi), 8 (for 8 lines per inch or 8 cpi) and 10 (for 10 cpi).


(Supposing this ruler shrinked by 1/24, I get a headache.)


If antelOpe has such a ruler, the error is 1/subdivison/4*100.


Also thanks for the creative and enthusiastic approach, harey.

Could they communicate beforehand so that they can deduce a plan?
