Does anyone really read these comments? I don't think so. Not even the employees of the reader. Last week two comments were posted explaining the correct answer to the parking lot brainstorms puzzle and no actions were taken to correct their error. Once again the correct answer is 42. Move 41 would not get the car out of the lot because one move equals one car length. The car needed to move two car lengths to exit the lot.
If we disregard the rules, then why not hook the black car up to a crane? Out in one move. How are we suppose to know which rules apply and which rules we can ignore?
The Reader needs to do the right thing and reward people with the correct answer and not just people with the wrong answer.

What is BTB? I was checking to see if someone from the Reader would respond. So far, no good.

“Lock of Lots" Brainstorms:

"How many moves will be required to extricate the car and drive it from the lot?"

The correct answer is indeed 41 moves: 13 DOWN – 14 DOWN – 11 RIGHT – 12 RIGHT – 18 UP – 19 UP – 24 UP – 34 UP – 33 RIGHT – 28 DOWN – 29 DOWN – 15 DOWN – BLACK CAR RIGHT – 8 DOWN – 9 DOWN – 10 LEFT – 16 UP – 17 UP – BLACK CAR RIGHT – 15 UP – 28 UP – 29 UP – 33 LEFT – 34 DOWN – 35 DOWN – 24 DOWN – BLACK CAR RIGHT – 16 DOWN – 17 DOWN – 2 DOWN – 3 DOWN – 4 LEFT – 5 LEFT – 18 UP – 19 UP – 11 LEFT – 12 LEFT – 13 UP – 14 UP – BLACK CAR RIGHT AND OUT.

Count ‘em.
