Lateral thinking questions are questions which you need to listen closely to in order to get the answer. They sound bizarre but are actually quite logical if you think enough about it and actually listen to the words in the question. In most cases the answer is in the question but is hidden in a whole heap of useless rubbish designed to distract you or in some cases the answer is very simple, but the questions leads you to look and think in a complete different direction.
These questions are fantastic as an ice-breaker or when used for listening exercises. Here are a few of our favorites. Click on the question to reveal the answer:
