Hedge Fund Brainteasers: Which Do You Light First?

Which Do You Light First?

If having only one match on the freezing winter day, you enter the room which contained a lamp, a kerosene heater, and a wood-burning stove, which is you like 1st?  

The correct answer is . .   You light the match first.

See some questions are designed to deflect you away from the correct answer.  It’s kind of like when I was growing up, there was a question that the kids would ask, “If a rooster laid an egg on the top of a pointed building, which way where the egg fall?  And you kind of make the gesture of the steeple and while speaking and the hand gesture would deflect the audience from thinking about the rooster?  Roosters don’t lay eggs.  Chickens do.  

So, the correct answer to that one is roosters don’t lay eggs.  Chickens do.  It’s 1 of those tricky questions.  So back to this, you would light the match first.
