Tricky brainteaser challenges puzzlers to spot the lost engagement ring in a vegetable patch

Have you checked the garden? A new brainteaser has been designed to highlight the most common place that rings are lost.

Created by jewellers William May, puzzlers have been challenged with spotting a lost engagement ring in a thriving vegetable patch, including carrots, a wheelbarrow, flowers, various insects, fences, a shovel, and multiple rabbits.

The designers of the puzzle claim that on average it takes players over a-minute-and-a-half to spot the ring, with 20 seconds being the quickest time that it has been found.

But, do you think you can beat the record?

William May surveyed 1,000 people who had previously (or almost) lost a ring to discover the most common places before creating the mind-boggling puzzle.

They discovered Brits are most likely to lose their ring while gardening, closely followed by seaside trips to the beach. 

And 12.4 per cent have lost a ring on holiday, while 11.5 per cent have misplaced the jewel while cleaning.

Other scenarios mentioned in the survey included at work (8.2 per cent), shopping (6.3 per cent), a public restroom (5.5 per cent), in the car (4.9 per cent), down a drain (4.4 per cent) and cooking (2.7 per cent).

If you’re struggling to solve the puzzle, try taking a closer look at the sprouting carrots on the right hand side of the graphic. 

The missing ring is nestled beneath the stem on a carrot near the furthest sunflower on the right. 

Another brainteaser sweeping the web gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘mouse trap’.

The colourful graphic, designed by UK-based distance learning provider Oxbridge, challenges puzzlers to spot the real mouse hiding among the computer mice – and it may just be the trickiest one yet.

The creators have revealed that the current record stands at an impressive 15 seconds. So, do you think you can do any better?  

 

For those receiving their A-Level results today, Oxbridge founder Matt Jones commented: ‘If your grades are higher than you expected, then I would strongly recommend looking at UCAS’ adjustment scheme to check if you might be able to ‘level-up’ your course or university.

‘Good news too if your grades are lower than expected; there are fewer 18-year-olds [going to university] this year than in other years so the UCAS clearing scheme should hopefully have more options available too.’ 

So, are you still struggling to find the real mouse concealed within the school essentials? If you answered ‘yes,’ then try looking towards the top right-hand side of the image. 

For those who give up, scroll down where you’ll find the answer circled in black.

Below another busy brainteaser challenges you to find the bumblebee buzzing among the flowers – and it is much trickier than it first appears.

Creators have revealed that the current record stands at an impressive 63 seconds – so, how long will it take you?
