[hoodie] Easier in the Morning

Postby hoodie » Tue Feb 26, 2019 12:30 am

Because it is afternoon, John must deliver his document to three different people. If it were morning, he could have delivered it to just one.

Are all three in the same general location (e.g. same building)? Same organization? Business? Government? Military?

Is he giving them copies of the document? Are they signing it? Does he deliver documents like this regularly?

If it were morning, would the other two people be unavailable? Would the one person have more authority?

John = HAM?

So are there 3 documents? Just one? If the former, can he give the 3 documents to 1 person in the morning who will give them to the other 2? Is the person to which he could give the documents in the morning part of the group of 3 people to which he delivers in the afternoon?

Did something happen between morning and afternoon? Someone was born? Someone died? Someone moving? Someone having his birthday and entering legal age? Siamese twins relevant?

Are timetables relevant? Like until noon he could deliver to one and from noon on he could not? From 1 p.m. to one person? Relevant? Did he know in advance (e.g. the day before) that he should have delivered to more than one person in the afternoon? If so, that he had to deliver to 3 people precisely? Are admissions relevant? Are decisions been taken between morning and afternoon relevant (e.g. the firm fired one person in the morning and he needed to deliver the letter, but then other 2 were fired)? Are natural disasters/ boundaries relevant?

Did he deliver the documents personally? Are signatures relevant? Are the documents personal (containing personal data...)?

Hobbsicle:

Is he giving them copies of the document? Yes Are they signing it? No Does he deliver documents like this regularly? I am going to interpret "like this" to mean, documents of the same general nature. The answer is yes.

If it were morning, would the other two people be unavailable? No Would the one person have more authority? No


Earnest:


John = HAM? Yes

So are there 3 documents? Just one? 3 copies of one document. If the former, can he give the 3 documents to 1 person in the morning who will give them to the other 2? Is the person to which he could give the documents in the morning part of the group of 3 people to which he delivers in the afternoon? NO!

Did something happen between morning and afternoon? Yes Someone was born? Someone died? Someone moving? Someone having his birthday and entering legal age? Siamese twins relevant? None of these.

Are timetables relevant? Yes. Like until noon he could deliver to one and from noon on he could not? this. From 1 p.m. to one person? Relevant? Did he know in advance (e.g. the day before) that he should have delivered to more than one person in the afternoon? Not necessarily. He could have found out the same day. If so, that he had to deliver to 3 people precisely? He knew he had to deliver to 3 people. Are admissions relevant? No. Are decisions been taken between morning and afternoon relevant (e.g. the firm fired one person in the morning and he needed to deliver the letter, but then other 2 were fired)? No Are natural disasters/ boundaries relevant? No.

So 3 copies of 1 document to 3 different people in the afternoon and 1 copy of the same document to 1 person not belonging to the group of 3 in the morning right?

Are the 3 people related? Co workers? Friends? Are they a family? Strangers? Are they related by something that happened(e.g. an accident)? Is the 1 of the morning related to the other 3? Is the chief of the other 3?
Is death penalty relevant? Inheritance? Someone's death relevant? If so of one of the 4? The one in the morning?

Document = purchasing relevant? Bills? Receipts? Official documents? Related to the death of someone? Letters?

Are the 3 people related? Co workers? this Friends? Are they a family? Strangers? Are they related by something that happened(e.g. an accident)?

Is the 1 of the morning related to the other 3? Also a co-worker Is the chief of the other 3? No.
Is death penalty relevant? Inheritance? Someone's death relevant? None of these. If so of one of the 4? The one in the morning?

Document = purchasing relevant? Bills? Receipts? Official documents? Related to the death of someone? Letters? None of these.

Point of clarification: I know there is some variation in how the word "document" is defined. I am going with the Wikipedia definition: "A document is a written, drawn, presented, or memorialized representation of thought."

If he had delivered it in the morning, would the three people eventually have ended up with copies of the document?
Will the three people read the document? If he had delivered it in the morning, would the one person have read the document?

So it is not an official document right? It is more like a letter/ an order?

Are turns relevant? (E.g. in the morning there was the one in charge to receive letters/documents and deliver it to other co-workers?) Would the one in the morning make copies of the document? Is the fact of being co-workers relevant for: place of delivery? Turns?
Did they work in deliveries business as well? (E.g. they deliver flours? Pizzas?...)
Is the one that has to deliver the document a co-worker as well? Can we consider them all HAMs or HAFs?

Is the place of delivery the same in the morning and in the afternoon? The place of work? If so, is the person to which he could have delivered in the morning (can we call him A?) present in the same place of the other 3 both in the afternoon and in the morning? Would the puzzle change if she is? Same question In the morning alone and in the afternoon alone. Are airplanes relevant? Departures?

Guess: did he know precisely to who deliver the document in the afternoon? Did he deliver to 3 people just because he did not know the precise person to which he had to deliver (e.g. he knew just the last name eho belonged to 3 different people)? Can we assume he delivered the same exact document to the 3? Or maybe different parts of it to each one?
Had he delivered the document to just one of the 3 in the afternoon would it have been: unfair? Insufficient?
Would the puzzle work if he delivered to just one of the 3 in the afternoon and he honestly and without mistakes communicates the content to the other 2?

Had the 3 not the same authority/role of the one in the morning? Is the document published/share/spread among other collegues? Did the one in the morning see the document after it has been delivered to the 3? If so the next day?

Relevant the content of the document? Are these kind of documents common in their job? Are letters to Juliet/Santa relevant? Is the content: romantic? Order from the above? Thought about the service provided by them? An order of a client? News? Advertisement? Can the document be considered "personal"? Confidencial? Top secret? Military relevant? News reading?

Their job: relevant: army? Restaurant? Bank? Office? Clothing? Hotel? Cars? Means of transport? Internet? Technology? News? TV? Food? Police?

Earnest:

So it is not an official document right? I would not describe it as an "official document". It is more like a letter/ an order? Not this either. It is a written work

Are turns relevant? (E.g. in the morning there was the one in charge to receive letters/documents and deliver it to other co-workers?) I assume you are using the word "turns" to be synonymous with "shifts". And yes, shifts are very relevant, although your e.g. is not correct. Would the one in the morning make copies of the document? No. Is the fact of being co-workers relevant for: place of delivery? Turns? this
Did they work in deliveries business as well? (E.g. they deliver flours? Pizzas?...) No.
Is the one that has to deliver the document a co-worker as well? Yes. Can we consider them all HAMs or HAFs? Yes, any combination of these.

Is the place of delivery the same in the morning and in the afternoon? Irrelevant.The place of work? Yes. If so, is the person to which he could have delivered in the morning (can we call him A?) present in the same place of the other 3 both in the afternoon and in the morning? Only in the morning. Would the puzzle change if she is? Yes. Same question In the morning alone and in the afternoon alone. Are airplanes relevant? No. Departures?

Guess: did he know precisely to who deliver the document in the afternoon? Yes. Did he deliver to 3 people just because he did not know the precise person to which he had to deliver (e.g. he knew just the last name eho belonged to 3 different people)? No. Can we assume he delivered the same exact document to the 3? Or maybe different parts of it to each one? In crafting the puzzle, I assumed the former, but the latter would also work.
Had he delivered the document to just one of the 3 in the afternoon would it have been: unfair? Insufficient? this.
Would the puzzle work if he delivered to just one of the 3 in the afternoon and he honestly and without mistakes communicates the content to the other 2? All three require content from the document. It could be delivered via hard copy or soft copy via e-mail. I assumed hard copy for this puzzle, but it would work either way.

Had the 3 not the same authority/role of the one in the morning? Same role, no difference in authority. Is the document published/share/spread among other collegues? Intended for publication. Did the one in the morning see the document after it has been delivered to the 3? Not necessarily. If so the next day?

Relevant the content of the document? Yes! Are these kind of documents common in their job? Yes. Are letters to Juliet/Santa relevant? No. Is the content: romantic? Order from the above? Thought about the service provided by them? An order of a client? News? this-ish Advertisement? Can the document be considered "personal"? Confidencial? Top secret? Military relevant? News reading? this is closest.

Their job: relevant: Yes army? Restaurant? Bank? Office? Clothing? Hotel? Cars? Means of transport? Internet? Technology? News? TV? Food? Police? The words "Internet", "News", and "TV" are all associated with their profession.

Are they in the media? Is the document a press release? A news bulletin?

Does John deliver the document to the three people all at once? One at a time?
Is the delivery by hand? Through email?
Will the document be read out loud? Will it be copied?
