Faulty Puzzler - "Leisurely Vacation"


#1

The Leisurely Vacation puzzler from 10/6 as written has no single correct answer. The answer given is 10 days, but he could have been at the resort 20 days longer doing other things, or even just staying in his room reading, and it would still meet all the conditions that were stated.



The problem with the answer of ten days is that it makes two assumptions that were not actually conditions of the puzzler-- 1) that every morning he either slept in or played golf, and b) that every afternoon he either lounged by the pool or got a massage.
