This enigma is not easy and few Internet users have managed to find the right answer the first time! Come on, we try!
Here is an image on which we can see three boxes. Only one of these boxes contains a pair of red heels. In addition, each box is associated with an affirmation. Only one is correct, the other 2 are false.
The 1er image indicates that the pair of heels is in this box;
The 2th image indicates the pair of heels is not in this box;
The 3th image indicates the pair of heels is not in the 1ère box;
Considering all of these factors, can you tell which box actually contains the pair of high heels?
Although the puzzle seems complicated, it only takes a little logic to find the right answer. Everyone can play! All you need is a pen and a sheet of paper to analyze the image as it should.

2. A better memory.
3. The production of dopamine, the hormone of well-being, which helps to relax.
Have you managed to find the right answer? If you still have trouble solving this problem, let's look at it together.
Keep in mind that this puzzle is subject to two conditions. First, only one box actually contains the shoe and only one of the statements is true.
Let's start with the 1ere box; if we assume that the 1ere statement is correct, it means that the red high heels are there. However, as only one statement is true, it means that the 2 statement is false, which means that there are also shoes in the 2 box. Unfortunately, only one box contains the heels; the 1ère box is not the right answer.
If the statement under the 2th box is true, it means that the shoes are not in this box. However, as one statement is true, the others are false.
Thus, the statement under the box 1 shows that the pair of heels is not in the first box since it is false. This means that the shoes are in the 3th box.
If we go to the 3th box, the statement says that the shoes are in the 1er box, but that can not be the case, because we have just proved that no shoe is in this box. This leads us to conclude that the 2 statement is false, and that the shoe is in there!
The correct answer is the 2th box!
Let's take a look at the 3th statement. If true, it means that the shoe is not in the box 1ère. If we move to the 1er affirmation that indicates that heels are in the 1er box, we know that it is false, since we assume that the 3th statement is the only one that is true.
Therefore, the 2th affirmation is also false and this brings us to the same answer! The shoes are in the 2th box!
