SPOILER Solution to Lalad's Can You Solve This

    One point for every closed loop you can shade in.

    That explains why we disagree, doom.

    My solution was one point for every circular/oval shape you can shade in, which would mean that 1029 = 2, but nope=1 and yes= 0. Applying this rule to names would mean Lalad=0 and doomzebra= 2 as the shapes in the other letters are two sided.

    Very unlikely that young children would pick up on the nuances of the shape of the closed loop

    I too thought it would have to be circular shapes, as I doubt pre-schoolers would be able to differentiate ovals from circles or semi-circles, rather than 'close loops'.

    Probably not - but the original puzzle only included numbers, hence my interpretation.

    If you extend it to words, then yes, the closed loops interpretation works better.

    And very unlikely they'd be able to answer the question at all if it had been written using a stencil font.
