Apparently the writer of this test thought he was intelligent...

However... If the giraffe fits in the refrigerator....  Why do you assume
that the giraffe must be removed in order to place the elephant in the
refrigerator....  And why would someone assume that there is in fact only
one refrigerator and that the elephant or Giraffe for that matter is not
capable of leaving the refrigerator on its own???  Or that the Lion King
conference is not being held in either the river or the refrigerator?????

And why is that all of the crocodiles leave the river to attend the Lion
King conference?  but no other elephants attend as one elephant is in a

And really if the river is inhabited by crocs... doesn't that by definition
mean they are in the river????

I don't think it is much of an intelligence test at all....

But.... I'm not a lawyer.
