Soon Friday I set this puzzle…
The day before yesterday Edward was 17. Next year he will be 20. How can that be the case?
If you have not tried to answer it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.
This sentence was made on 1st January. Edward’s birthday is the 31st December. He was 17 the day before yesterday. He was 18 yesterday. He will be 19 this year, and 20 next year!
