# Logical Riddle: What is the Correct Password to enter the Secret Club?

Hone your logical thinking skills with this riddle.

A spy wanted to get into a secret club for some information.

But to enter you had to know there’s a secret password.

He waits outside and spies on two members.

When Member 1 knocks on the door, the guard knocks back 6 times and the member replies with 3 knocks and he was let in.

When member 2 knocks on the door, the guard knocks 12 times and the member replies with 6 knocks and he was let in.

So the spy thought he had cracked the logic so he knocked on the door.

The guard knocked ten times and the spy replied with 5 knocks but he was not let in.

What was the correct secret password and what’s the logic behind it?

### Answer:

Answer: 3 knocks.

Explanation: You have to count how many letters are in the number of knocks from the guard.

So when the guard knocks 6 times – your answer would be 3 (as six has 3 letters.)

Similarly in case of 12 knocks – the answer will be 6 (as twelve has 6 letters.)

So when the guard knocks 10 times – the answer should be 3 (as ten has 3 letters.)
