Crack the three-digit code: a viral puzzle that only the most patient will solve

You need to identify the three-digit lock code using only a few clues.

  • Hint 1. In the set "682", one digit is correct and is in the correct position.
  • Hint 2. In the set "614", one digit is correct but is in the wrong position.
  • Hint 3. In the set "206", two digits are correct but are in the wrong positions.
  • Hint 4. It shows numbers that are not in the code: "738".
  • Hint 5. In the set "780", one digit is correct but is in the wrong position.

This is a really difficult task that requires logic, wit, and attentiveness. Scientists say that regular mental training will have long-term benefits and help reduce the risk of age-related neurological diseases, including dementia.

The correct answer

Thus, let's try to figure it out one by one.

682 has the correct number 2. It can not be 6 as it would contradict clues 2 and 3.

614 has the correct number 4. It can not be 6 because it has the same position as in condition 1. There are no other conditions for 4 that would fit this option.

206 has the correct numbers 2 and 0.

The digits 7, 3, 8, as it becomes clear from the hint, are not in the code.

780 has the correct number 0. Digits 7 and 8 are eliminated because they contradict the fourth hint.

The correct answer is 042.
