[1ESO] Task 200420

You have to solve this brain teaser: A man has to cross a river with a fox, a chicken, and a bunch of grain. He has got a rowboat, and it can only carry him and one other thing. If the fox and the chicken are together, the fox eats the chicken. If the chicken and the grain are together, the chicken eats the grain. How does the man do it?

Vuestra tarea es resolver este rompecabezas utilizando vuestro ingenio …y practicando el Simple Present. Podéis empezar así: First, he takes…… Then he comes back…… Sabéis todas las palabras y estructuras necesarias, así que evitad usar el Google translate porque seguramente os saldrá una traducción penosa y no obtendréis una calificación positiva.

Write your answer down here as a commentary.

Deadline: Wednesday, 22 of April, at noon. After that time, I’ll upload your answers and the solution.

        Deadline
        was the 22nd and the answers were already published.
        Even though, that’s terribly bad: no subjects, no punctuation, no sense… not English.
        And, on top of all, you are not answering in the appropriate place!

  1. First, he takes the chicken and crosses the river, he comes back and takes the fox. He crosses the river again, leaves the fox and takes the chicken. He comes back, leaves the chicken and takes the grain. He crosses the river and leaves the grain with the fox. He comes back without anything and takes the chicken. At In the end he crosses the river with the chicken and already has everything on the other side.


    Quite well, but mind those mistakes.
    (And don’t let anyone copy your task, or else, BOTH will get a bad mark)

  2. To solve the man’s riddle, is that first he has to go to the chicken, then take the fox and pass it where the chicken is, then he takes the chicken and returns it to the side it was in, he takes the grain and passes it to the side where it isthe fox is, then he goes to the other side and takes the chicken to cross it, and thus he already has everything on the other side of the river.

    (Sorry for doing it wrong before)


    Mind those mistakes: don’t drop the subject.
    (Being honest is even more important than learning English)

    Google translations are very bad and you don’t learn anything that way. You could have written:
    First he takes the chicken. Then, he comes back. He takes the fox and goes back to the other side. He comes back with the chicken and takes the grain. He takes it where the fox is.
    And what about the chicken???

    Rather bad. You should put more interest and you can do it much better.

  15. first it passes to the hen then it passes to the fox and it turns with the hen it leaves the hen on the other side and it takes the corn with it and finally it passes to the hen.


    What about punctuation and capital letters?
    The farmer is a man, so you must use “he”, not “it”.
    You must never use a preposition (“to”) with a direct object.
    You should use the verb “take”, not “pass”.
    Please, pay more attention; you could do it better.

    A lot of suspicious spelling mistakes (all in bold).
    Fallos como “chiflen” por “chicken” no se explican como errores tipográficos; da la impresión de que estás COPIANDO y no sabes lo que copias… Pero tú no harías eso, ¿verdad?
