Looking to put your critical thinking skills to the test? Look no further. We have a word puzzle that is sure to stump even the most masterful logicians. Presh Talwalkar, a former student of economics and math at Stanford, designed and posted this word game to his YouTube channel, MindYourDecisions.

Three students—Albert, Bernard, and Cheryl—receive a piece of paper with a different letter written on it. Each letter is included in the secret word, which is one of the words on the board.
