Hello my dear candidates to Holmes’s assistant.
One of the skills you need is wit. Sometimes the solution to a problem needs an original point of view. This is an example.
Lord Fanshaw was having a statue of himself erected outside his country mansion, but a problem arose regarding the mounting of the statue on a pedestal, so His Lodship sent for Sherlock Holmes.
“You see, Holmes,” said Lord Fanshaw when the great detective arrived, “the statue weights five tons, and the only way it can be lifted is by a crane and two slings under the base. The problem is, how de we set the statue down on the pedestal and get the slings out?”
Holmes gave the matter some thought and came up with a solution in four minutes.
Can you find one?
I’m looking forward to hearing from you
