Due to the success of the lateral puzzles in the "A riddle" thread, it seems appropriate to start a lateral thinking puzzle thread.

A rule of thumb to follow would be to allow those who do not know the answer to figure it out for themselves. If you happen to know the answer, please keep it to yourself and let the others have the fun.

Please feel free to start one at any point. It is not necessary to wait for one to finish before starting another one.

Have fun!

Inwardly sighing - this obviously wasn't going to be simple - you ask Mrs Smith some more questions:

"Did you notice anything about your attacker?"

"Were you at home when you were attacked?"

"Was it the man who raped you who gave you that black eye?"

"Did you notice anything about your attacker?" {ATTACKER? IF YOU WANT TO CALL HIM THAT, THEN YES}

"Were you at home when you were attacked?" {YES I WAS AT HOME}

"Was it the man who raped you who gave you that black eye?" { NO}

Just then Constable Spike enters your office with the two men.

Constable Spike announces who the two men are to the Inspector. Then the interrogations continues:

"Mrs. Smith, is this man, Mr. Smith, your husband?"

"Mrs. Smith, do you know Mr. Brown?"

"Mrs. Smith, did either of these men give you the black eye?"

"Mrs. Smith, were you raped?"

"Mrs. Smith, did the person who committed the rape just enter the room?"
