Its called logic, so just try the most logic things u can think of..
I've sent in my answers and havnt gotten any posts or pms so i dont know if my answers are wrong or nobody has gotten to them yet.. although here are some things that are uber logical.
1. Look upstairs.
2. Turn them all on... none should be off in the first place.
3. Worry about something else.. like finding a new house lol.. wtf u need a light for?? you just got hit by a hurricane.
4. have somebody wait upstairs and yell down to you
5. Turn them all off.. not sure how this would help anything... But it would definetly save you some $$. Grin

*sigh* I honestly don't know how you guys can not have heard this one before. Anyway, something everyone is failing to see is that you need to use more than one of your senses to solve this one.

Its funny how we are posting to this when it was first put up around 2 years ago. Besides the point, its very easy to do this one. Read the first page of posts you should get it in no time

it is actually quite an easy answer if you know how think of it this way you got 2 fuses to play with an you can stay downstairs for aslong as you want? what happens if you leave a fuse on for a while?

I would like to clear up a few things from a profesional stance .

Number one , a fuse normaly doesnt get warm unless its under
serious load . Load is the state of witch power is bieng used .
Anytime a device or perticular electrical application like a lamp
in a lightfixture is drawing power from the source (the fuse)
it will be creating a load . Now the only time the source should
get warm is if its load is at maximum rating to that of witch the
source (fuse) is engineered to protect at . Witch in terms of National
Electrical code regulation that would be an excedance of 75% of total
amperage allowance . For example if you have a 15 amp fuse .
You are not allowed to have a maximum load exceeding 11.25 amps
to ensure there is no over heating witch in many situations is the
cause of a fire in residential applications . So if the amperage is
not exceeding this 75% allowance then the fuse should not heat up .

With how vague this scenario is there should be multiple answers !

If the answer has to do with warmth then the answer is logicaly wrong
acording to my professional experience in the electrical field !

Heres some questions that are relevant to the logic of this challenge :

How many lights are on this circuit ?
Are there any electrical application on the other two circuits ?
If there is what are these applications ?
If there is 10 lights on this circuit and all of the bulbs are 50w-75w
then i could see the fuse warming up enough to detect it !
But also if there is operating applications on the remaining two circuits
causing enough load then they will become warm as well thus ruling out
the warm factor !?
Did i leave all of the light switches in the on position to generate a load ?
If theres hypotheticaly no applications on the other two remaining
circuits then i can figure out witch circuit is the lighting circuit becuase
i will get an arc when i go to screw in the fuse due to the load thats
on it !
All very relevant pieces of information !

Actually, this is only the one kind of challenges, which I don't believe in hints with it!
It's all returns to you.

You have to think logically, to reach the most logical solution.
And the logical challenges on HBH, are really very easy to solve.
Most of them are general information, some imagination, and a few of math/physics booleans.

This is the only one i cant seem to figure out.

If you have 3 switches, you need to flip two.
then you check.
if the lights are still off, you know.

but if theyre on you now have 2 switches to choose from and you can't check.
which means 50/50 chance.

unless you want to do complicated scenarios, in which case i submit just flip them all and be done with it.
