There was a farmer who had a fox, chicken, and a bag of corn and he had to transport them across a lake. The lake is too big to go around so he has to us a canoe but it only fits him and one item. How does he get them all across without one eating the other?

Rate This Submission

Please take the time to rate this writing once you have read it. Our ratings system allows people to know both how popular the writing is, and how well the general populous of the site thinks it is written. This also allows the writer to have feedback about their writing, so they know if they need to improve their technique, or if they're on the right track.

The system allows you to vote on several aspects on the writing. Refer to the help text below each aspect for an explanation. Consider the different aspects carefully, and submit your vote using this form. It will be instantly weighted with the other votes given.

Depending on the writing type, give your opinion on the overall plot if it is a story, or the concept of the writing if it is abstract such as a poem. Does it seem to make sense, strike a chord with you or seem a well chosen concept? Did the author stick to the concept or did they change mid-thought?
Did the author use words and descriptions that allowed you to visualize the scenes portrayed in the writing? Did the feelings of the work stir your emotions as you read it?
Were the words spelled correctly? Was proper punctuation and grammar used? Could you easily understand sentences or did you have to re-read lines several times to understand what was meant?
Depending on the writing type, how did the writing flow? If it's a story, did it have a smooth, easy to follow flow? Did the flow of events make sense? If it's poetry, did the author stick with the syllable flow for that writing type? Did the lines rhyme properly if a rhyming device was used?
Did the author use the same words over and over or did they use a broad vocabulary to get their exact point across? Could better wording be chosen then what they have used?

  • The farmer takes the bag of corn over and leaves it there and then he takes the fox over and leaves it there. The fox will not eat the corn so he goes back and retrieves the chicken and takes that over with him and drops it off at the other side of the lake. They are now all over and none are eaten. Tada!

    • If he takes the corn, that leaves the fox with the chicken, which equals poultry meal.
      I'd say he takes the chicken, returns, takes the fox, switches the fox with the chicken, returns with the chicken, switches the chicken with the corn, takes the corn, leaves the corn with the fox, returns, and takes the chicken. This way, at no point is the corn and chicken alone together, nor is the chicken/fox combo unattended.
