apoorvk Group Title

\[\huge \mathbb{\color{#D32B05}{`AP㋛㋡RIDDLE!!`}}\] 8 year old Aseem looks out of his window at 10 PM and finds that it's pitch dark outside. Disappointed, he goes off to sleep. He wakes up all tired, 14 hours later (yes he loves to sleep :P), and slides open his window hoping to find bright daylight shining outside, but he is disappointed once again - it's still pitch dark! He is puzzled, angry and disappointed! Can you help explain li'l Aseem what's happening?

    P.S. - There were no eclipse forecasts, and he's very much near the equator all the time. There can be more than one reasonable answer to this situation, all I'm looking for is how imaginative we are - (doesn't require much out of the box thinking) :)

    haha lol. btw i just came with another abstract solution. This kid is so filthy rich, that he is on tourist trip in space, and ofcourse the space looks dark from outside the atmosphere due to absence of miniscule particles which diffract light! :P (space tourism is not a myth anymore btw)

    He / can survive if they wear the parachute 0.5 sec after the window broke. If he/she wears the parachute within 5 sec and then flies out, then there are chances of survival :P

    No they are just flotation devices. In fact parachutes aren't even provided in Business Class either (I was wrong) - they just get a life jacket sort of thing, while economy class has to make use of the 'foam' seat. Check this link http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080624233147AAGDzWT @dpaInc 'sorry' what for?
