This is the thirty-ninth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Agnes. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which shape cannot be drawn with one single line.

Contents

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Each picture should be composed of lines that meet at different points.

    With these pictures, if you find a single line that runs out beyond the others, you know you have to start your drawing there.

    Try tracing the answer out yourself.

Hint Two
    Some points may be the convergence point for several lines. You need to think hard about which line to take in and out of the point in order to make the sketches work.

    If your pen is entering a point formed by an even number of lines, you will always be able to leave the point via another line.

Hint Three
    Using Hints One and Two, it's actually quite easy to draw these shapes out yourself.

    Make sure that you start drawing the shape from a point that touches an odd number of lines. Don't forget, one is also an odd number.

[edit] When Failed

Give it another go!

It looks like you should be able to draw all of them in one line, doesn't it?

Don't be fooled.

[edit] When Completed

Nicely done!

When examining a picture like this, the key to spotting a fake is looking at the areas where multiple lines intersect. When looking at these areas, take note whether the number of lines running through a given point are odd or even.

If all intersections contain an even number of lines, or if there are two intersections that contain an odd number of lines, you should be able to draw the picture in one line.

[edit] Solution

The image on the top-right cannot be drawn with one stroke.
