This is the ninth puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the crystal glass. In order to solve this puzzle, you must determine which sketch the restaurant owner is unhappy with.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    "This design is preposterous!"

    The owner wasn't angry because the design was hard to assemble. He was upset because one design was physically impossible to replicate in real life.

Hint Two
    A and C could probably be pulled off with steady hands and a lot of patience.

Hint Three
    One design, while perfectly natural when drawn out in 2-D, stacks the glasses in a way that is impossible to create in reality.

    On paper, each cup is represented by single bent line, but real glasses have a rim on the top and walls of a set thickness.

[edit] Messages

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Why do you suppose a simple drawing made the restaurant owner so mad?

[edit] When Completed

Exactly right!

The restaurant owner was talking about sketch D. If you look closely, you can see that the first and second row of glasses couldn't possibly be arranged in the manner depicted.

The simple 2-D sketch didn't take into account the rim of the glass.

[edit] Solution

The restaurant owner is unhappy with sketch D.

[edit] Progress

305 Picarats and 33 Hint Coins.
