This is the seventeenth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. To access this puzzle, you must interact with the umbrella. In order to solve this puzzle, you must choose the umbrella that matches the design of the broken one.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Let's start by comparing the handles. They all seem to have a J shape, although A has a more angular design. We can rule out A, then.

    What other differences can you find? How about the part directly above the bit we were just looking at?

Hint Two
    Next, compare the decorations on the handle guard just above the handle on each umbrella. C doesn't have any decoration, and you can't see D's. Is it hidden? You won't be able to know for sure, then.

    Hang on--which parts of your friend's umbrella were the most badly broken? Try counting those.

Hint Three
    Umbrella D has quite a lot of spokes. A lot more than the broken umbrella, that's for sure. That just leaves B and E.

    You can just make out a white polka-dot pattern on the broken umbrella, so does that mean you can rule out B, which has different colors? No, it doesn't. It's possible that the whole pattern on the broken umbrella is hidden from view.

Super Hint
    Take another look at the broken umbrella. Which part is the most visible? The inside.

    Looking at the inside of the umbrella, you'd be forgiven dor thinking the whole thing is patternless.

    Now take another look at B and E. Which umbrella looks completely different on the inside?

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

If you look carefully, you'll spot the parts that are clearly different.

[edit] When Completed


The answer is umbrella B.

A's handle is different, C's handle has no decoration, D has more spokes, and E has a design on the inside as well as the outside.

[edit] Solution

Umbrella B has the same design.
