Test your logic with this week’s Accenture conundrum
By: Accenture Recruitment

Every few weeks we like to ask graduates a challenging question to flex your mental muscles. This week’s challenge will make you flip:

There are twenty coins sitting on the table, ten of which are currently heads and ten are currently tails. You are sitting at the table wearing a blindfold and gloves and are able to feel where the coins are -- but cannot see or feel if they are heads or tails.

You must create two sets of coins. Each set must have the same number of heads and tails, and you can only move or flip the coins.

How do you create two even groups of coins with the same number of heads and tails in each group?

If you think you have the solution, email us at with the subject line “Accenture coin challenge.” Include your answer and reasoning and, if you solve the puzzle and provide sufficient justification, you may be featured in our ‘Greater Than’ leader board next month.
