This is pretty obvious, looking at the number of plates and spoons on the blanket, i.e., 4. Also, there are 4 names on the duty list.

Answer #2) They arrived a few days ago.

This is clear from the cobweb that has been formed, as it takes the time to be spinned.

Answer #3) They got to the site by boats.

The oar leaning by the side of the tree points towards the answer to the question.

Answer #4) Yes, there is a town nearby.

There is a chicken that is roaming around the campsite. This shows that a town/village must be nearby.

Answer #5) The wind is blowing from the South.

The direction of the flag shows that the wind is blowing from the south. Also, the branches of the trees are generally bigger on the southern sides of the trees, happens normally in the Northern Hemisphere.

Answer #6) It is morning.

We have reached this answer, from figuring out the directions of east and west from the answer to question 5 and then worked out the time based on the shadows in the photo.

Answer #7) Alex went to catch butterflies.

This can be guessed by looking at the net that is behind the tent.

Answer #8) Colin was on duty yesterday.

You have to focus to get the answer to this tricky question. There are 4 people camping- Colin, Alex, Peter and James. Alex is catching butterflies. James is the one clicking photos because there is a tripod sticking out of the bag marked ‘J’. Colin is searching through a backpack marked ‘C’. All this points to the conclusion that Peter is standing by the cooking pot. Thus, Peter is on duty today and then according to the list, Colin must be on duty yesterday.

Answer #9) Today’s date is 8 August.

We have arrived at the date looking at the duty list, it must be 8th of some month. And it is 8 August because there is a watermelon on the picnic blanket and watermelons ripe in the month of August only.

We hope you enjoyed this tricky puzzle.
