Three PebblesThis week we're evaluating.

Game:  There are 5 random words below.  Your aim is to identify which is the simplest or which is the most complex. Remember to explain your choice.

  • fertiliser
  • crown
  • encyclopedia
  • wig
  • stretcher

Challenge:  For extra challenge do both the simplest and most complex.

Strategy:  Simplicity and complexity play an important role in the running of most things. Sometimes things are simple on the outside yet that simplicity is supported by amazing complexity underneath.  Sometime the opposite.  Sometimes complexity presents opportunities for simplicity.
