Question 1: Is the red route shorter, or the blue route shorter?
Prize for guessing RED ROUTE:
Very good!! You can go and work for taxi company and write letters to answer customers complaints by telling them that its justifiable to take the red route. And tell the customer that the fare difference is due to the heavy traffic conditions on the road, which is SUCH logical justification for a taxi ride taken on 11.30pm on a Sunday night.
Prize for guessing BLUE ROUTE:
You will get to wait 1.5 weeks for an answer to your complaint email and after that be told that the taxi driver's error is only in not asking which route to take first before proceeding on the journey. No, he is not attempting to profiteer from taking a longer route! Of course not!
