English contest 3: the farmer and the animals is finished

Let’s see. The riddles was

There is a farmer and he has 3 things to take with him across the river.

The 3 things are a wolf, a chicken, and a bag of hay. The wolf and the chicken can’t be together because the wolf eats the chicken. The chicken and the hay can’t be together because the chicken eats the hay. The farmer can only transport 1 thing at a time. How does he get all the things across the river?

And the answer is:

Move the chicken first. Leave the chicken in destination 2. Go back to destination 1, and take the hay to destination 2. Drop off the hay at destination 2, but travel back to destination 1 with the chicken. Leave the chicken at destination 1, and move the wolf at destination 2 and leave with the hay. Go back to destination 1, and move the chicken to destination 2. Now all three have been moved to destination 2 without one eating the other.

Adrià has got 7 points again, Joel Recio, Marina and Marc have got 5 points and Elif, Núria and Júlia have got 1 point.
