A little bit of math – Answer

I was quite amazed by how many people got it. I spent half and hour on it, and when I finally got it, I felt like banging my head against the wall!

The trick to answering it is to read each letter aloud from left to right.

1
1 1
2 1
1 2 1 1
1 1 1 2 2 1

One
One One
Two One
One Two One One
One One One Two Two One

Still stumped?

One
One One
Two One
One Two, One One
One One, One Two, Two One.

For those fused tubelights that still haven’t got it – each line describes the previous line.

So, the next line would be

Three One, Two Two, One One
3 1 2 2 1 1

And after that

One Three, One One, Two Two, Two One
1 3 1 1 2 2 2 1

and so on.

Here’s a link to the complete GLAT. It’s quite an interesting read, with questions such as “This space is intentionally left blank. Please fill it with something to improve upon the emptiness.”
