A. Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe and close the door.

This question was to see if you tend to do things in an overly complicated way.

Question 2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Jack, the question was how to put an elephant into "a refrigerator", not "the refrigerator". I would argue that "a refrigerator" represents the set of all refrigerators, not just the subset of refrigerators with giraffes in them. Had the questions instead referred to "the refrigerator", that would make it possible that the second question, "How do you put an elephant into THE refrigerator", could be inferred to mean "the refrigerator from question 1". However, the lack of specificity in the question makes the inference unnecessary and therefore the question has multiple answers.

Clearly the questions are phrased in a general way while expecting specific answers, which is misleading. The question is vague, the inference is fallacious, and the question is specious. It is best to avoid answering such illogical questions.

Giraffe doesn't taste very good after 3 days, should probably throw it out. And everybody knows elephant should be frozen.

No, you are wrong, Giraffe should be hung for a week like beef.

Question 3 was,
The Lion King is hosting an animal conference.
All the animalss attend except one.

The elephant can't attend 'cause he is frozen. The giraffe can't attend because he was thrown out after 3 days.

Well. Fridges don't freeze. So that puts the elephant out of the frame.
And to hang a giraffe. Who has that high a ceiling?
