Pegless Painting Plummets! (Posted on 2005-03-29) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Can you hang a painting from two pegs, so that if you remove EITHER of the pegs, the painting will fall down?

Wedge the painting between the two pegs so that the pegs squeeze the painting from either side.

If either of the pegs is removed, there will no longer be enough tension to hold the painting in place.
