Two rights out of 24 wrongs (Posted on 2005-07-27) Difficulty: 2 of 5
At a party, my wife set 24 place cards on our round table, but everybody sat down randomly, and nobody was in the right place.

My wife commented: "let's turn the table round, until at least two will be in the right place."

Can this always be so, or was it just a fluke?
