Puzzle - Answer

A ship is docked in the harbour. Over the side hangs a rope ladder with rungs a foot apart. The tide rises at a rate of 9 inches per hour. At the end of six hours, how much of the rope ladder will still remain above water, assuming that 9 feet were above the water when the tide began to rise?

 [Ref: ZAUS]

Answer: Still 9 feet because the ladder will rise with the ship!
