IS it possible for Mary to reach for only 1 marble, look at it and determine which box is which?

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, March 4, 2008 at 9:24pmI don't think so. No matter which one marble she pulled out, she still wouldn't know which of two boxes it was in.

I Googled this problem -- but didn't find any sites that met the criteria you've set up.
