The image attached to the post reads “Which one of these four tiles could not be used to cover a floor if you had an infinite supply of them? Flipping them over is allowed.” So the rules are that the tile should not overlap and cannot be resized.

The fun teaser was shared on the Reddit sub “r/puzzles” by user “endersgame_reviewer.”

Here's how Redditors responses to the brain teaser:

The comment section responded with various responses:

Some questioned with “Discussion: I am assuming you can not overlay the tiles.” To which the original poster responded with “yes, you cannot”

Another comment focused on the solution “There's no way that N would work. The arrow (assuming proper dimensions) can be lined up end to end, and then again the other way. Triangles can be tessellated into parallelograms and then put into rows. The L shape can be doubled up into a rectangle, and then the rest is obvious. There's just no way that N would work.” To which the original poster replied with “that is the correct answer”
