Friends, the one u can see below is a puzzle designed by Google. It almost killed me wen i tried to solve, and unfortunately i could’nt solve. But the answer is pretty interesting. Pls break ur heads to reach the answer :).

A duck, pursued by a fox, escapes to the center of a perfectly circular pond. The fox cannot swim, and the duck cannot take flight from the water (it’s a deficient duck). The fox is four times faster than the duck. Assuming the fox and duck pursue optimum strategies, is it possible for the duck to reach the edge of the pond and fly away without being eaten? If so, how?
