Consulting cases can be roughly separated into three categories: business cases, estimating cases and brain teasers. As you can tell by its name, a brain teaser is a riddle or puzzle, which is designed to challenge your logical thinking. Solving brain teasers usually gives the interviewer clues about your potential skill as a future consultant, since combining logic and creative thinking is necessary in order to answer the riddle.
For most consulting employers it is common practice to use brain teasers as a means for assessing their applicants. The most important aspect for you however, is how you approach the problem, not necessarily giving a specific answer. This will help give your interviewer a clue, as to how successful you might be with actual cases.
