I think Einstein was wrong because I asked this question on the internet group almost everyone knows the answer. I tried it myself it took me 3 hours to solve it. Well, solving this riddle was very fun moment, I enjoyed a lot.

it took me 20 mins to solve it with the help of Excel. I agree it is not that tough problem that 98% people can't solve it.
May be people have become smarter in general since Einstein wrote this puzzle. Evolution!
