Do You Think You Are Good In Solving Riddles?

Do think you are really good in solving riddles

If you do, then play along with me,

We'll do it this way - "I'll give a riddle, and then someone will try to solve it, when the riddle has been solved, I'll post another, and then it'll go on and on''.

So lets roll: o:

1. The people who make it don't want it. The people who buy it don't use it. The people who use it don't know it. What is it?

hello everyone ,

One more for the Pals ,

You've got ten piles of ten coins each (each looking excatly the same), one pile consist of counterfeit coins, the real coin weighs 1grm, the counterfeit weighs 0.99grm. You've got a measuring scale where you can load as many coins as you want, BUT ONLY ONCE! With only one weigh, how will you know the pile that is consisting of counterfeit coins?

should have picked one, you don't give multiple answers while answering a single question.

anyways

There was a dude that had 2 roosters! He went to check on them and found out that they laid 100 eggs! So he sold them for 1000 dollars! How much was each egg?

Look at the question about 'why do chickens cross the road'. Peeps were busy scratching head when a 3yrs old will give d correct answer. So simple! Don't u think?

Now no2,

it's not 30mins l8r @ 3:30 because as d minute hand is moving, d hour hand is also moving! Oh. . .u didn't c dat, abi?

Now for no3

i may ask dem d way outta d forest. Even if i enter an abyss i am 'somehow' outta d forest. How about that?

So, never count out sum fellas answer!

Mr Chykason, the essence of riddles is to confuse or confound you. It is not a normal question where you use mathematics or bland logic to solve. You have to use your wits to unravel the confounding factor in the question.

For question 1 everyone will be tempted to just say 4 miles afterall the woods is 4 miles long but the confounding factor here is the definition of the word "woods". The author wants you to think he is talking about forest as woods when actually he is talking about timber. His aim is to make you fail and I think he succeeded, lol

For question 2, again the confounding factor is the exclusion of the seconds hand in the question. He obviously want you to think in terms of Hour and Minute hand thereby missing out the seconds hand which could make you fail the question. Even if he was only talking about Hours and Minutes hand you are still wrong cos the answer will have been 30 minutes cos that would have been the time taken for the minutes hand to go to d 6 on the clock (i.e. 3:30). But as I said earlier this is a RIDDLES and the answer is not meant to be direct.

As for the third question, what do you have to say about that. . . .More than you. . . . lol

@obinoscopy

wood doesn't mean only timber. It also means a forest/jungle.

So 1 is out. Go check ur dictionary, boy!

Take a look below.

[quote author=me4nija link=topic=19578.msg5532016#msg5532016 date=12664207

the hour hand and the minute hand is 90deg.

He ain't talking about the seconds hand. U get? So 2 is out! Don't bother about no 2. I'm 100% sure of my no 2 answer.

Your answer is wrong the answers are

1) 0 miles, becos the wood is not air and can't be passed through unless he wants to break the wood

2)15 seconds, becos the seconds hand always go an angle of 90 degrees every 15 seconds

3) Simple just ask the siamese twins to tell you what he told the previous person as the way out of the forest, take the opposite of whatever he tells you!

Am I right me4nija?
