15 Tricky Riddles That Will Give Your Brain A Workout.
Everything Is Pink
Mrs. Rose's favorite color is pink. She even has a bungalow completely covered in pink. Everything's pink! The walls, carpet, appliances were all different shades of pink. So what color are the stairs?
Answer: If you said pink, you were wrong. Bungalows don't have stairs! So the answer is no color!
Take Your Medicine!
You're not feeling well, so you decide to go to the doctor. He hands you three pills and instructs you to take one every half hour. How long will it take you to take all of your medicine? Hint: It's not 1.5.
Answer: It only takes one hour! The first one you take right away. The second a 1/2 hour after that and then a 1/2 hour later, you take the third.
What's All The Fuss A-Boat?
The boat you're on has a ten-foot ladder hanging off the side. The bottom rung reaches the water's surface. The tide rises six inches every hour and the ladder's rungs are a foot apart. How long until three rungs are under water?
Answer: The boat rises when the tide does, so it never happens. Tricked you!
What Color Is My Hat?
There are four prisoners. They were told that the first man who shouted out the right color of his hat would be set free. They're not allowed to talk to each other or remove their hats. The only thing they're allowed to do is look in front of them. They're told there are two black hats and two white ones. Who's going free?
Answer: Man three and four can't see anyone's hats. The first man can see one white hat and one black hat, but knows he could be wearing either. The second man can see one black hat and he knows the first man can see his hat. If the second and third men were both wearing black hats, the first man would've already yelled that he had a white hat. So that could only mean that he was wearing a white hat!
To Brighten Your Day
You enter a dark room with only one match. The room is completely empty except for a newspaper, an oil lamp, and some kindling wood. Which object do you light first? Give it your best shot!
Answer: Well, to get any of the things lit, you have to light the match first! That one was a tricky one.
