Ans 1.) There are three people –a grandfather, a father, and a grandson. Therefore, the father is both a son (of the grandfather) and a father (of the grandson).


Ans 2.) Take the chicken over first. Go back and bring the grain next, but instead of leaving the chicken with the grain, come back with the chicken. Leave the chicken on the first side and take the fox with you. Leave it on the other side with the grain. Finally, go back over & get the chicken and bring it over.

Ans 3.) 3 socks. If the first sock is black, the second one could be black, in which case you have a matching pair. If the second sock is white, the third sock will be both black and match the first sock, or white and match the second sock.

Ans 4.) I am a coin.

Ans 5.) They are both in the middle of wa’T’er.

Ans 6.) The letters are the first letter of each of the twelve months. Therefore, the question mark should be replaced by February, the second month.

Ans 7.) Both of them are equal. A 1/2 multiplied by 1/4 is 1/8. Similarly, 1/4 multiplied by 1/2 is 1/8.

Ans 8.) By crossing out ‘SIX LETTERS’ the word left is ‘BANANA’.

Ans 9.) Four parts in two cuts are easy. Now just cut the cake horizontally (split the bottom and top part). This way, you’ll get 8 pieces of the cake with just 3 cuts.

Ans 10.) An ear of corn.
