There are two types of people in this world, those who enjoy doing riddles and those that don’t. Of course, even somebody who doesn’t enjoy a riddle does enjoy giving themselves a challenge every once in a while.
We also need to consider the type of riddle that we are dealing with. Some of them involve wordplay and it really is almost impossible to come up with an answer unless we know exactly what is going on behind the scenes.
Other riddles, however, are just difficult questions but the answer becomes obvious when we see it in print. I think that that is where these riddles fall in line.
Try the three riddles for yourself. They aren’t hard or tricky, you just need to know how to answer them with your brain and not with your instincts. The answers are on the next page.
