  • valli

    can any one tell me what is the answer for this tricky question ??
    1 rabbit + 1 rabbit + 1 rabbit = 12kg
    1 mouse + 1 rabbit = 5 kg
    1 pig + 1 mouse = 99kg
    if 1 mouse + 1 rabbit + 1 pig = ??? what is the answer

    Not 105?

    • Ematooooo

      r= rabbit
      m= mouse
      p= pig
      The answer is 103

    • Arif Hafesji


    • Firehaze

      I think it means:
      1 rabbit + 1 rabbit + 1 rabbit = 12 kg
      therefore 1 rabbit may be 4 kg’s
      1 mouse + 1 rabbit = 5 kg
      since 1 rabbit = 4 kg’s then 1 mouse may be 1 kg
      1 pig + 1 mouse = 99 kg
      now since 1 mouse is = to 1 kg, then 1 pig may = to 98 kg’s
      so then it could be:
      1 mouse (1 kg) + 1 rabbit (4 kg’s)+ 1 pig (98 kg’s)= 103 kg’s

      though I’m not really sure

  • Lucy Lau

    1. You have a match and you enter a wagon with a candle, a lamp and a fireplace. Which one do you light first? Your match.

    2. A family lived in a round hut. The father came back from work and found the mother dead. The first said he was watching television, the second said he was drawing,the third one said he was reading in a corner. Who did it? The youngest, because it’s a ROUND hut, no corners!

    3. A farmer had 752 sheep and took one shot that got them all. How did he do it? He took a panoramic view!

  • Luxyrion

    Number 17 is wrong. I think. Because it is legal to marry your widows sister so the answer should be yes. The question is posed in the form that asks if it is legal. Not if it is illegal.

    But I have been wrong before

    • Heather Wahlquist

      You are so funny, your comment reminds me of something I might conjure…Dear Luxyrion, you missed the whole point all together. Hahaa…If the man’s wife is a widow -Then, he is DEAD. The legalities are irrelevant. Dead people can’t marry, is the joke. Smiles

      • Firehaze

        Haha lol

  • John Smith

    the fish one is incorrect because they actually can drown. and no, it’s not from swimming backwards as someone here mentioned…fish need oxygen to survive.

    • Firehaze

      I don’t get what you’re actually saying but fishes cannot drown because they were created in a way they wouldn’t drown, by that I mean that fishes were made to swim in water therefore they cannot drown. But your point could also be taken into consideration, but they never said what TYPE of fish they were talking about so it could have also been a deep sea fish, for example the fang-tooth fish. So a deep sea fish wouldn’t possibly swim 6,500 feet away from where he lives just to get oxygen…….so yeah…..(-_-)……

      • Daniel

        No, he is correct, but you weren’t far off either. In fact, oxygen dissolves in water, and when there is not enough oxygen in the water, they drown, as such, fish can drown, and many have. Why? Because they are inhaling water, which doesn’t have sufficient oxygen to allow them to live (through cellular respiration and what not) , and therefore die as a result.

        Just like with humans, we’re not essentially dying immediately because of the excessive intake of water, quite the opposite, it’s the fact that it results in us not being able to absorb any oxygen into our bloodstream (through our lungs, into our capillaries, which then travels around the body allowing for a process called cellular respiration to occur).

        So, alas, like I said before, the commenter who said they can die from drowning is correct. But I can see your point too, and it was a good observation never the less on your part.

        Also, please correct me if I am in any way wrong about the human part, as I’m sure there are other factors into why we die so quickly from drowning (not just the lack of oxygen in our bloodstream).

        • Firehaze

          Yeah I believe that theory is also correct x)

          • Cirtap

            Fish don’t drown, without oxygen they choke.

          • Firehaze

            Huh? If there is no oxygen, then the fishes will drown in the water xD

          • Lillie Caiger

            Yeah they do.

        • Bam Leonti

          a dolphin is a fish. it breathes oxygen. they have twelve fish (dolphins) and six drown (bc they had no oxygen) how many are left. 6! dolphins will drown without their oxygen.

          • Snorlax

            Dolphins are mammals……

      • Lillie Caiger

        Actually, you’re wrong. Fishes can drown. If you hold a fish underwater for long enough, they can actually run out of oxygen and die, just like humans.

        • Firehaze

          Yeah I know that xD
          I’m just saying that they didn’t say what type of fish it could have been. For example:clown fish’s need oxygen to survive and have access to that since they are near the waters surface however a deep sea creature such as the Fang-tooth fish doesn’t have access to that oxygen since it lives 6,500 feet below so they probably evolved in a way where they don’t have to swim 6,500 feet up to the surface just to get oxygen. My point is that we all have different opinions and answers to the riddle, scientifically and generally 🙂

          • Nicholas

            fish dont go above the surface of the water to get oxygen. they get it from the oxygen that is diffused into the water.

            the fang tooth fish
            -commonly seen between 2 and 5000 meters.
            -has gills and needs oxygen to survive
            -1000 meters is the oxygen minimum zone….no sea creature has to swim to the suface for oxygen

            “My point is that we all have different opinions and answers to the riddle, scientifically and generally”

            —-your point is based off of ignorance. and you cant have a different point on a scientific fact without proof of research. smh why the stupidity? i mean you have google for fuck sake…use it

          • Sabrin Awel

            i seriously can’t understand you..well yeah, i agree with you about how the whole page is a total mess and that all stuff…but you don’t have to be that harsh…people won’t accept whatever you say with that altitude you have…even if what you are saying is totally ryt!! i hope you don’t get me wrong… but these type of comments may affect people in a negative way and may even cause them to commit suicide due to d/t reasons…i hope got my point..

          • Nicholas

            hey bro shut the fuck up please. it doesnt matter if people accept it or not. im stating facts. if you want to deny them, then your a dumb ass. im tired of these stupid fucking comments all over the place. start researching the topic before you submit a post…..thats my main problem. if you doont know enouph on the subject to have an opinion, then your post is called bullshit. i dont give a fuck about anyone that commits suicide…..am i supposed to be some kind of saint that cares about everyone? i care about me and thats it.
            go spit your trash somwhere else and maybe kys cunt.

          • poopytimefunshapes

            Nicholas you’re a jerk i hope you kill your self. these people are saying their opinion maybe your “facts” are opinions. I wish you would die and i wouldn’t give two craps about your death. If you had a aquarium full of fish, they will need to go to the air for water. Yep, facts too. Also, we don’t care. you go spit your trash somewhere. So, in conclusion, sometimes fish go to the surface for water, not in the ocean, but in a aquarium. “An overstocked aquarium—with too many fish polluting the water and competing for the same air supply—can cause low oxygen levels. … Another cause of low oxygen in an aquarium can be a lack of surface area”

          • Firehaze

            Sorry if I offended you in any way. I was just explaining my opinion out of what I had learned in school. You’re totally right and I can’t argue with that, but I didn’t base my point out of ignorance in any way possible and apologise if it did seem that way. Like I said, I was just giving my opinion.

          • Nicholas

            now you can go look up what ignorance means, LMFAO these idiots just dont stop

    • peng

      whats new and old at the same time?think size ..😂😂answer this if you can

  • Puppy Pilot

    28. A 100 pounds of feathers would be heavier. A 100lbs of bricks is just that, but with feathers you also have to bear the weight of what happened to all those birds. SO HA.

    What goes up but never comes down? Age.

  • Nicholas

    *A rooster laid an egg on top of the barn roof. Which way did it roll? (It didn’t roll – since when did roosters start laying eggs?) – doesn’t matter if the rooster CAN lay eggs….this is a hypothetical question in which the rooster DID lay an egg

    *If it took eight men ten hours to build a wall,how long would it take four men to build it? (No time at all it is already built.) – why would you even ask this question then? you obviously would only ask this as a hypothetical question.

    *If Mr Smith’s peacock lays an egg in Mr Jones’ yard, who owns the egg? (Peacocks don’t lay eggs, just peahens.) – doesn’t matter if the peacock CAN lay eggs….this is a hypothetical question in which the peacock DID lay an egg.

    *What goes up and down, but still remains in the same place? (Stairs! ) – False

    *How far can you walk into the woods? (Half way. After that you are walking out of the woods.) – False….whoever wrote this is clearly a moron. if the halfway point of the woods is the furthest distance you could walk into the woods, then then “half way” would be 1/4 of the way. all the way would be the half way point. poorly worded.

    *If there are 12 fish and half of them drown, how many are there? (12, fish don’t drown!) – False…fish can drown if there isn’t enough oxygen diffused in the water simpleton…..look it up. its very common knowledge.

    *Imagine you are in a sinking row boat surrounded by sharks. How would you survive? (Stop imagining!) – this just doesnt make any sense

    *How many times can you subtract 10 from 100? (Once. Next time you would be subtracting 10 from 90.) – if you put it this way, couldn’t i add 10 more, then subtract again….or just start with a new 100? foolish

    *How many times does the alphabet ‘a’ appear from 0-100. (None). – wtf is this?

    the rest of them make technical sense at least….only 2 or 3 of them have any viable degree of intelligence to them. i found that this article mostly irritated me, and made me think that alot of humans out there are complete morons.

    • Lillie Caiger

      “What goes up and down, but still remains in the same place? (Stairs! )” How is that false?
      “Imagine you are in a sinking row boat surrounded by sharks. How would you survive? (Stop imagining!)” It does.
      “How many times does the alphabet ‘a’ appear from 0-100. (None)” It’s true, learn your numbers.

      • Nicholas

        stairs do not go up and down…the people walking on them do. thats how its false.

        the reason the imagining sharks one doesn’t make sense it because this is supposed to be “tricky questions” not trick questions. and the answer is stupid as fuck…its implying that if i were to keep imagining the situation, i wouldn’t survive somehow. apparently that makes some kind of sense to you..#idiot

        and all i said to the alphabet one was “wtf is this?” because like the shark question….it means nothing and requires absolutely no brain power to find the answer.

        these questions are categorized incorrectly and its mainly because of the title of the post. it implies that you must use your brain/smarts to find the answers. i fail to see how those are “tricky questions and answers that will beat your brains out”. im sorry you felt a need to comment on this….it proves that you are one of the moronic humans that i mentioned in my previous post.

        think before you post a negative comment against someone. just like these questions, no brain power was used in your comment.

        • Matthew Boyanton

          Your’e a conceded know it all who’s obvious goal is to put other people down. Granted, some of the questions were worded poorly. This isn’t supposed to be an award winning novel though. It was simply a way to entertain people and I believe it achieved that goal. So quit being a dick nicholas.

          • Matthew Boyanton

            Also, i suggest you try incorporating optimism into what you obviously believe to be (based upon your enormous ego.) an incomprehensible vocabulary for an individual of average intelligence.

          • Nicholas

            hey calm down with the big words. big words dont make you any smarter….especially online with spell check and google. i see you like to use the word “obvious” alot…pretty ironic coming from someone so delusional.

            ok so lets break your very vague question down captain obvious. your suggesting to me that i should (put optimism into a vocabulary that cannot be understood.) there are a few ways your questions could go, but thats what i got out of it.

            heres my answer to your suggestion in case im correct, captain oblivious.
            1. wtf are you even talking about? where is this vocabulary? i thought we were discussing the issue of these questions….not all of them are vocabulary issues.

            2.why would i put optimism in it? oh and how could i? definition of optimism – “hopefulness and confidence about the future or the successful outcome of something.” – of course i cant feel optimistic about the future of this article or its questions. the words are already written, and there is already an outcome. you probably meant one of the synonyms for optimism….im a realist, not an optimist. i live in the real world, where mistakes are made, and people get pissed off, and articles get ridiculed for their lack of content. lmfao.

            ok now, im not really sure what the fuck your trying to do here. im pretty sure i get to have an opinion on this article….you are all berating me for having a negative experience with this lmfao. you must all be liberals. use your brain and look at my post please. tell me that im not technically correct. dont be mad at me because im “smart” or a “know it all”. i honestly dont see how im ruining this article for anyone. its complete shit in the first place. are you mad that you learned something from my post, and now you cant enjoy these questions anymore because you actually understand them? “oh my brain hurt dadday….you makin me learn st st st st stuff”

            get the fuck out of here kid. your probably 12 anyway…keep fuckin around and you gonna get that dick sucked from the back.

          • Nicholas

            thats funny af. i had no goal when i posted my first comment. this article simply pissed me off by not living up to my expectations. and the responses to my post have been moronic. im glad you simpletons can be so easily entertained by complete bullshit. this is obviously a “no thought” click bait post……and your too dumb to see it. your comment was invalid the moment you called me a “know it all”, so go fuck yourself Matthew Boyanton.

        • KIRA COLE

          I fail to see your use of proper grammar or English. Capital I means that ‘I did, said, meant, blah blah blah.’ So please use it correctly and stop being so arrogant. Did your mother teach you no manners, Nicholas?

    • Wolfgalaxy

      I hate when these “smart” people ruin trick question pages…

      • Nicholas

        Thats my point…they are not trick questions lol. They may have tricked you, but thats just because your not “smart”.

        I think your missing the core of what im saying. The questions that i did not name…like question #1, is a perfect example of a trick question. Im not saying that all “trick” questions are shit. Im saying that if you really look at the ones that i listed, they either don’t make sense, are poorly worded, or are incorrect…trick questions are about logic, and missing factors. If your not putting logic into the question or having some unknown factor that makes you really think, then how can it be a trick question?

        You should hate the dumb people that make these pages with questions like this. And you should probably touch up on your general education. You probably don’t even know what a factor is. smh

        Now that I taught you a few things, go read the title and description of the post agian, then come back and tell me its not misleading.

        • KIRA COLE

          It is misleading, but that doesn’t mean you have to ruin the fun of it! You wouldn’t like it if someone spoiled a movie or book you liked because it wasn’t ethical or accurate. It’s all in the eye of the beholder. If one person thought it was cute, you might’ve thought it was ignorant, I don’t know. What I do know is you’re completely ruining it for anyone who does like it.

    • Nicholas

      please keep arguing with me dummies i think its funny anyway. im so glad that im a know it all that ruins the peasants shitty games. please show me how many dumb fucks are in this world….lets go just comment with a “here” or whatever the fuck you want. just remember that your speaking to a GOD you lil sluts.

  • Hemanth Kumar

    If there r 10 birds on a tree and a man comes and shoots a bird, So how many birds will be there on tree..???

    • Nicholas

      depends on what “r” is, also did the bird land in the tree, or on the ground? too many unknown factors, but the rest of the birds are gone for sure. that is probably the core of your riddle, huh? trash
