  • 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

    • Kiran Tripathi

      Wow superb ……..
      Well done guys

  • 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 🙂

        • Ryan Ulrich

          I guess you can just consider it suffocation rather than drowning because fish have gills, not lungs. Therefore they cannot die by having their lungs flood with water since they have none, which would make drowning impossible.

    • Aditya Sunkara

      But then they died because of lack of oxygen or asphyxia, not because of drowning.

  • Firehaze

    Fish can swim backwards? (0.0)

  • Envy

    Some of these are pretty silly. :/

  • Birendra Pratap

    • Bam Leonti

      who has 100 pounds of rocks and feathers anyways

    • 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.

    • Lorrie Bensky Smith

      Uh, no. It just says feathers.

    If someone said (I am lying) is he lying or saying the truth?
    and don’t try saying both because you can’t lie and say the truth in the same time

    • Amanda

      It can be either way.
      You can say your lying and actually be lying or you would be telling the truth.
      you can say your lying and be the truth because you would be lying but then after you said it it became the truth.

    So who did the right thing among John, Mike, and Sarry?
    John, Mike, and Sarry were doing their homework together, and there was a quite difficult math problem. Then they all provided their own solutions.
