Pronounced as one letter, And written with three, Two letters there are, And two only in me. I'm double, I'm single, I'm black, blue, and gray, I'm read from both ends, And the same either way. What am I?
A group of campers have been on vacation so long, that they've forgotten the day of the week. The following conversation takes place.
Darryl: What's the day? I don't think it is Thursday, Friday or Saturday.
Tracy: Well that doesn't narrow it down much. Yesterday was Sunday.
Melissa: Yesterday wasn't Sunday, tomorrow is Sunday.
Ben: The day after tomorrow is Saturday.
Adrienne: The day before yesterday was Thursday.
Susie: Tomorrow is Saturday.
David: I know that the day after tomorrow is not Friday.
If onlyone person's statement is true, what day of the week is it?
It is Wednesday. If it was any other day of the week, more than one statement would be true.
To solve the riddle, evaluate each person's statement and write down what day it could be according to the statement.
David's statement indicates it could be any day of the week except for Wednesday. When you list the days that it could be according to everyone's statement, it turns out Wednesday is the day mentioned onlyone time.
Darryl: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday
Susie: Friday David: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday
Susan uses a toaster that has 2 slots. The toaster toasts one side of each piece of bread at a time, and it takes exactly 1 minute to do so.
If Susan wants to make three pieces of toast, what is the LEAST amount of time she needs to toast them on both sides?
She puts two pieces in the toaster, toasting one side of each. Then she flips one of them, takes one out, and puts the completely untoasted piece into the toaster. Finally, she takes out the toasted piece and puts the two half-toasted pieces of bread into the toaster for a minute and she's done.
Of no use to one
Yet absolute bliss to two.
The small boy gets it for nothing.
The young man has to lie for it.
The old man has to buy it.
The baby’s right,
The lover’s privilege,
The hypocrite’s mask.
To the young girl, faith;
To the married woman, hope;
To the old maid, charity.
What am I?
