A family lives in a large tower apartment building, 10 floors high. Every day their son takes the elevator from the family’s apartment on the 10th floor....

1- You planted sunflower seeds in your back garden. Every day, the number of flowers doubles. If it takes 52 days for the flowers to fill the garden, how many days would it take for them to fill half the garden?

2- A man was walking in torrential rain. He had no umbrella, no hood, and he didn’t even try to keep thewater out. But when he arrived home, there wasn’t a single wet hair on his head. Why?

3- My son was playing with a book and tore out pages 7, 8, 100, 101, 222 and 223. How many pages were torn out?

4- If:

2 + 2 = 44

3 + 3 = 96

4 + 4 = 168

5 + 5 = 2510

Then:

6 + 6 = ?

5- A family lives in a large tower apartment building, 10 floors high. Every day their son takes the elevator from the family’s apartment on the 10th floor to the ground floor and goes to school. When he returns in the afternoon, he uses the elevator to get to the fifth floor, and then uses the stairs for the remaining five floors. Why?

6- You are driving a bus. At the first stop, two women get on. The second stop, three men get on and one woman gets off. At the third stop, three kids and their mom get on, and a man gets off. The bus is grey, and it is raining outside. What color is the bus driver’s hair?

Answers:

1- It would take 51 days. If the number of flowers doubles every day, half the garden would be full the day before, on the 51st day.

2- This man’s hair wasn’t wet because he was completely bald.

3- Taking a look at the riddle, the boy ripped out page numbers 7 and 8, which are both opposite sides of the same page. Page 99-100 is the second-page while 101-102 is the third page. 221-222 is the fourth page and 223-224 is the final page. So, the boy only ripped out five pages.

4- The missing number is 3612. The answer is the number multiplied by itself and then the number added to itself. Six multiplied by six is 36, and six plus six is 12.

5- Because he cannot reach the buttons higher than five.

Whatever color your hair is! Remember, you are the bus driver!
