Question Head Scratchers 2

1. Rearrange the letters in "OWONDER" to make one word.

2. I've got ten or more daughters. I've got less than ten daughters. I've got at least one daughter. If only one of these statements is true, how many daughters have I got?

3. It's the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh. What is it?

4. Little Nanny Etticoat, in a white petticoat, and a red nose; the longer she stands, the shorter she grows. What is she?

5. There was a green house. Inside the green house there was a white house Inside the white house there was a red house. Inside the red house there were lots of babies. What is it?

6. Does the Muslim religion allow a man to marry his widow's sister?

7. My author's uncertain yet my title's the same, I contain random text yet order's my aim. Read me one day and see my pages are totally bare. Try again another day and the words will be there. I'm not a book of magic although it may sound, I can predict the future, and inside, your life can be found. Move my eye, I become involved in lactic extraction. But that's just a clue , a minor distraction. What am I?

8. What crime is punishable when attempted but not when committed?

9. What question can someone ask all day long, always get completely different answers, and yet all the answers could be correct?

10. I am weightless, but you can see me. Put me in a bucket, and I'll make it lighter. What am I?

11. Pronounced as one letter but written with three, two different 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.

12. What do you call your father-in-law's only child's mother-in-law?

13. Four cars come to a four way stop, all coming from a different direction. They can't decide who got there first, so they all go forward at the same time. They do not crash into each other, but all four cars go. How is this possible?

14. A pipe, a carrot, and a couple of sticks are lying together in a field. Why?

15. A man is walking down a road with a basket of eggs. As he is walking he meets someone who buys one-half of his eggs plus one-half of an egg. He walks a little further and meets another person who buys one-half of his eggs plus one-half of an egg. After proceeding further he meets another person who buys one-half of his eggs plus one half an egg. At this point he has sold all of his eggs, and he never broke an egg. How many eggs did the man have to start with?



EDIT: You may have noticed this thread was closed as soon as it was entered. That was not intended to limit your input or enjoyment in any way. On the contrary, your participation is most welcome. The action was taken to prevent eager Peeps from going into some search engine, finding the answer, and posting it, as happened on several occasions in the past. (Of course I harvest a lot of this material from other sources. You didn’t think I create it all myself, did you? I’m good, but I’m not that good!) Regrettably, that also means that folks who legitimately work out their own answers, and would like to post them, don’t get to display their prowess, but I’m afraid that can’t be helped. I’ll open the thread in a couple of days, when Peeps have had an opportunity to try their hand at a solution, and you can post away then. The official answer will come a bit after that. I appreciate your patience and understanding, and hope you enjoy the exercise.

I think you have no daughters...if you had any daughters, at least two of those statements would be true.

The Official Answers (Sorry this took so long. It slipped through the cracks.)

1. One Word

2. If I have any daughters there will always be two statements which are true. Therefore I have no daughters.

3. Lettuce

4. She is a candle

5. A watermelon

6. A dead man cannot marry. His "widow" would mean he is dead

7. A diary.

8. Suicide

9. What time is it?

10. A hole

11. EYE

12. Mom

13. They all made right-hand turns.

14. They are the remains of a melted snowman.

15. 7 eggs. The first person bought one half of his eggs plus one half an egg (3 1/2 + 1/2 = 4 eggs) This left him 3 eggs. The second person bought one-half of his eggs plus one half an egg, (1 1/2 + 1/2 = 2 eggs) leaving the man 1 egg. The last person bought one-half of his eggs plus one-half an egg, (1/2 + 1/2 = 1 egg) leaving no eggs.
