Brain Teasers

What can run but never walks, has a mouth but never talks, has a head but never weeps, and has a bed but never sleeps?

What is full of holes but still holds water?

What is light as a feather, but even the strongest man cannot hold it more than a few minutes?

Two people are in a barn. Ten cats follow them in. How many feet are in the barn now?

A red house is made from red bricks. A blue house is made from blue bricks. A yellow house is made from yellow bricks. What is a green house made from?

What can you keep but cannot share and once you share it, you can't keep it anymore?

  4. 1) Who does all the measuring?

    2) Everywhere in the world find,
    Five brothers of the same name.

    3) Twelve brothers run,
    Year long as it is,
    The sharp run-through the world entire,
    Never-sufficient.

  5. 1) I have legs - one, two, three, four, but I can’t walk across the floor.

    2) The outside is a shell,
    The inside is meat,
    It grows on a tree,
    And is good to eat.

    3) It always beats and hops,
    It never sleeps or stops,
    Life-long we don’t part
    With our little...

    4) We are twins,
    We walk together.
    We never part,
    We make a pair forever.

  6. 1.There is a common English word that is nine letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word - from nine letters right down to a single letter. What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing one letter at a time?

    2.Because cigars cannot be entirely smoked, a hobo who collects cigar butts can make a cigar to smoke out of every 5 butts that he finds. Today, he has collected 25 cigar butts. How many cigars will he be able to smoke?


    3.I am pronounced as one letter,
    but written with three,
    only two different letters are used to make me.
    I'm double, i'm single, i'm black, i'm blue and gray.
    Im read from both ends and the same either way.

  7. 1.In hand everyone took me,
    At nobody I stay;
    All give me for food
    And a tigarette.

    2.Who tell us stories
    And you can't say thank you?

    3.Put one,
    Find nine;
    Put nine,
    Find nintynine.

    4.From the ground I born,
    At the sun I dry,
    At the fire I get strong,
    At water I die.

    5.What drop on stone
    And not break;
    What drop in water
    And is break?

  10. Fly above
    Fly down
    Black is
    From tail to beak.

    Not seen and not heard
    But many words to say.
