## A Woman Gave Birth To Two Sons Riddle

A woman gave birth to two sons who were born on the same hour of the same day of the same year but were not twins. How is this possible?

Hint:

## Banana Clock Riddle

Hint: 1. Look closely at the clock.
2. Number of Bananas.
3. Some thing regarding the sides of the Shapes figure.

38

Logic :

From 1st the hexagon shape has value 15.

The shape has 15 edges(6 of hexagon,5 of Pentagon and 4 of Square)

From 2nd we get value of one bunch of bananas is 4.

So each banana has value of 1.

From 3rd we get that each clock has value of 3.

Which resembles the time on the clock which is 3.

Hence by using these insights, we get the last required values as

Clock = 2 (2 in the clock)

Bananas = 3 (3 bananas in the bunch)

Hexagon = 11 (Hexagon[6 sides] and pentagon[5 sides], so 6+5=11)

So required value is

2+3+3x11=?

2+3+33=? (Multiply first - Bodmas rule)

5+33=38 and hence the answer is 38.

## A Sharpshooter Riddle

A sharpshooter hangs up his hat, turns around and walks 5000 meters, then turns around and shoots his gun, putting a hole right through his hat. How did he do it?

Hint:

## Fighting In A Truel

Mr. Black, Mr. Gray, and Mr. White are fighting in a truel. They each get a gun and take turns shooting at each other until only one person is left. Mr. Black, who hits his shot 1/3 of the time, gets to shoot first. Mr. Gray, who hits his shot 2/3 of the time, gets to shoot next, assuming he is still alive. Mr. White, who hits his shot all the time, shoots next, assuming he is also alive. The cycle repeats. All three competitors know one another's shooting odds. If you are Mr. Black, where should you shoot first for the highest chance of survival?

Hint: Think from the points of view of Mr. Gray and Mr. White, not just Mr. Black.

He should shoot at the ground.

If Mr. Black shoots the ground, it is Mr. Gray's turn. Mr. Gray would rather shoot at Mr. White than Mr. Black, because he is better. If Mr. Gray kills Mr. White, it is just Mr. Black and Mr. Gray left, giving Mr. Black a fair chance of winning. If Mr. Gray does not kill Mr. White, it is Mr. White's turn. He would rather shoot at Mr. Gray and will definitely kill him. Even though it is now Mr. Black against Mr. White, Mr. Black has a better chance of winning than before.

YES NO

Hint:

It was suicide. The man was the smallest midgit in the world and his friend was the second smallest midget in the world and they worked at a circus. His friend was jealous of him so he broke a yardstick (note: that was the broken stick on the bed) and marked it at four feet.
