Rank 7 Out of 10
  1. Mary’s father has 5 daughters: 1) Nana 2) Nene 3) Nini 4) Nono. What is the name of the 5th daughter?
  1. Suppose you’re on a game show, and you’re given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what’s behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, “Do you want to pick door No. 2?” Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?
  1. This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.
  1. Three guests check into a hotel room. The clerk says the bill is $30, so each guest pays $10. Later the clerk realizes the bill should only be $25. To rectify this, he gives the bellhop $5 to return to the guests. On the way to the room, the bellhop realizes that he cannot divide the money equally. As the guests didn’t know the total of the revised bill, the bellhop decides to just give each guest $1 and keep $2 for himself.
 
Now that each of the guests has been given $1 back, each has paid $9, bringing the total paid to $27. The bellhop has $2. If the guests originally handed over $30, what happened to the remaining $1?
  1. I have one, you have one.
If you remove the first letter, a bit remains.
If you remove the second, bit still remains.
After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains.
It dies hard!

Asma All of the riddle was good...and it is common sense that fifth one must be mary...:) Asma
May 22nd 2013
 
 
Irum Ok everyone , I'm breaking all the answers, so listen carefully . These are the answers.... 1. Mary. While you may have been tempted to say “Nunu”, the riddle explicitly states at the beginning “Mary’s father…” 2.As the player cannot be certain which of the two remaining unopened doors is the winning door, and initially all doors were equally likely, most people assume that each of two remaining closed doors has an equal probability and conclude that switching does not matter. However, under standard assumptions, the player should switch—doing so doubles the overall probability of winning the car from 1/3 to 2/3. This can be proved very complicatedly through mathematics, or shown through a diagram Time 3. The riddle misdirects by adding the $2 and $27 – the $2 is contained within the $27 already, so the addition is meaningless. Instead the $2 should be subtracted from the $27 to get the revised bill of $25. 4. The initial payment of $30 is accounted for as the clerk takes $25, the bellhop takes $2, and the guests get a $3 refund, adding up to $30. After the refund has been applied, we only have to account for a payment of $27. Again, the clerk keeps $25 and the bellhop gets $2. This also adds up. 5. Habit: Remove h – a bit remains Remove a – bit remains Remove b – it remains Irum

Anyhow Ayesha u wanted my comment and opinion and I must say that it's really nice :) Soha

Irum Laiba, Your first one is correct, second one is partly correct and partly incorrect, 3rd is wrong,4. The initial payment of $30 is accounted for as the clerk takes $25, the bellhop takes $2, and the guests get a $3 refund, adding up to $30. After the refund has been applied, we only have to account for a payment of $27. Again, the clerk keeps $25 and the bellhop gets $2. This also adds up. 5th is right! Think Think!! Irum
May 5th 2013
 
 
Laibah Hey,are my right or wrong ??? Laibah
May 4th 2013
 
 
Eraj Sorry not fatimah! Its Ayesha Eraj
May 4th 2013
 
 
Eraj Thank you fatimah I am!! :) Eraj
May 4th 2013
 
 
Eraj Don't be so rude Fatima,they are not Bakwas riddles,they are infact nice riddles.Good Work Ayesha!!.You are right fatima is only jelous with you! Eraj
May 4th 2013
 
 
Irum Fatima, you just didn't know how to solve my riddles, and that's why you're calling them "bakwas". If you can't solve the riddles, it doesn't mean that others can't solve them too, okay? Anyway, you're jealous of me, I think! Irum
May 4th 2013
 
 
Irum 2.As the player cannot be certain which of the two remaining unopened doors is the winning door, and initially all doors were equally likely, most people assume that each of two remaining closed doors has an equal probability and conclude that switching does not matter. However, under standard assumptions, the player should switch—doing so doubles the overall probability of winning the car from 1/3 to 2/3. This can be proved very complicatedly through mathematics, or shown through a diagram Yes, Eraj, you're right! It's rather a difficult question. How did you know the answer? It takes a mathematic formula to solve this! You must be rather intelligent...=D Irum
May 4th 2013
 
 
Laibah 1.Mary. 2.No,because the car came first,then two goats. 3.God or a hurricane 4.The bellhop would have taken the one dollar. 5.Habit. please tell me if my answers are correct. thanks !!!!! Laibah
May 3rd 2013
 
 
fatima Bakwas! Fatima
May 3rd 2013
 
 
Eraj 1.Mary 2.yes, the probability is higher- 2/3 if you switch.am I right! Eraj
May 3rd 2013
 
 
Irum Okay Hafsa Irfan, I'll explain it to you. Now, the first clue of the question is that "I have one, You have one". It means that the answer is a thing that everyone has. The second clue is"If you remove the first letter, "abit" remains. The third clue is "If you remove the second, "bit" remains." Now, the fourth clue is "After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but "it"remains."So what the riddle is doing is that it's just removing the second or first words of the answer and telling the words that remain in the actual answer. The fifth clue is, " It dies hard!". This means that the answer is a thing which goes away very easily. The fifth clue may have confused you, because old English is used in it........ Okay, so I explained the riddle to you. Hope you understood it, cousin! =D Anyway , your 1st answer was right Hafsa Najmand Hafsa Irfan! Irum
May 2nd 2013
 
 
HAFSA I didn't understand the last question Ayesha... Hafsa
