Brainteaser Answer 8

Word-Play. Answer 8: Place the first letter at the end of the word instead and it’ll spell the same word backwards! Let’s recap on those words: revive, banana, grammar, voodoo, assess, potato, dresser, uneven. B-anana -> anana-B Perhaps I’m just a bit of a word geek, but I absolutely LOVE this one.

Brainteaser Answer 7

Cabin Fever. Answer 7: The ‘cabin’ is actually a plane cabin and the two men died in a plane crash! A bit grim, I must admit, but anyway…it’s all about the dual meaning of words again. When you hear the words “forest,” “cabin,” “wood” etc. together, it (should) immediately conjure up images of a wooden cabin in […]

Brainteaser Answer 6

A Tick Question. Answer 6: 7.5 Degrees. Did you think the answer was 0? You are not alone! Most people rush into answering the question and forget that the hour hand moves too; at 3.15, it will actually be a quarter of the way between 3 and 4 (because a quarter of an hour has gone by). To calculate the answer… […]

Brainteaser Answer 5

Are You Seeing Things? Answer 5: The word “single” actually refers to marital status, not the number of people on board. So, the boat is full, but everyone on board is married! This is a cheeky little trick question, playing on the dual meanings of the word ‘single’. Did you notice?

Brainteaser Answer 2

Make McClane Proud… There are two acceptable answers to this question…did you get either of them? Answer 2(a): Fill up the 3-litre jug with water and then tip it all into the 5-litre jug.

Brainteaser Answer 1

A Petri Hard Puzzle Answer 1: 12.59 pm This little cheeky brainteaser depends on a tendency to over-think the question. You really don’t need to consider the ins and outs of bacteria, half-life and decay; you just need to work backwards and use a little bit of common sense! At 1 pm the dish is full. If bacteria doubles every […]
