Hard riddles with Easy answers

Something I love about riddles is when the question seems so hard there’s no way to figure out the answer then all of a sudden you realize how easy the answer is.

I’ve seen some great riddles like that. Riddles that make you dig into your brain so deep just to figure out how to answer it then only to realize it was the easiest answer ever. 

Sometimes it’s as simple as saying the riddle outloud and you’ll be able to know the answer.

Other times the answer is in the riddle and all you have to do is read it over and just think.  Either way these are my favorite kind because the answer isn’t obvious yet when you hear it it’s easy as pie. A perfect example of a riddle like that is this one
