Riddles are a fun way to spend your time. Some people love to read them and others love to share them. Whatever your riddle style is the important things is that you enjoy them. Riddles are great ice breakers as well as a fantastic way to see how people see life. 

Either way whatever your reasons fro liking riddles you’ve come to the right place. Head below and see some fun riddles as well as the answer to the one above. 

Let’s see how many you can get before seeing the answer 🙂

There was a plane crash in which every single person was killed. Yet there were 12 survivors. How?

The 12 survivors were married, not single.

You have two ropes, each of which takes exactly one hour to burn if lit from one end. The ropes are not identical, nor are they uniform, i.e. it doesn’t necessarily take half an hour for half the rope to burn.

With only these two ropes and a way to light them, how do you measure out 45 minutes?

You can do this in the following way:

First, light both ends of one rope and only one end of the other rope.

This will cause the first rope to burn out in 30 minutes (as you lit both ends it will burn in half the time as if you’d only lit one end).

When the first rope burns out, there will be 30 minutes left on the second rope (as each rope takes one hour to burn when lit from one end).

So then, light the other end of the second rope so both ends of it are now burning. This rope will now burn out in another 15 minutes.

The total time elapsed at this point will be 45 minutes (30 + 15 = 45 minutes).

Turn me on my side and I am everything. Cut me in half and I am nothing.What am I?

The number 8. On its side, it looks like the symbol for infinity and when you cut it in half, it looks like two zeroes.

I have cities but no houses, forests but no trees, water but no fish.What am I?
