Logic Problems & Brain Teasers

Please read these questions and try to answer them without scrolling down to find the answers. I will put all the questions first with all the answers in order at the end. I will put 5 lines between each answer to try and ensure people do not accidentally read answers they don't want to see.

1) The day before yesterday, Hana was 7 years old. Next year, she'll turn 10. How is this possible?

2) There is a room with no doors, no widows, nothing and a man is hung from the ceiling and a puddle of water is on the floor. How did he die?

3)There is one man who killed his mother, was born before his father and married over 100 women without divorcing. Yet he was considered normal by all of his acquaintances. Why is this?

4) The maker doesn't need it, the owner doesn't want it, the user doesn't know he's using it. What is it?

5) There was a train going along a track and a car coming along a road at a right angle to the train. They were both going at exactly the same speed from the same distance. Why didn't they crash?

6) Three fat ladies stood under an umbrella but none of them got wet. Why didn't any of them get wet?

7) A boy and a doctor went fishing. The boy is the doctor's son but the doctor is not the boy's father. Who is the doctor?

8) A man is in room. There are no doors an no windows and the roof & floor are sealed. How did he get out?

    Really? You got all of them? Some of them are so stupidly unthinkable... Such as 3, 4 & 10.

    Einstein wrote this quiz last century. He said that 98% of the people in the world cannot solve the quiz.

    * There are 5 houses in 5 different colors
    * In each house lives a person with a different nationality
    * These 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet
    * No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.

    Here's the question: Who owns the fish?

    1. The Brit lives in a red house
    2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets
    3. The Dane drinks tea
    4. The green house is on the left of the white house
    5. The green house owner drinks coffee
    6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds
    7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
    8. The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk
    9. The Norwegian lives in the first house
    10. The man who smokes Blend lives next door to the one who keeps cats.
    11. The man who keeps horses lives next door to the man who smokes Dunhill
    12. The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks beer
    13. The German smokes Prince
    14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
    15. The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water

    With these 15 clues the problem is solvable.

    The German!

    Now will you be brave and honest enough to admit you googled it? :)
    - bigredkev September 11, 2011, 5:50 pm
    But yes you are correct answer is the German who is the only one without a pet, therefore he must be the one who owns the fish.

    No actually. I compeltely guessed.
    Honestly I looked at it for about 5 minutes and decided I couldn't be bothered to work it out and thought "Einstein is German, so I will guess German"
    After I guessed I checked on google and was suprised that I had actually got it right!

    So in the end, you googled it.
    - Albane September 12, 2011, 11:12 am
    In the end I did... But not before I answered the question.

    i seriously only looked at this post because of the car...MIND BLOWN

    I took that picture myself :) It was when I went to Silverstone about 3 weeks ago. I have lots more pictures and videos, that image was taken in the pit lane during a race! I'm not sure if I was meant to be there but I just walked into the teams garage because I wanted pictures of the cars, nobody told me to get out so maybe I was allowed. Who knows!
