Riddle Me This….

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

 

StudyingI love riddles. I love taking on the challenge. However, when doing simple basic riddles, sometimes we can be made to feel that we are NOT smarter than a 5th grader.  LOL

The other day I was doing some riddles with a 12 and 8 year old. I was pretty impressed how well they did. Turns out their dad does them with them. A great idea, get those problem solving skills going early and hone them as they grow. Otherwise they become like us….not smarter than a 5th grader.    😀

Ok, here are a few easy riddles to stretch your riddle muscle… Answers Below…Good Luck!

Q 1: Mary’s father has 5 daughters – Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono. What is the fifth daughters name?

Q 2: Is an older one-hundred dollar bill worth more than a newer one?

Q 3: Mr. Smith has two children. If the older child is a boy, what are the odds that the other child is also a boy?

Q 5: In a one-story pink house, there was a pink person, a pink cat, a pink fish, a pink computer, a pink chair, a pink table, a pink telephone, a pink shower– everything was pink!

    I only did one correct! Number see (My answer was 1/2 and it asked for odds, which means ratio, right?) but I can’t believe I couldn’t do the rest! 😮 Awesome choices! 😀 My answer to the first was Nunu (LOL)
