Are You Clever And Logical? - Quiz

This quiz contains as many riddles as I could think of. If you're good at solving riddles, or you think you're clever and logical, then take this quiz and find out the truth.

    What are two things you cannot have for breakfast?

    Explanation
    The answer "lunch and dinner" is correct because breakfast refers to the first meal of the day, typically eaten in the morning. Lunch and dinner are meals that are consumed later in the day, so they cannot be considered as options for breakfast. Therefore, it is not possible to have lunch or dinner for breakfast.

    What can you hear but not see, and only speaks when spoken to?

    Explanation
    An echo is a sound that can be heard but not seen. It is created when a sound wave reflects off a surface and travels back to the listener. Echoes only occur when there is a surface for the sound to bounce off of. Additionally, an echo only "speaks" or repeats the sound that was originally spoken when it is spoken to, meaning that it only occurs in response to a sound being made.

    What's easier to give than to recieve?

    Explanation
    Criticism is easier to give than to receive because it requires less effort and vulnerability. When giving criticism, one can simply express their opinions or judgments without having to face the emotional impact or consequences. On the other hand, receiving criticism can be challenging as it often involves accepting personal flaws or shortcomings, which can be uncomfortable and require self-reflection. Therefore, it is generally easier to provide criticism than to be on the receiving end.

    What weighs more, a kg of feathers or a kg of lead?

    Explanation
    The answer "they both weigh the same, neither" is correct because a kilogram of feathers and a kilogram of lead both have the same weight. The question is designed to trick the reader by implying that the weight of the objects might be different due to the different materials they are made of. However, the question clearly states that both objects weigh one kilogram, so their weight is equal.

    What word is always spelled wrong?

    Explanation
    The word "wrong" is always spelled wrong because it is intentionally spelled with the letters that make up the word "wrong". This creates a play on words and a humorous contradiction. The word itself is used to describe something that is not correct or accurate, so it is ironic that the word itself is spelled incorrectly.

It is designed to mimic the shape and structure of a hand, with separate compartments for each finger and a larger compartment for the thumb. However, it is not a living body part and cannot perform the same functions as a hand.

Additionally, it is the beginning of every ending because it is the first letter in the word "ending." Therefore, the letter "e" fits all the criteria mentioned in the question.
