Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What gets wetter and wetter the more it dries?  

    Explanation
    A towel gets wetter and wetter the more it dries because when it is used to dry something, it absorbs the moisture and becomes wet. As it continues to absorb more moisture, it becomes even wetter. However, when it is left to air dry, the moisture evaporates from the towel, causing it to become dry again. So, the more it dries, the wetter it gets.

    What can you catch but not throw?

    Give me food, and I will live; give me water, and I will die. What am I?

    Explanation
    The answer to the question is "a fire" because fire needs fuel to sustain itself, and food can be considered as a source of fuel for fire. Without food or fuel, a fire will not be able to continue burning and will eventually die out. On the other hand, water is commonly used to extinguish fires, so if water is given to a fire, it will be put out and cease to exist.

    What runs all around the yard without moving?

    A doctor and a teacher both liked the same girl. One day the teacher went on a week vacation for summer. He gave her seven apples. Why?

    Explanation
    The answer "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" suggests that the teacher gave the girl seven apples because he wanted to ensure that she stays healthy and doesn't need to visit the doctor. This phrase is a common saying that implies that eating an apple every day can help maintain good health and prevent the need for medical attention. Therefore, by giving her seven apples, the teacher is expressing his concern for her well-being and indirectly showing his affection towards her.
