    Explanation
    Fire can be seen as "dancing" when it flickers and moves. It does not have legs, lungs, or a life, but it still "breathes" by consuming oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide. Fire can also be seen as "living" because it grows and spreads, and it can "die" when it runs out of fuel or is extinguished. Therefore, fire fits all the given criteria in the riddle.

The phrase "eternally joining in a single bite" is a metaphor for stapling papers together with a single staple.

    Explanation
    The given riddle describes a creature that sizzles like bacon, is made with an egg, has plenty of backbone but lacks a good leg, peels layers like onions but remains whole, can be long like a flagpole but can also fit in a hole.

    Only one color, but not one size, Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies,Present in sun, but not in rain, Doing no harm, and feeling no pain.What Am I?

    • A.

      Fish

    • B.

      Light

    • C.

      Pills

    • D.

      Shadow

    • E.

      People

    Correct Answer
    D. Shadow
    Explanation
    A shadow fits the description because it is only one color (usually black or dark), but it does not have a specific size as it depends on the object casting it. It is stuck at the bottom because it is formed when an object blocks light, yet it can easily move or "fly" depending on the position of the light source. Shadows are present in sunlight but not in rain, as rain can scatter or block sunlight. Shadows do no harm and do not feel pain as they are merely the absence of light.

    I am slim and tall, Many find me desirable and appealing,They touch me and I give a false good feeling,Once I shine in splendor,But only once and then no more,For many I am "to die for".What Am I?

    • A.

      Cookies

    • B.

      Prostitutes

    • C.

      Pills

    • D.

      Drugs

    • E.

      Cigarettes

    Correct Answer
    E. Cigarettes
    Explanation
    Cigarettes are described as slim and tall, which matches the physical appearance of a cigarette. Many people find cigarettes desirable and appealing, and when they touch and smoke them, they experience a false sense of pleasure or good feeling. Cigarettes shine or burn brightly when lit, but only once and then they are gone. The phrase "to die for" suggests that cigarettes are highly addictive and can cause serious health issues, ultimately leading to death.

The fact that they all made fair amounts when squaring accounts indicates that they were compensated for their musical abilities rather than engaging in gambling or cheating.

The person who buys it (usually for a deceased loved one) has no use for it themselves. Additionally, the person who uses it (the deceased) cannot see or feel it as they are no longer alive.

      Splinters

    Correct Answer
    E. Splinters
    Explanation
    Splinters are small, sharp fragments that can be found in wood or other materials. When walking in a forest, it is possible to accidentally get splinters from trees or other objects. Sitting down and searching for the splinters may not be successful because they can be difficult to see or remove. However, when getting up and leaving the forest, it is possible to unknowingly carry the splinters with you. Therefore, the answer "splinters" fits the given scenario.

    B. River
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "river" because rivers always flow downwards, they do not have the ability to talk, and they can be contained within a cup (although not completely). Additionally, rivers are known for their continuous movement, often described as "running," which aligns with the clue given in the question.

    B. Candle
    Explanation
    The correct answer is candle. The explanation for this is that a candle can be measured in hours because it burns for a certain amount of time. It serves by being devoured or consumed as it gradually burns down. When a candle is thin, it burns quickly, but when it is fat or thicker, it burns slowly. Wind is its foe because it can easily blow out a candle flame.
