I found this riddle earlier this week. Apparently, only 1 in 5 gets it right on the first try. I think that sounds a bit odd because it wasn’t that hard – but it really makes you think twice.
I guess that’s the way it is with a lot of these riddles and puzzles – either you get it right straight away, or you have to sit and ponder it for a good long while before finding the answer.
In any case, here’s the riddle:
Simon’s Dad has 4 sons;
and May –
but what is the fourth son’s name?
The fourth son’s name is Simon. “Simon’s Dad has 4 sons…”, so that means Simon is one of the sons!
