Trick questions and answers are always fun and exciting. No matter how tricky and hard the questions are, people try their best to get to the end of the maze.

Before I give you the trick questions, let me give you the answers to the first two which were asked at the beginning. The first was, "What walks on four in spring, two in summer and three in winter?" Here's the answer.

Spring denotes the early childhood of a man. During that time, he is a baby and crawls - meaning he walks on four legs! Adulthood is analogous to summer, and so the baby becomes a man and walks on two. Finally, winter falls when the man starts getting older and as you know, most elderly people need the aid of a stick to walk, and hence they walk on 'three' legs!

The second question was, "What is it which is yours and you do not use, but others always do?"

Let's see if you can get the rest of the questions right. Here they are...

#1. Which letter of the English alphabet flies, sings, and stings?

#21. There are sixty cups on a table. If one falls down, then how many remain?

#22. Let's say you are working as a tourist guide for a reputed organization. One day, you get to serve 35 tourists. The entire group comprises 5 businessmen, 2 monks, 4 photographers, 5 high school students, 7 doctors, 4 nuns, 3 small kids, 3 scholars, and 2 married couples. Out of these, 2 nuns leave halfway, 3 photographers decide to stay behind, and the students begin to disappear one by one. The monks say that they would like to rest for a while. What is the name of the guide?

#23. It was a sunny Sunday morning. Roger was reading, Bella was painting, little Johny was trying to walk, the widow (next door neighbor) was over the phone with her husband, Susie was in the kitchen, and Tommy, the pet dog, was barking frantically. Then there was a loud bang, and everybody found Tommy dead in his kennel. Who killed Tommy?

#24. One day you decide to enter a sixty-storied skyscraper. The office on the 15th floor deals in jazz and rock music videos. The power is out in the building due to some maintenance work. You want to go to the 15th floor and the 40th floor, for the view from there is magnificent. You somehow reach the 15th floor but you get too tired to continue. You call the elevator and get inside. Guess what type of music is playing inside the elevator?

#25. There is a river. On one side (say side A) a man is standing with a Bengal tiger, a goat, and a bunch of grass. The man has to transport each of them to the other side (say side B) of the river on a boat. Now, the boat can carry one item at a time along with the man. How will he do it? Remember that, the tiger can kill the goat if not attended by the man, and the goat can eat the grass, when left alone.

#26. This one is my favorite among all trick questions and answers. Imagine yourself driving on a highway on a windy day. Suddenly, you notice some people standing by the side of the road, and you slow down. You learn that the people include your best friend, an ailing old woman, and your dream girl. The ailing woman is dying and requires immediate medical help. Now, you have only one chance to spend a day with your dream girl, and of course you can't leave your best friend behind. So, what would you do in order to help the woman to reach the hospital? Remember that, your car can carry 'ONLY TWO' people (the driver and one passenger).

#27. This one seems hard, but it's simple! There is a casino and it has 4 gates (let's name them as gate A, B, C and D). Every time you enter the casino, you have to pay \$5 and every time you leave the casino, you again have to pay \$5. Also know that, whatever amount of money you carry with you inside the casino, it doubles. For example if you carry \$5, it will become \$10. You have to go inside the casino through gate A, come out of B, again go inside the casino through gate C and finally come out of gate D. Now, how much money should you carry inside the casino so that when you finally come out of the gate D, you should be left with no money?

That would be all for some trick questions and answers which I could think of, as of now. There will be more coming up in future and those will be trickier and more interesting; enough to shock, amaze, and amuse you! Till then, keep 'cooking' your own set of trick questions and answers and amuse others!
