Five Riddles to Test Your Intelligence

Five Riddles to Test Your Intelligence

After being around certain people, who will remain nameless, who seem to think that they know everything, I got to thinking. With the “I’m ok, you’re ok” mentality that seems to permeate society nowadays, it is entirely possible that they really don’t understand just how intellectually challenged they really are. So, I’ve decided to put together 5 common riddles for people to use to test themselves. If you don’t get at least 4 of these correct, without checking the answers first, then you should probably be very careful when stating an opinion.

Answers will be shown below.

1. What is as light as a feather, but even the world’s strongest man couldn’t hold it for more than twenty-five minutes?

2. There was a green house. Inside the green house there was a white house. Inside the white house there was a red house. Inside the red house there were lots of babies. What is it?

3. What can travel around the world while staying in a corner?

4. Who makes it, has no need of it.
Who buys it, has no use for it.
Who uses it can neither see nor feel it.
What is it?

5. What is greater than God,
more evil than the devil,
the poor have it,
the rich need it,
and if you eat it, you’ll die?

  1. I’m not the strongest man but I can hold my breath for more than a minute.
    Also I think that the use of the word ‘babies’ being used figuratively is incorrect. I mean the word baby in the dictionary means a very young child, an infant and this what a person thinks of.
