How to Find Answers for Brain Teasers These days, brain teasers are part of job interviews. They are helpful in psycho-analysis of the candidate. While attempting to solve hard riddles, keep it in your mind that they are meant to trick you. - Leena Palande

2. When can you add two to eleven and get one as the correct answer? 3. Can you guess the next three letters in the following series and why? CYGTNTLIT F......... 4. First I threw away the outside and cooked the inside, then I ate the outside and threw away the inside, what did I eat? 5. The number 8,549,176,320 is a unique number. Can you tell what is so special about it? 6. A woman from Washington married twenty different men from that city, yet she was not arrested for breaking the law. The most surprising fact is that she never divorced and none of these men died. How was this possible? 7. I am the beginning of sorrow and the end of sickness. You cannot express happiness without me yet I am in the midst of crosses. I am always in risk yet never in danger. You may find me in the sun but I am never out of darkness. 8. When you have me, you immediately feel like sharing me. But, if you do share me, you don’t have me.

9. What has a mouth but cannot eat, what moves but has no legs and what has a bank but cannot put money in it? 10. What makes more as you take them? 11. From the beginning of eternity to the end of time and space I am in every place. What am I? 12. What do the following words have in common? Assess, Voodoo, Banana, Grammar, Potato, Dresser, Revive, Uneven 13. A man wanted to encrypt his password but he needed to do it in a way so that he could remember it. He had to use 7 characters consisting of letters and numbers only (no symbols like ! or <). In order to remember it, he wrote down “You force heaven to be empty.” Can you tell me what his password was? 14. Arnold Schwarzenegger has a long one. Michael J. Fox has a short one. Madonna doesn’t use hers. Bill Clinton always uses his. The pope never uses his. What is it? 15. A man wanted to work but he could not log in to his computer terminal successfully. He tried twice but his password didn’t work. He suddenly remembered that the passwords are reset

every month for security purposes. So he called his boss and said, Man-”Hey boss, my password is out of date.” Boss-”Yes, that’s right. The password is different, listen carefully, I am sure, you can figure out the new one. The new one has the same amount of letters as your old password, but only four of the letters are the same.” Man: “Thanks boss.” With that he could correctly log into his station. Can you tell me his new and old passwords? 16. A man is on a trip with a fox, a goose, and a sack of corn. He comes upon a stream which he has to cross, and finds a tiny boat which he can use for the same. The problem

though, is that he can only take himself and either the fox, the goose, or the corn across at a time. It is not possible for him to leave the fox alone with the goose or the goose alone with the corn. How can he get all safely over the stream? 17. You are standing in front of a room with one lightbulb inside of it. You cannot see if it is on or off. Outside the room there are 3 switches in the off positions. You may turn the switches any way you want to. You stop turning the switches, enter the room and know which switch controls the light bulb. How?

1. Your breath 2. When you add two hours to eleven o’clock, you end up at one o’clock 3. S, A and W, the first letter of every word in the sentence. 4. Corn on the cob 5. This is the only number which includes all the digits arranged in alphabetical order. 6. She was a Justice of the Peace 7. The letter S 8. Secret 9. River 10. Foot steps 11. The letter E 12. Take the first letter of the word and move it to the rear of the word, you will get the same word when read backwards 13. U472BMT: Try to pronounce the sentence like these characters 14. Surname 15. The old one was: Out of date, The new one is: Different 16. Take the goose over first and come back. Then take the fox over and bring the goose back. Now take the corn over and come back alone to get the goose. Take the goose over and the job is done! 17. You turn 2 switches on and leave 1 switch off and wait about a minute. Then enter the room, but just before you enter, turn one switch from on to off. Once in the room, feel the lightbulb - if it is warm, but off, it has to be the last switch you turned off. If it is on, it has to be the switch left on. If it is cold and is off, it has to be the switch you left in the off position.

1. What can you hold without ever touching or using your hands?
