### 5-2=2…But, how?

But how can that be right? Surely your whole schooling career has not been a total lie? How can subtracting two from five leave you with two as the answer – this must be a typo!

Funnily enough, it’s not, you just are not thinking outside the box enough. If you remove the first and the last letters from the word “FIVE”, you will have only the IV leftover – which amazingly enough is also the Roman Numeral or the number 2!

### A woman Has 7 children, and Half of them are Boys – How is that possible?

This just can’t be true, can it? I mean, surely it can if the question is here right? But half of 7 is 3.5 and how in the it’s-not-possible can one get half a child?

Let’s take a look at this logic puzzle again, they mentioned that half of the woman’s children are boys, but did it mention anything about the other half? Are you simply assuming that the other half are girls? I would be logical, right? If you were clever, you would remember that assuming is the mother-of-all-mistakes, the answer is that they are all boys! Ha! Didn’t expect that one did you?

### Which answer is the Bird’s Eye View from the top of the Pyramid?

If you have a knack for color-coding, this one will be a piece of cake for you! Consider which side (left, right, top, or bottom) each wall of the pyramid is, they are signaled by a different color This should make it super easy. The answer is C if you had not guessed that already.

### It took 20 people 24 hours to build a wall, how long would it take for 30 people?

Maybe it’s a mathematical equation, surely I must use some division and multiplication to get the right answer? Sometimes, although this is rare, maths can’t solve everything. If it took 20 people 24 hours to build the wall… then for 30 people, it would take 0 hours! Because the wall was built by the 20 people before already!
