Teacher agreed and proceeded with the law course. When the course was finished and teacher started pestering the student to pay up the fee, student reminded the deal and pushed days. Fed up
with this, the teacher decided to sue the student in the court of
law and both of them decided to argue for themselves. The teacher
put forward his argument saying: “If I win this case, as per the court of law, student has to pay me. And if I lose the case, student will still pay me because he would have won his first case. So either way I will have to get the money”.
Equally brilliant student argued back saying: “If I win the case, as per the court of law, I
don’t have to pay anything to the teacher. And if I lose the case, I
don’t have to pay him because I haven’t won my first case yet. So
either way, I am not going to pay the teacher anything”

Who is telling the truth? Guru or Sishya?

There are only nine questions.

 This is a quiz for people who know everything! I found out in a hurry that I didn’t. These are not trick questions. They are straight questions with straight answers. 1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends.2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward? 3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons.  All other vegetables must be replanted every year.  What are the only two perennial vegetables? 4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?5.. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle.  The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn’t been cut in any way.  How did the pear get inside the bottle? 6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters ‘ dw’ and they are all common words.  Name two of them.7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name at least half of them? 8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh. 9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter ‘S.’

1… The one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends: Boxing.

2. North American landmark constantly moving backward:   Niagara Falls .

(The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.)

3. Only two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons: Asparagus and rhubarb.

4. The fruit with its seeds on the outside: Strawberry.

5. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle?  It grew inside the bottle.

The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and are wired in place on the tree.  The bottle is left in place for the entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at the stems.

6. Three English words beginning with dw: Dwarf, dwell and dwindle…

7. Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar: Period, comma, colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe,question mark, exclamation point, quotation mark, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellipses.

1.Bulbs
This is one of my favorite free printable logic puzzles with a real life solution.
There are three switches downstairs. Each corresponds to one of the three light bulbs in the attic. You can turn the switches on and off and leave them in any position.
How would you identify which switch corresponds to which light bulb, if you are only allowed one trip upstairs?

Ans :
Turn on the first switch and then wait a few minutes.
Then turn it off and turn on the second switch right away and wait a few minutes.
Now turn off the second switch and walk into the other room.
Touch all of the bulbs and feel for which bulb is the hottest. This one is with the second switch.
The cooler, but still warm bulb is with the first switch.
The coolest bulb is the third switch.

The bulb with the first switch isnt the hottest becuz it had time to cool down while the 2nd switch’s bulb was still hot.
