CHALLENGE 1-8 QUESTIONS and ANSWERS

CHALLENGE 1:
A soldier has been captured by the enemy. He has been so brave that they offer to let him choose how he wants to be killed. They tell him, "If you tell a lie, you will be shot, and if you tell the truth you will be hanged." He can make only one statement. He makes the statement and goes free. What did he say?

CHALLENGE 1 ANSWER:
He said, "I will be shot." If he were shot, it would be the truth, and if they hanged him it would be a lie. So they set him free.


CHALLENGE 2:

Three youngsters on our street went shopping for clothes in a very unusual clothing store. The owner charges $3 for a tie, $3 for a hat, and $5 for a shirt. How much would a jacket cost?

CHALLENGE 2 ANSWER:
$6. The storekeeper charges $1 per letter in the name of the item.


CHALLENGE 3:

A young explorer called his expedition chief in great excitement
to report that he had just found a golden coin marked 6 B.C.
The expedition chief fired him. Why?


CHALLENGE 3 ANSWER:
A coin was perhaps made before Christ, but it was impossible to know that he was to be born. Hence the BC mark was declared after he was put on earth.

CHALLENGE 4:

Three ways of spelling me there be.

The third is past tense, a method of passing things on or around.

Can you tell me now, what these words are, that have the same sound?

CHALLENGE 5 ANSWER:

scent, cent, and sent



CHALLENGE 6:

A horse salesman went to a horse auction with a certain number of horses. To his first customer, he sold half his horses, plus half a horse. To his second, he sold half of what he had left, plus half a horse. To the last, he sold half of what he had left, plus half a horse. Each of his customers received whole horses, however, not half horses, and he had no horses left. How many horses did he start out with?

CHALLENGE 6 ANSWER:
SEVEN. The first man gets three-and-a-half, plus one-half, or four horses. The second man gets half of the three that are left, one-and-one half, plus one-half, making two. That leaves one, so the last man gets one-half and one-half. If you start from teh end and work backwards, it's easier.

CHALLENGE 7:
