Time and time again the Internet tries to trip us up with its seemingly endless supply of mind benders and brain teasers. Then we compile our favorites and dump them on you to figure out! Since we have already silenced some of our archivists, we thought we could try again with these riddles that many people can not solve.
So let’s take a look at 3 Tricky Riddles That 99% People Fail To Solve!
1. Word Riddle
Let’s start this off on the simpler side with a basic word riddle
I have keys that have no matching locks. I have space but no room. You can enter but you can’t go outside. Now think what could possibly have keys with no matching locks, plenty of space but room for nothing and offer you the ability to enter, but not leave? Well, it does not look like a house, since you have everything this riddle says. Think outside the box, take a break and see if you can understand it!
Need a hint?
Well without it there’d be no comments sections. If you guessed a keyboard you figured it out. Keys, a spacebar, an enter key, all elements of the riddle are right in front of you. You may have noticed the first part of the riddle was changed having originally read have keys but no locks, but one can make an argument for the Caps Lock key!
2. How Many Triangles Do You See?
We tried to stump you with squares in a past Archive but that didn’t quite work for some of you. Maybe changing shapes will do the trick! So looking at this image how many do you see? Go ahead pause the video and give a count. We’ll wait.
What’d you wind up with somewhere in the 40′ right? 44 seems to be a popular answer but is the popular answer always correct? NO! In fact it’s quite a ways off to the final answer of 104 . There is a mess of hidden triangles large ones, small ones, mid-sized ones all crammed into this star.
5. Bat And Ball
A bat and ball cost $ 1.10. The bat cost one dollar more than the ball. How much does the ball cost? Who doesn’t love a little math riddle? Well probably a lot of you, especially math riddles that tend to have obvious answers that well aren’t correct.
We’ve found that a lot of people that assume if the bat is $ 1. more then the ball must be $0.10 and while it may look right it’s sloppy math. If the ball is $0.10 and the bat is $1 more then the bat would really cost $1.10 and the total would be $1.20. To get to $1.10 we can’t ignore that however much the ball is the bat will be that plus a dollar. Let’s say the ball costs $0.5 the bat would then be $1.5. Add the two together and you have your magic number $..
