Los Riddles no son tan populares en la cultura del idioma inglés como son las adivinanzas en la cultura hispana. Pero existen.

Y son muy valiosos para la persona que estudia el idioma porque se basan en juegos de palabra y doble sentido. Después de rascarte la cabeza buscando la solución de un “riddle”, no te olvidarás las palabras que son la clave.

Aquí van algunos.

1. Mary’s parents have four kids, named North, South and East. What’s the fourth kid’s name?

2. If a plan crashed in the sea between the United States and Haiti, where would the survivors be buried?

3. What’s the longest word in the dictionary?

4. There was one girl in a room. She had four Mommy cats. She put each cat into one of the four corners of the room. Mommy cat 1 had 2 kittens. Mommy cat 2 had 3 kittens. Mommy cat 3 had 4 kittens. Mommy cat 4 had 5 kittens. How many feet were in the room?

5. I appear once in Tuesday, once in Wednesday, twice in a week, and once in a year. Who am I?

6. One day a magician is bragging about how he can stay under water for 5 minutes and 32 seconds. A little boy says, “That’s nothing. I can stay under water for over 10 minutes”. The magician tells the little boy he will give him a hundred dollars if he can. The little boy ends up winning the bet. How did he do it?

7. What has four wheels and flies?

8. What is black and white and red all over?

9. A doctor and a nurse have a baby boy. But the boy’s father is not the doctor and the mother is not the nurse. How can it be ?

10. What do you use from your head to your toes that the more it works the thinner it grows?
