4. School Bus Riddle

Which direction is the school bus travelling?

This brainteaser appeared in a National Geographic Brain Games series. It was found that children solved this puzzle very quickly, whereas adults struggled.

Answer: The answer depends on where you live around the world. The clue is the positioning of the bus’s doors.

If you live in the UK, the bus would be driving from left to right but if you live in the United States, the bus would be driving from right to left, as the doors would be positioned on the alternative side to the driver.

2. Maths Riddle

A maths teacher asks his pupils:

How can four be half of five?

Answer: What you’re about to read may seem a little far-fetched but prepare for your mind to be blown.

You might have tried some complex equations or some elaborate fractions but the answer is right in front of you.

If you look at the word, “five”, you will see the letters “iv” halfway. The Roman numeral for four is “iv”, which is “half” (two of the four letters) of the word “five”, if that makes some sort of sense.

What did I say…. Mind-blowing.
