  1. 1) I am always hungry, I must always be fed, The finger I lick, Will soon turn red. What am I?

    2) If you were to put a coin into an empty bottle and then insert a cork into the neck, how could you remove the coin without taking out the cork or breaking the bottle?

    3) What five letter English word does not change its pronunciation when four letters are taken away?

    4) A boat is at anchor. Over the side hangs a rope ladder with rungs a foot apart. The tide rises at a rate of 10 inches per hour. At the end of six hours, how much of the rope ladder will remain above water, assuming that 10 feet were above the water when the tide began to rise?

    5) How many days before 17th August is it, if 50 days ago, it was four times as many days since March 30th?

    6) Almost everyone sees me without noticing me, For what is beyond is what he or she seeks. What am I?

    7) I only come once a year, I'm like a clean sheet of paper, And when I start to get old, A new one comes to replace me. What am I?

    8) I know a word of letters three. Add two, and fewer there will be?

    9) It's been around for millions of years, but it's no more than a month old. What is it?

    10) A vagrant can roll a new cigarette from 7 cigarette ends. On this particular day, by far his best, he managed to collect 145 cigarette ends. How many cigarettes will he manage to smoke in total?

    good luck!!!
