1. A Dice

Explanation: “It’s always 1 to 6”: the numbers on the faces of the dice, “it’s always 15 to 20”: the sum of the exposed faces when the dice comes to rest after being thrown, “it’s always 5”: the number of exposed faces when the dice is at rest, “but it’s never 21”: the sum of the exposed faces is never 21 when the dice is at rest, “unless it’s flying”: the sum of all exposed faces when the dice is flying is 21 (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6).

2.  14 legs (Only 7 people leg is there in the bus and the cats are there in the bags)

3. 8

Explanation:  square root of the number on the left + 3

ie squareroot(25) = 5 + 3 = 8

4. Nothing

Poor man  have nothing. Rich man want nothing.  if you eat nothing, you will die.

5.  This is a typical algebra problem with two unknowns, and we need to have two equations to solve the problem. Let X be the number of cows, and Y the number of chickens.

The number of cows plus the number of chickens equals 30:
X + Y = 30

Since cows have four legs and chickens have two legs, we can also have an equation for the number of legs.

4 X + 2 Y = 74

Rearranging the first equation we get

X = 30 – Y

Substituting X in the second equation gives us

4 × (30 – Y) + 2 Y = 74

120 – 4 Y + 2 Y = 74

-2 Y = 74 – 120 = -46

Y = 23

The farmer has 23 chickens. (and 7 cows).

6.  The farmer planted the ten trees in the shape of a star to get five rows of four trees.
7. Coin

8. 0!=1

so (0!+ 0!+0!+0!+0!)! =(1+1+1+1+1)!=5!=125

9. Mary

10. In Dictionary
