Some brain exercise .....



1. What is the easiest way to throw a ball, have it stop, and reverse direction after traveling a short distance?

2. ? ?What is at the beginning of eternity, the end of time, the beginning of every end, and the end of every place?

3. ? ?When things go wrong, what can you always count on?

4. What is always behind you but you can never touch it?

5. ? ?I am never the first to speak but I am always the last to be heard. Who am I?

6. ? ?We were born of the same mother, on the same day, at the same hour and in the same year. Yet we are not twins. How do you explain this?

7. ? ?Two fathers and two sons were seated round a table. There were four apples on the table. Each of them took one apple and ate it ent irely yet there was still one apple left on the table. How was this possible?

8. ? ?Here everything is not always in order. For example, Friday comes before Thursday, the cart comes before the horse, the driver comes before the employer. Where are we?

9. ? When I am alive I stay put where I am. It is only when I am dead that I move about here and there. Who am I?

10. ?How can you be behind a person when that person is also behind you?

HI ER_NEO,

If by same day you mean monday or any day of the week then it could be that they were born in different months of the same year.
