- The first person can walk quickly across in 1 minute.
- The second person limps and can only cross in 2 minutes.
- The third person has a twisted ankle and can cross in 5 minutes.
- The fourth person has plaster of paris on her leg and can only cross in 10 minutes.


---


The first two walk across (max 2 min). The first returns with the torch (max 1 min).
Total = 3 minutes

The third and fourth person walk across (max 10 minutes).
Total = 13 minutes.

The second returns with the torch (max 2 min). Now they both cross the bridge (max 2 minutes).
Total = 17 minutes.

Are there no more riddles to be solved? Do you perhaps think that your riddles are way too easy to solve?

Here is an easy one just to get the ball rolling.

You enter a very cold room and with you, you have a match box with only one match in it. There is a lamp and a candle in the room. Which one would you light first?

Nice Q, Matthys. :thumbs_up: Actually, that one works best when you ask it at a party, because people don't have time to think on it. :wink:

Definitely an animal, Matthys, and I had a feeling that would be a little too easy.

OWN, why did I know that you were going to go there :lol:

Philip1, a frog it is :thumbs_up:

You're IT!
