Brain Teasers

  1. How did he know?
    A man was waiting at an airport for a plane to arrive. Suddenly, he heard someone call his name. Looking up, he saw an old friend of his hurrying toward him. “Hey, Bill!” called his friend. “How are you? I haven’t seen you in years!” “How are you?” exclaimed Bill. “Wow, you look great!”. “I am married now, to somebody you don’t know,” said the other. “This is my daughter.” Bill smiled down at the little girl. “Hi, young lady. What’s your name?” “It’s the same as my mama’s,” said the girl. “Is that so,” said Bill, winking at his friend. “Then your name must be Cindy!”

    Q: How could he possibly know this?

  2. The strange sisters
    It was the first day of school. The teacher had several children in her class. She asked all the new children to write down their names and their date of birth for her. The first two names she looked at were those of girls. She saw that they both had the same last name. They also had the same birthday – June 9,1973. “Will Jane and June Campbell please stand?” asked the teacher. Two girls stood up, and the teacher saw that they were just alike. “Oh, you’re twins,” she said. One of the girls shook her head. “No,” she said. “We’re sisters, but we’re not twins.”

    Q: How could they be sisters and be the same age, but not twins?
