You are on an island in the middle of a lake. The lake is in a remote part of the country and there has never been a bridge connecting the island to the mainland.

Every day a tractor and wagon gives hay rides around the island. Puzzled as to how the tractor had gotten onto the island, you ask around and find out that the tractor was not transported to the island by boat or by air. Nor was it built on the island.

Explain how the tractor got there?


lake isn't deep enough?

You have to find out without any measuring implements and without removing any wine from the barrel.


they can tilt the barrel so that the wine stops at the brink of the barrel. since the barrel has no lid, they can look into it and check if any portion of the circular base of the cylindrical barrel is revealed.if so, then the barrel is less than half full.otherwise it is more than or equal to half full.

is it correct?

or if they know the volume of the space inside the barrel they can pour known volume of water to find out who is right.but that would spoil the wine.[:)]

Hey come on what about this one.


The word 'FACETIOUSLY' contains the six vowels, A-E-I-O-U and Y, in their alphabetical order. Can you find another English word that does the same?


abstemiously?

You are in a room that is completly bricked in on all four sides, including the cieling and floor. You have nothing but a mirror and a wooden table in the room with you. How do you get out?


you said 'on all four sides including ceiling and floor'. that means there are two open sides for a room has six sides.

i'm not sure whether or not i got this one right
