Have you ever stumbled upon some riddles that made you think: “Is it even possible to solve this?” but still went on to solve it after giving a lot of thought ? If yes, then you are again about to have a taste of such impossible riddles to make you think and think and think unless you either give up or conquer it.
We are going to present two such impossible riddles in front of you and even if you fail to answer, just give a deeper thought before looking into the answer. So without wasting any time, let’s start with our first riddle.
1. An Amazing Wish
Thousands of years ago, lived one of the greatest saint of his time who was known for his amazing magical powers. He was so generous that he never stood behind in helping people whenever they needed help from him. Be it for food, money or shelter, he gave away everything that he could to bring smile on people’s face.
But even though he was so helpful, he believed in helping only those people who did hard work. He never gave away anything for free. Even a beggar would have to water the plants at least then the saint would give him food. He wanted people to learn the value of hard work.
One such hard working person was Jack. Jack was a little child when his father sent him to get education from the saint. Jack not only studied in his cottage but also everyday he cleaned saint’s room, watered plants, cleaned the garden, took care of saint just like he would do for his father. He was a very obedient and hard working kid.
Years later, Jack got married and also the saint became old. One day he called Jack and said: “Son, you have been so devoted to me all these years, I want to do something for you”. He asked him to make one wish and he would fulfill it with his magical powers. Jack said : “I need sometime to think about it” and then he left.

Jack gave a lot of thought into what should be a proper wish. Firstly he asked his mother who was blind. She said she has only wish and that is to see Jack’s kid. Secondly he asked his wife and she said she wants a baby boy. At last he went on to ask his father. His father said he wants to become rich.
Listening to the individual wishes of his mother, wife and father, Jack thought of an unique wish that would fulfill each of the wishes of his mother, wife and father.
Can you tell what wish did Jack might have made in front of the Saint that fulfilled the wishes of his parents and wife? Give this impossible riddle a little thought before checking the answer.
Answer : Jack said : “My wish is I want my mother to watch her grandson playing in a royal palace“. This way his mother’s wish of seeing her grandchild, his wife’s wish of having a baby boy and father’s wish of getting rich; all were fulfilled.

2. Guess the mathematical relationship
In the above image, it is given that :
- AB = 2 = D/B
- BC = 6 = R/C and
- CD = ? = L
Then find the value of ‘?’.
Answer : As difficult as this question seems, in reality it is very easy if you analyze the relationship between the alphabets and numbers associated with them.
Firstly, AB = 2 = D/B is given. Clearly if you assign numbers to alphabets, starting with A = 1, B = 2, C = 3 and so on, AB = 1×2 = 2. Also D/B = 4/ 2 = 2.
Similarly, in the second statement, BC = 6 = R/C because BC = 2×3 = 6 and R/C = 18/3 = 6. Here R= 18 because R is the 18th alphabet starting with A = 1.
Hence no doubt in the last statement, CD = ? = L, that means value question mark is either CD = 3×4 = 12 or L = 12 because L is the 12th alphabet. Thus ? = 12.
3. Age Dilemma
In the year 1990, a person was 15 years old whereas in the year 1995, the same person was 10 years old. How is this possible?
Answer : Truly an impossible riddle, isn’t it? Well, not exactly because again we can take help of logic here to simplify the problem. As the years progress, age has decreased. This could mean only one thing, the person was born in 1990BC because BC is counted in a manner opposite to AD.
