Bumping this thread cos I really wanted to put something here when it was originally created, but couldn't think of/find anything good. However, this brain teaser has been going around lately and I'm in the process of trying to figure it out, join me jump.gif Get the aul' noggin' workin' mellow.gif (I don't know why I said that)

Please use spoiler tags.

If Teresa's daughter is my daughter's mother, what am I to Teresa?

a. Grandmother
b. Mother
c. Daughter
d. Granddaughter
e. I am Teresa

Ooh this was fun biggrin.gif I tried doing it representing me and Teresa as letters but idk if I got the right answer ~

Teresa = a
Me = b

(-/+1 = generation)

a - 1 = b - 1 + 1

a - 1 = b

Teresa's daughter = me

Like with algebra in math I thought I work it out in bits:

Your daughter's mother would be you or your wife, so Teresa's daughter is your wife, unless you're female in which case you would be that.

Therefore Teresa would be your mother, in law but that's not an option, so I'm lost, lol

EDIT: I am with Teresa's daughter option too, yay

The way I figured out I am Teresa's daughter was that I tried to picture it. I know someone called Teresa so I kinda used her as an example laugh.gif So I pictured like, there's Teresa and she has a daughter. Her daughter is my daughter's mother. Like Spadam said, my daughter's mother has to be either me or my wife/partner. If it's my partner, then that would make Teresa my mother-in-law, but there's no option for me to be Teresa's in-law so that must mean I am Teresa's daughter herself.

The day before yesterday, Agnes was 7 years old. Next year, she'll turn 10. How is this possible?

This is a good one

The statement is made on 1 January. The day before yesterday (30 December) she was still 7. The following day was her eighth birthday. Next 31 December (i.e. this year) she will be nine. On 31 December next year, she will be ten.

Oh of course, it sounds quite obvious now laugh.gif I'm never any good with these kinds of things so it's not surprising :')

No idea what I'm supposed to doing for that one though, GHOTI spells GHOTI? Is it supposed to stand for something, I don't know tongue.gif
