Answer:  Courts. All of the others are anagrams of each other.

A pipe, a carrot, and a couple sticks are lying together in a field. Why?

Riddle:  A pipe, a carrot, and a couple sticks are lying together in a field. Why?

Does it seem strange to you that these unrelated things are lying together on the floor? As strange as it may be, there must be a logical reason for this. After all, nobody leaves those things together for no reason, right?

 

Think of something that uses a pipe, a carrot, and a couple sticks together. It would be more correct to say that these are part of something, rather than using the word “use”. This thing is of course nothing more than a snowman. When the snowman melted, the pipe, carrot and sticks fell to the ground.

Answer:  They’re what is left of a melted snowman.

If boiling water is poured into a thick drinking glass as well as a very thin wine glass, of the two, which is more likely to crack?

Riddle:  If boiling water is poured into a thick drinking glass as well as a very thin wine glass, of the two, which is more likely to crack?

When you read the riddle, you may get the idea that thin glass will break sooner. However, the answer is not what you think. The thick glass is more likely to crack since glass is a poor conductor of heat.

 

In a thin glass, the heat passes more quickly from the glass into the surrounding air, causing the glass to expand equally. When hot water is poured into a thick glass, the inner surface expands, but the outer surface does not. It is this extreme stress on the glass that causes it to crack.

The answer:  The thick glass is more likely to crack since glass is a poor conductor of heat. In a thin glass, the heat passes more quickly from the glass into the surrounding air, causing the glass to expand equally. When hot water is poured into a thick glass, the inner surface expands, but the outer surface does not. It is this extreme stress on the glass that causes it to crack.
