Puzzles and Riddles That You may Find Interesting
It is a growing list of puzzles and riddles that I felt attracted to and solved. The puzzles belong to all major categories. Each puzzle is divided into two parts - the puzzle and its solution.
A solution focuses on each little step of thought that leads to the solution. And it relies heavily on problem solving strategies and techniques as well as reasoning. Reasoning is my favorite topic - there is so many types and forms of reasoning!
Problem solving techniques are merrily used. But these days, that is during last part of 2021, I favor Question, answer and analysis technique to crack many hard nuts.
Enough of monologue. Go ahead. Taste for yourself. Who is not fond of challenging brain teasers!
Quick jump links to the categories are,
- Mathematical puzzles
- Logic puzzles
- River crossing puzzles
- Ball weighing puzzles
- Matchstick puzzles.
Just click on any of the above links to go through the particular category chosen and to return click on your browser back button.
These are the puzzles that I couldn't categorize comfortably. Usually a riddle is small having a small number of key mysteries to unravel. But you will find some of the riddles not easy to conquer.
Each of these puzzles is predominantly math heavy. Some amount of math you would surely need to solve a puzzle of this category.
But I have taken special care to keep the math simple (simply because I don't know complex math). Even such a hard one like Monkey and coconuts I have solved using Class ten level math that should be understood by most if not all.
Just like math puzzles, these are logic heavy. I mean heavily dependent on formal logic that involves truth, falsity, implications and so on.
Though logic is a part of math only, in puzzles, logic demands a separate category. These are especially interesting.
This category has a small number of puzzles but these are highly popular and engaging ones.
This is also a small category with only a few puzzles. But again these are of a kind as the saying goes.
None of these are easy to solve, but again not too hard to understand the solution also.
This is my favorite category and I always keep a large box of matchsticks within reach to play with when I feel the need.
It is a wonder how many engaging creations can be made with these innocuous little sticks!
