well friends solve them,only if you can
1 If you put a coin in an empty bottle and insert a cork into the neck of the bottle, how could you remove the coin without taking the cork out or breaking the bottle???
2 Your sock drawer contains ten pairs of white socks and ten pairs of black socks. If you're only allowed to take one sock from the drawer at a time and you can't see what color sock you're taking until you've taken it, how many socks do you have to take before you are guaranteed to have at least one matching pair???
3 You drive to the store at 20 mph and return by the same route at 30 mph. Discounting the time spent at the store, what was your average speed???
And if you say correct answer atleast for two then hats off to you.
