Brainteaser Tuesday - Fun & Easy

Here's some brainteasers that take a little less brain power but will work that other muscle...the one that makes you smile. :)

These are groaners, so be careful with these tricky word problems. All is not what it seems!

  1. I have two U.S. coins that add up to fifty-five cents. One is not a nickel. What coins are they?
  2. A certain five letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it. What is the word?
  3. An electric train is traveling northwest at 95 miles per hour, and the wind is blowing southwest at 95 miles per hour. In which direction does the smoke blow?
  4. 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, what's the minimum number of socks you need to take before you're guaranteed to have a pair?
  5. Forward I'm heavy, backwards I'm not. What am I?
Happy Solving!!
