Riddles are fun and allow one to think out of the box. While it may take a while to figure out some answers to the tricky questions or clues, riddles keep one on their toes.


The #riddle of the day is divided into three sections. Find out how to move one letter from one word to another to create a new pair of similar terms.

You need to realize that the answers are not usually from external forces but are right in front of your eyes, which makes the entire brain exercise more fun.


Reading the hints, you need to find words that relate to them and correlate with each statement, and below are the key tips to the answers. Ready? Try answering the ones below.

The first is needed to make quotes, and it frequently sticks up when it is time for tea in the afternoon.


The second's most significant distinction is found bearing the symbol of love that is bound.

The third should be most prominent, but that can depend, never standing alone or it may offend.

The fourth is often used when choosing or if you need a weapon for protection.

The fifth is the fattest and oddest by far and can sometimes be found wrestling war.

What are they?

ANSWER: The digits of the hand! (The order on the poem is the pinky ring finger, middle finger index, or pointer finger or thumb).


The pinky hits the quotation mark on the keyboard when typing, and people often raise their pinky off the cup when drinking tea. The ring finger bears a wedding band when married.

The middle finger is an obscene gesture when standing alone. You point with the index finger to make a selection or use it to pull a trigger on a gun. The thumb is used for thumb wrestling.


In English, "re is a prefix that usually means "again," such as in "rebuild" (build again). However, there are many other words with the "re" which have a totally different meaning without the prefix.

You will find two definitions, one for a word starting with "re" and one for the remaining term without the prefix (the description is provided first).


EXAMPLE: Vehicle wheel/cease employment

ANSWER: Tire/ retire

Got it? Now find the confusing terms.

One who belongs/bring a past event to mind

Newspaper employee/hotel employee

Money for the poor/kingdoms

Unit of money/not long ago


Income/event location

At ease/cause sharp pain


Arrived at/felt long-term pain


Reporter / porter

Member / Remember

Cent / Recent

Alms / Realms

Revenue / Venue

Pair / Repair

Reached / Ached

Resting / Sting



Use the given words, and by moving a single letter from one word to the other, make a pair of synonyms or near-synonyms.

EXAMPLE: Boast – Hip, move the 's' from 'Boast' to 'Hip,' creating two synonyms: Boat – Ship.

Pain – Nil

War – Zoned

Routing – Tip

Shot – Teaming

Right – Blight








Pin – Nail

Ward – Zone

Outing – Trip

Hot – Steaming

Bright – Light
