Flowers are one of nature's best features as they come in various shapes, colors, and sizes. The first riddle of the day uses common flower names that have been skillfully hidden within synonyms.

This simply means that the answers to the puzzle are words similar to the clues given. The synonyms must also form a flower name. For example: "Small container + To allow" Answer: "Vial + Let", i.e. "violet." Now that you get the picture try solving these problems.

1. An instrument + Flesh around the mouth

2. Foppish + A large wildcat


3. To wed + A soft yellow element

4. A false statement + To be deficient in

5. Indicates an alternative + A child

The last riddle is about 3 brothers who share a unique family sport that involves a non-stop marathon. The oldest is fat and short, so he moves slowly while the middle brother, who is tall and slim, keeps a steady pace. However, the youngest runs the fastest.

While talking about his performance, the other brothers said, "He is young in years, we let him run, because although he is number one, he remains second, in a way." What do you think this means?

Answer to Riddle One

2. Dandelion (dandy + lion)

3. Marigold (marry + gold)

4. Lilac (lie + lack)

5. Orchid (or + kid)

Answer to Riddle 2

Charlie is the opposite gender. Clue 3 states that Jordan is either Sam's only daughter or his brother. However, clue 2 states that Jordan's sister is either Alex or Charlie.

If Jordan is Sam's only daughter, then Jordan cannot have a sister. That means Jordan must be Sam's brother and a male. Since we have established that Jordan is Sam's brother, clue one is no longer valid.

Given that Sam cannot be the only son since he has a brother, Charlie's only son must be Alex. If Charlie's only son is Alex, then from clue two, it is clear that Jordan's sister is Charlie. Therefore all three are males, why Charlie is the only female.
