# Riddles

1. I like to solve some riddles while I'm online sometimes when there's not much to do. Anyways I thought we could start a thread where we could post riddles and have people try and guess them, so here one to start us off :

If there is a basket of 13 apples and you take three of them, how many apples do you have?

a.) 10
b.) 1
c.) 0
d.) 3

2. ummm..is it three? i'm not very good at riddles!

3. yes, you got it right! Most people make the mistake of saying 10 but nobody really asked how many remained inside the basket...

anyways here's another one:
