Eyes and PlumsRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
A man without eyes, saw plums on a tree.
He did not take plums and he did not leave plums.
How could this be?
HintThe riddle lies in the use of plurals.
AnswerHe did not have eyes, he had one eye. He saw two plums on a tree. He took one and left one, so he did not take "plums" or leave "plums".
