Fell From A StarRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
It fell from a star,
But not very far.
It seems to fly
Above you and I.
Look further down to see
Cousin Jay below us three.
Jump down further to see an empty space.
Tell me what "it" is, and where is this place?
HintAbove the star you may just find
A place designated for a function of some kind.
To its left is seven and to its right you'll find nine,
I should tell you that there is no in front or behind.
AnswerBy looking at the standard US-style keyboard, you see the answer is the number 8.
The 8 is below the asterisk, though on the same button.
It is above the letters U & I.
Underneath those is the letter J.
Skip a row down and you see the space bar.
Above the 8 are the F6 and F7 function keys.
To the left is the seven, which has the & symbol.
To the right is the number nine.
