Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
Can you think of a sentence that ends with the word 'the'?
...you just read one.

|mad-ade is correct; by the letter of grammatical law, a "phrase" does not comprise a clause. in this case, the question is an independent clause. it would be better worded if you substituted "ind clause" or "sentence" for "phrase"|

|How about "T-H-E spells the word THE"?|

|how about "what the...?"|

|Not bad for a trick!|

|It was good, but I agree with mad-ade. Oh well, I guess people can just "go with the flow".|

|i guessed the answer, but it was painful to read, since "can you think of a sentence that ends in the word "the"" is not a sentence, but rather a question (as other people have pointed out).|
i wish people would stop mutilating the english language, it makes my brain hurt...

|i knew the answer easily, even though i did think that it was actually a question.|

|you guys who say the question is wrong are wrong. can you think of a sentence that ends with the word the is an interrogative sentence making it a sentence. all sentences dont have to end with a period or be declaritives. dur du dur! |

|No. The ? ends the sentence not the.|

|Another answer/My opinion:What the...?|
