Young Old Lady
Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Whilst relieving his bladder in a shop doorway one Friday night, Mad Ade met a lady who has 2 children, 3 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. The lady who had all of these kids told Mad Ade that she was only 25.
How is this possible?
The lady was born on 29th February. Her birthday comes once every 4 years. Thus, her age is 25, but she is actually 100 years old. By the way, she reported Mad Ade to the police.

|I really hate these "Feb. 29th" teasers. If someone lives from 1975 to 2075, then they are 100 years old. Just because Feb. 29th only comes every 4 years, it doesn't make the person any younger. Saying that her age is 25 years is completely false. This should have been in the "Trick" category, because it is certainly not logical.|

|she was actually a "step mother". she married a much older man, who was the father of the 2 children, 3 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. She was 25 and married a much older man. This is the most logical answer. Mad-Ade's answer holds no logic. It is trickery damn you!!!! :-)|

|I have been told before while talking about this with a friend who is a legal bod that someone in this instane can claim to be 25, but not 25 'years old' as by stating the word years you are indicating duration of life. by saying 'I am 25' you are just stating birthdays. He told us some long (and very) boring story of a case invoving this. |

|She "told Mad Ade that she was only 25." Answer: she lied. |

|I agree with Bobbrt. And mad-ade, calling a valid criticism "sour grapes" is immature. The February 29th trick is cheap and unoriginal.|
