Short riddles are short word problems that are designed to be slightly challenging to answer. Short riddles can be found on the Internet or in riddle books, and they often have a rating scale indicating how challenging they are.
Riddles are typically sorted into categories including funny riddles, word play and logic problems. Many are sorted by age group, with riddles for children typically being shorter and less challenging, often using humorous word play. Teachers sometimes use riddles in classroom activities to stimulate brain activity and develop learning skills. Longer riddles are typically designed more for adults, using more logic-based brain teasers and less word play.
