Awesome World War Story Brain Teaser
A women was telling the heroic tale of her late husband to her grandchildren.
'When the First World War was about to end, your grandpa was awarded for his extreme bravery and heroism. While on the war, an enemy threw a grenade at their troupe. But before it could explode, your grandpa picked it up and threw it back on the enemy battalion. For this, he was awarded a sword with the engraving - 'Awarded for portrayal of extreme bravery and valor in the World War I'.'
Upon hearing this, one of the grand child stood up and said, 'You are fooling us with false story.'
The story was indeed fake. But how did he come to know that it was not true?
The sword could not have the words 'World War I' engraved on it. At that time, only one world war had taken place. No one knew that a second was to happen in future. Thus if it was engraved, the mention of the number was impossible.
I am a book lover and i saw a book for Pound 97.
I am short of money , so i borrowed Pound 50 from my sister and 50 from my brother = Pound 100.
I bought the book, and had Pound 3 change. I gave brother Pound 1 and my sister Pound 1 and kept the other Pound 1 for myself. Now I owe my mum Pound 49 and my brother Pound 49. 49+49 = 98 + my Pound 1 = 99.
I borrowed my parents (Pound 50 + Pound 50 = Pound 100).
I bought the book for Pound 97 and i had Pound 3 change.
So, the money that i borrowed and bought the book are Pound 100 (borrowing money)
and the change Pound 3 also the borrowing money the book is Pound 97
Total: Pound 97 + Pound 3(the change) = Pound 100
The money that i used to buy the book all i borrowed.
Pound 97 is the borrowing money, change: Pound 3 also the borrowing money. Pound 97 + Pound 3 = Pound 100
Two friends , Torres and Lampard, meet after a long time.
Torres: Hey, how are you man?
Lampard: Not bad, got married and I have three kids now.
Torres: That's awesome. How old are they?
Lampard: The product of their ages is 72 and the sum of their ages is the same as your birth date.
Torres: Cool..But I still don't know.
Lampard: My eldest kid just started taking piano lessons.
Torres: Oh now I get it.
The sum of their ages is the same as your birth date. That could be anything from 1 to 31 but the fact that Torres was unable to find out the ages, it means there are two or more combinations with the same sum. From the choices above, only two of them are possible now.

You are given with two ropes with variable width. However if we start burning both the ropes, they will burn at exactly same time i.e. an hour. The ropes are non-homogeneous in nature. You are asked to measure 45 minutes by using these two ropes.
How can you do it?
Please note that you can’t break the rope in half as it is being clearly stated that the ropes are non-homogeneous in nature.
All you have to do is burn the first rope from both the ends and the second rope from one end only simultaneously. The first rope will burn in 30 minutes (half of an hour since we burned from both sides) while the other rope would have burnt half. At this moment, light the second rope from the other end as well. Where, the second rope would have taken half an hour more to burn completely, it will take just 15 minutes as we have lit it from the other end too.
Thus you have successfully calculated 30+15 = 45 minutes with the help of the two given ropes.
