"Think of words ending in -GRY
Angry and hungry are two of them
There are only three words in the English language.
What is the third word?
The word is something that everyone uses every day.
If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is

I think this has no answer the proper one is:

There are at least three words
In the English language that end in g or y.
One of them is “hungry”, and another one is “angry”.
There is a third word, a short one,
Which you probably say every day.
If you are listening carefully to everything I say,
You just heard me say it three times.
What is it?

A man has 60 p in his pocket, made up of two coins.

If one of the coins isn't a 50 p piece what are the two coins in his pocket ?


(Tis a poor one, that I was told by my Year 7 maths teacher!)

water- you can say the water is driven up the beach, and slicing it has no effect.

Npoe not the answer - water is never really whole (I thought the answer was snow (thinking along the same lines as you) but the right answer fits far far better)
