    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 ?

    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)
