These sorts of dumb riddles may often be so ludicrous that we falsely assume there is a right solution when, in fact, they are usually just absurd riddles that are entertaining anyway. The “who am I?” variations of these idiotic, stupid riddles also make you question your intelligence.

**Q. A man is twice as old as his little sister. He is also half as old as their dad. In 50 years, his sister will be half as old as their dad is now. How old is the man now?****A. **100 years old

**Solution:**

The man is 50 years old. Let’s break it down:

Let the sister’s age be S.

The man’s age is 2S.

The dad’s age is 4S (since the man is half as old as the dad).

In 50 years, the sister’s age will be S + 50.

The dad’s current age is 4S.

Given: S + 50 = 4S / 2.

S + 50 = 2S.

S = 50.

Therefore, the man is 2S = 2 * 50 = **100 years** old.

**Q. The sum of the ages of a mother and daughter is 45. Five years ago, the mother was three times as old as the daughter. How old is the daughter now?A. **13.75 years old

**Solution:**

Let the daughter’s current age be D and the mother’s current age be M.

Given: M + D = 45.

Five years ago, the mother’s age was M – 5 and the daughter’s age was D – 5.

Given: M – 5 = 3(D – 5).

Substitute M = 45 – D into the second equation:

45 – D – 5 = 3(D – 5).

40 – D = 3D – 15.

40 + 15 = 3D + D.

55 = 4D.

D = 55 / 4.

D = 13.75.

Therefore, the daughter is **13.75 years old.**

**Q. A man is three times as old as his son. In 15 years, the man will be twice as old as his son. How old is the son now?A. **15 years old

**Solution:**

Let the son’s current age be S and the man’s current age be M.

Given: M = 3S.

In 15 years, the man’s age will be M + 15 and the son’s age will be S + 15.

Given: M + 15 = 2(S + 15).

Substitute M = 3S into the second equation:

3S + 15 = 2(S + 15).

3S + 15 = 2S + 30.

3S – 2S = 30 – 15.

S = 15.

Therefore, the son is **15 years **old.

**Que :**What comes once in a minute, twice in a moment, but never in a thousand years?

**Q. A mother is five times as old as her son. In 15 years, the mother will be three times as old as her son. How old is the son now?A. **15 years

**Solution:**Let the son’s current age be S and the mother’s current age be M.

Given: M = 5S.

In 15 years, the mother’s age will be M + 15 and the son’s age will be S + 15.

Given: M + 15 = 3(S + 15).

Substitute M = 5S into the second equation:

5S + 15 = 3(S + 15).

5S + 15 = 3S + 45.

5S – 3S = 45 – 15.

2S = 30.

S = 15.

Therefore, the son is** 15 years** old.

**Q. A mother is three times as old as her daughter. After 12 years, the mother will be twice as old as the daughter. How old is the mother now?A. **36 years old

**Solution:**

Let the daughter’s current age be D and the mother’s current age be M.

Given: M = 3D.

In 12 years, the mother’s age will be M + 12 and the daughter’s age will be D + 12.

Given: M + 12 = 2(D + 12).

Substitute M = 3D into the second equation:

3D + 12 = 2(D + 12).

3D + 12 = 2D + 24.

3D – 2D = 24 – 12.

D = 12.

Therefore, the mother is 3D = 3 * 12 = **36 years** old.

**Que :**I am invisible, but you can see me. I cause things to disappear, but I am not a magician. What am I?
