“How does one solve a riddle?” John Tan suddenly asked the group out of the blue!
“There is no hard and fast rule at all. Just read the riddle which may have encapsuled the answer in it,” Chee Kong
volunteered to answer him. “Use our minds to think deeply before giving the answer. There is always a leading thought to stumble us and lead us astray.”
“Sometimes, there are more likely answers to the riddle. If there are, then we have to select and choose the appropriate answer,” Ah Beng offered his opinion when Chee Kong stopped talking.
“Does solving riddles make us wise?” John Tan started his second question.
“I will compare solving a riddle like solving a murder. The habit of solving riddles makes us alert and sharpens our thought processes!” Justin remarked.
