Each Took a Pear

Twelve pears hanging high, twelve men passing by.
Each took a pear and left eleven hanging there.
How can this be?


  1. Each is the name of the first man to pass by the tree

  2. Or the first one took one off the tree, and each successive guy took the pear from the guy who had it.

  3. Each is the name of the guy who pulled the pear off the tree.

    Abe, I think your solution works too.

    I love it when there's more than one way to answer these.
