1. Which word retains the same pronunciation when you take away four of its five letters?
2. A man was to be sentenced in court, and the judge told him, "You may make a statement. If it is true, I'll sentence you to four years in prison. If it is false, I'll sentence you to six years in prison." After the man made his statement, the judge decided to let him go free. What did the man say?
These are the two other puzzles submitted by Adam. Thanks again, Adam!

2. "you will sentence me to six years in prison"...just a guess...dunno
2 - The man said something negative and/or 'questionable' about the judge. Rather than indicate whether said statement was true or false, the judge just let the man go free ??ReplyDelete
I like the second answer. Blackmail is always an option, right?ReplyDelete
But Dave had them both right, queue and the reply is correct.
He said you will sentence me to six years in prison. It is not a lie so he can not get six years in prison. It is not the truth so he can't get four years. So the judge let him go free.ReplyDelete
I mean, he could have just said "this sentence is a lie." But the six years thing works too. (This riddle makes me question our legal system.)ReplyDelete
2.I think the man said "i have nothing to said." because if the man said any thing...nothing is back from prison.ReplyDelete
