If it takes four men one day to build a wall, how long does it take
60,000 men to build a similar wall?
Every day at noon a boat leaves Le Havre for New York while another
boat leaves New York for Le Havre. The ocean crossing takes seven

On a clock the three hands - the second, minute and hour hands - are on the same axis. How often in a 24 hour day will the second hand be parallel to either of the two other hands?
Of the 12 shortest trees, A is the tallest. Nevertheless it is
the shortest in its column.
Of the 10 tallest trees, B is the shortest. Nevertheless it is
the tallest in its row.
The row where B is and the column where A is intersect at a
tree. Let us call this tree C.
Now, C is definitely shorter than B because B is the tallest in
C's row. In terms of height, C < B
And of course, A is definitely shorter than C because A is the
shortest in C's column.
In terms of height, A < C
If A < C and C < B then A < C
Thus A < B
So B is taller than A.
