7. When is Cheryl’s birthday?
Recently I came across a riddle in facebook, which was originally intended for 5th grade students in Singapore. It created a lots of interest and discussion in the social media and is continuing in doing so… Hope you would like this
However, the formation of the riddle was somewhat confusing, hence I have modified the wordings (continued after the pic) and attached the original question (as a pic) too.
The modified riddle:
Albert and Bernard just met Cheryl. After talking for a while, Albert asked Cheryl , “When’s your birthday?”
Cheryl thought a second and said, “I’m not going to tell you, but I’ll give you some clues.”
Albert and Bernard said in union…its fine J
Cheryl wrote down a list of 10 dates: May 15, , , , , , , August 14, , and said, “My birthday is one of these”.
Then she whispered in Albert's ear the month — and only the month — of her birthday. To Bernard, she whispered the day, and only the day.
Then she asked Albert, “Can you figure it out now?”
Albert: I don’t know when your birthday is, but I know Bernard doesn’t know, either.
Bernard: I didn’t know originally, but now I do.
Albert: Well, now I know, too!
Q: When is Cheryl’s birthday?
Note: Basic assumption holds good.
