On a fine day, a ship was parked at a port. It could accommodate 60 passengers, but as soon as the 59th passenger got on, it started to sink. There were no disasters, accidents or anything wrong whatsoever, but the ship kept on sinking! Why?
It was a submarine
A plane crashed, and every single person on board died as a result. Yet, there were two survivors. How is this possible?
They were married
I had 27 flowers. Sadly, all but 14 died. How many are left?
The plane one is great! I kept thinking that there were two people with parachutes? It crashed into a home with two occupants but they both survived? Oh come on now! Not that I overthought it....
Fun, but I'm afraid I don't understand some of these. I can subtract 5 from 25 any amount of times, not just once. 25 - 5 - 5 = 15. Submarines are, by convention, not ships but boats. What's the deal with the toaster question, is there a joke?
You have it the wrong way round. A ship is distinguishable from a boat because it has many sails or large engines, is meant for ocean or deep water travel and, in some nautical contexts you’d only refer to a vessel as a boat if it you could fit one inside of another vessel (hence, a cruise ship may have numerous lifeboats aboard).
single doesn't mean not married, just not in a relationship, so could you accept 'couple' etc.
Also you can subtract 5 from 25 loads of times! I did it last week, I did it yesterday, I did it just now, i can keep doing it as much as i like! you just can't do it multiple times in a row...
(a "single" person is one who's not married)
Most people reply they would put toast in a toaster. That's a common trick question.
