I came across a very good puzzle. I have reproduced the same as it was worded….!

Let's play a little game.  Please snap your fingers.  Then, 1 minute later please snap your fingers again.  And so it goes on.  Each time you double the time between the snaps, so you snap your fingers again after 2 minutes (from the beginning).  Then snap your fingers after 4 minutes (from the beginning).
Then snap your fingers after 8 minutes (from the beginning).
How many snaps will you make in a year?

 

So the game starts …..Now….

Well, technically, I will have either snapped 0 times, because I'm a rebel who refuses to follow instructions, or way more than 19, because I snap my fingers at other times.

 

What? This is the Logic/Math section, isn't it?

 

Fine, then, I'll retreat back into the dark depths of the Word Riddle section...  :dry:

Not correct. Sorry...!

It seems that sometimes we take a puzzle lightly, as we think it has easy answer. Though this perticular puzzle looks like a math problem, but if we do not go for the depth of the question then we donot find the right answer. Important thing to notice is that the time interval between the snaps is from the 'Begining' The right answer is:

Spoiler for right answer
 There are more simpler ways to solve it.....
