Pears - Back to the Logic Puzzles
There are a few trees in a garden. On one of them, a pear tree, there are pears (quite logical). But after a strong wind blew, there were neither pears on the tree nor on the ground. How come?Spoiler for Solution
it's obvious - the owner of the garden, and the trees, was watching the weather chanel, saw the heavy winds approaching, some miles away, and while the strong wind blew, he went outside, and picked all the pears (number completely irrelevant), and took them inside, so they wouldn't get blown off the tree, damaged, etc. The strong wind blew for a while longer, maybe going over the garden, maybe not, then afterwards there are no pears on the tree, or on the ground.
that's how come!
ETA - oops yeah sorry, what logicalist said!

everybody acts as if there is only one tree, but the problem says there are several.

I know is an old one and I haven't read anyone elses posts yet but my guess is; its on a hill.
exactly! Pears fall on the ground and simply rolled down the hill. In that case number of pears is irrelevant.
