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

Sorry to say, can it be called a logic puzzle ?

I know~
A boy drew the drawing and a strong wind blew and now the paper he was drawing on is in the air, not on the ground!

No pears on the ground and none on the tree after a wind. If the wind was strong enough to blow the pears off the tree then it also blew the leaves. Hence underneath the tree was covered with leaves and the pairs fell on the leaves.They did not touch the ground. mckiert

This one is so simple! On a cherry tree there are cherries. On a mango tree there are mangos. And on a pear tree there are pears, no bananas, no apples, no oranges! There were no pears on the tree before the wind came. It says nothing about pears actual being on the tree!

I am amazed at the answers given here!!!

The trees are in the garden. The wind blew off the pears and they landed in the garden, not the ground.

Answer: The pears are in the garden.

some thing caught the pears from when they fell off of the tree so logically, the pears would now be on neither the tree or the ground.

My other solution is that the pears are on one of the other trees in the first place (refering to your "few trees in a garden" fact) the wind blew the wrong tree, therefore not touching the tree containing the pears

hope im right

P.S. Good riddle, i enjoyed coming up with two solutions lol

After the wind blew the pairs were falling off the tree and were, at that point in time, neither on the ground or in the tree.

Maybe the pear tree was on another tree as indicated in one of the lines "On one there is a pear tree" thus when the wind blew the tree fell down but all the pears stayed on the pear tree

Someone took the pears off the tree before the wind blew so there were not any pears on the ground or in the tree
