but there werent any pears on this tree...there was no mention of pears,but if your making a new puzzle to solve,i'd say the pear was floating on simply water surrounding the tree..

everybody who keeps saying there are no pears have not read the riddle correctly it states there are "neither pears" on the ground or in the tree so therefore there could be a pear in each place but not more than one!!!! (the plural factor gets you here) so when i read that there were 2 pears (not pairs) to begin with it made a perfectly logical explanation for the riddle... well to me anyways.... :)

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

:huh: Yeah you cant just add stuff at the end, first of all if one pear fell but there were two then one should still be in the tree. oh yeah and if one is on the ground then how can all of a sudden there be none on the ground, but then none in the tree when just one fell, seriously its lame. I think you confused yourself, they say the apple doesnt fall to far from the tree I dont think pears do either.

imagine this:

tree with 2 pears, ground with no pears ... then wind blew
tree with 1 pear, ground with 1 pear - there are not pears on the tree and there are not pears on the ground

I might draw a picture if that is still too complex

I believe that it is that their is one Pear on the tree and one Pear on the ground therefore there are no pairs. This riddle works best when spoken due to the fact that pear and pair are homonyms. It is like this riddle/joke You have 20sick sheep, when spoken aloud it sounds like you are saying you have 26 sheep, one dies how many are left? since it is written down that i said you have 20 sick sheep you would know the answer is 19. However if you say this aloud to someone they would most likely answer 25 because 20 sick sheep sounds a lot like 26 sheep

sorry No avatar and no cool slogan but soon
