Study this paragraph and all things in it. What is vitally wrong with it? Actually, nothing in it is wrong, but you must admit that it is most unusual. Don't just zip through it quickly, but study it scrupulously. With luck you should spot what is so particular about it and all words found in it. Can you say what it is? Tax your brains and try again. Don't miss a word or a symbol. It isn't all that difficult?

Yes. I often am unable to word a riddle correctly and I copy and paste it from other sources. I do not claim a riddle to be my own unless I specifically say so. However I almost always have heard the riddle before hand.
This is a good example: I have seen this before but was not able to memorize the paragraph.

There shouldn't be a question mark at the end of the last sentence.

We just had this same paragraph a couple of weeks ago. However, in that thread, the OP did not properly divide the paragraph from his instructions and everyone got fubared trying to figure it out.

"the" most commonly used word in the english language is missing also.
