Question

Guest

A man decided it was time to discover how smart his son really was, so he gave the boy one coin. "Find something that feeds us, provides drink, feeds our cow, and that we can plant to grow more."

The son began the journey to the market and, destrought, began to cry. A woman nearby asked him what was wrong and he explained the situation. She then told him not to be so sad because she had the answer. After telling him what to buy, he joyfully went to the market, bought the item and went home. When he returned, his father was pleased that the boy found the right thing. What did he buy?

He took the coin, and exchanged it for more coins of a lesser value.
