An interesting paragraph.

Question

Posted · Report post

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.

there isnt any e's, which is pretty strange since, just in this sentence here, there are exactly 14 e's

Actually think about what you just said. If you don't count the "e's" part and you only take out 1 e, therefore making it 15 e's...

But there are two "e's". If they are omitted, then "e" appears 14 times.

The only oddity that I spotted is that the most common letter used in English the letter E was not in the paragraph at all

now a quick edit later i see i that this was solved quite a few posts ago

Ahh...Good point...I missed the fact that he had "e's" in there twice. I was still counting the e in the first "e's" since I'd have figured he'd not think about the last e since it's after he stated the number of e's in his sentence.

Ahh, but if the sentence had been grammatically correct there would have been 15 e's excluding the "e's". =D

Not only are there no E's, but every other letter in the alphabet is used. I thought that was pretty cool...
