The RULE: In order to solve it, you are allowed only to ask me yes/no questions. And I may answer only No, Yes and Run-time error (in case neither Yes nor No fit).

Here's the riddle:

A little girl and a little guy were walking and suddenly wanted some peach juice. The girl said: "I want two glasses of peach juice". The guy said he wanted one.

They go to a bar and the boy buys five glasses of peach juice, but takes only three glasses, leaving the other two on the counter.

He gives two glasses to the girl, as she asked, and takes one for himself (as he wanted).

QUESTION: What's the matter? Why did he do so?
«- Does he work in that Bar ?» — Nope. He is too young to work.

P.S.: If you like your pencil so mush, you may use black paper.
- Is he an idiot ?

P.S : NEVER MIND !
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Nice riddle

Does the bar cater only to adults?

If so, did the boy lie to say that he was buying for their parents as well?

HJ
Mm ... you said they were too young ...

Were they able to count and understand numbers?

Did they ask specifically for "five glasses"?
Or did they ask, say, for two glasses, then adding, say, two more and another?
Ant_222Tanit, your question reminded me of an anecdote in which a programmer, before going to bed, leaves on his bedside-table two glasses: one with water and one emty. The first one is for the case he'll want to drink at night, the other — for the case he won't want to.
Nice one!
Heebiejeebies: «Does the bar cater only to aduls» — No. Otherwise I think they wouldn't have let the children in.

Tanit:

«Were they able to count and understand numbers?» — I'd like to raise a run-time error, but since the riddle seems quite hard anyway, I'll ask you: it is the boiy who bought the five glasses, so why do ask all tions about "them"?

Assuming you mean the boy:

«Did they ask specifically for "five glasses"?
Or did they ask, say, for two glasses, then adding, say, two more and another?ݟ»

He asked for five glasses at once.

Sorry for posting as anon and for typos.

Here's a corrected sentence from the above post:
«I'll ask you: it is the boy who bought the five glasses, so why do you ask all questions about "them"?»

Why not?
By the way, you didn't answer one of my question, did you?

Was the boy able to count and understand the meaning of numbers?
Did only the boy speak to the bartender?

Tanit:
«Why not?» — because if the boy can count well and the girl can't, what should I answer? Neither Yes nor No would work...

«Was the boy able to count and understand the meaning of numbers?» — Yes. And he was pretty good at that! Sorry for missing this question.

«Did only the boy speak to the bartender?» — Yes.
