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?
«Was he able to pronounce the word ( three ) correctly ?» — No.
Ant_222«1 - Are both of the kids "normal"? = no problems of any kind (physical, mental, etc.)» — No.
Is the girl the one who has some problems?

We already know that she is not blind, nor dumb -- meaning "not able to speak" -- (in the OP you wrote: "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'.") So, is she deaf?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Tanit:
«Is the girl the one who has some problems?» — No. And therefore not deaf.
Ant_222«1 - Are both of the kids "normal"? = no problems of any kind (physical, mental, etc.)» — No.
Second part:
Is the boy the one who has problems?
Is he blind?
Is he able to speak?
Did he asked for five glasses because he has a problem in saying the word ( three ) .. so that he gave the bartender all the money he had , then he/she gave him five glasses , but he only took 3 as they wanted and left the other 2 ?

Did he asked for five glasses because he can't speak at all ?
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Tanit:

«Is the boy the one who has problems?» — Yes.
«Is he blind?» — No.
«Is he able to speak?» — Yes.
Ant_222Tanit: «Is the boy the one who has problems?» — Yes. «Is he blind?» — No. «Is he able to speak?» — Yes.
So, the boy has some problems and cannot pronounce the word "three". He's not blind, nor dumb.

Does he have a physical problem?
Does he speak the same language as the bartender?
Does he suffer from a form of speech impairment?

Do the haunters play any role in this story?
