To all of you who replied, thank you very much. I need help with a few riddles.

1)Eternally I am 1 to 6,
eternallyI am 15 to 20,
I am always 5,
but I am never ever 21 unless I am flying,
what am I ???

2) I am in the sea BUT not in the water
I start in March and end in December
You find me neither in peace nor war
Many have me but few don't
I am in the shadows but not in a dark place
You see me twice in 2004

3) A man has to take two pills each day, at the exact same time or he will die. If he only takes one or he takes two of the same pill he will die. Both medications look the same and are the same weight. One day he drops both open pill bottles scattering the pills across the floor. There are two pills left in one bottle. How can he take his pills so he won't die?

4)Thousands of us all around you.
We protect you all the time.
Yet you treat us badly.
You burn us in public buildings
to make you seem better.
You try to make us straight
but most of us refuse usually.
When we are dead, you are pleased.
Yet, when we are gone, you are sad.
What are we?

5)What is always before you, yet you never see it?

I have a few more I can't solve, but I'll post them later. Again, I know they're hard, but thank you to everyone who attempts to and who actually does solve them. Good luck!

Hello AnneC,

I dont understand how do ten portions have 50% of A and 50% of B?. If I make 20 portions then it will be 50% of A and B. For the ratio, it is assumed that the mixing has been done well.

Let us wait for the correct answer.

I didn't mean that there are 10 portions that have 50% of A and 50% of B, what I meant was that on average the portions have a fifty-fifty ratio, but this isn't necessarily the case with every individual portion. I just said 10 portions, because I thought that you were talking about 10 portions, but the number of portions is of course irrelevant.

Your solution is correct when it is assumed that the mixing has been done exactly right, but I'm not sure this is a correct assumption.

I'm not sure anyone (on this forum) knows the correct answer, we could be waiting for a longtime Emotion: smile

"I have NO IDEA, but try to solve this:
First think of the person who lives in disguise, who deals in secrets and tells naught but lies.
Second, tell me what's always the last thing to mend, the middle of middle and end of the end. thirdly please give me the sound often heard, during the search for a hard-to-find word. Now string all three together and answer me this; what creature would you be uniwilling to kiss? if you're obsessed with harry Potter you'll know this."

It's a spider, and yes, I'm obsessed with Harry Potter. Emotion: smile
I am obsessed with Harry Potter, but I don't want to spoil it for those people who are still thinking......Emotion: wink

answer to .1
A die: you'll find the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6 - one on each side of a die (Eternally I am 1 to 6,)
When the die is on a flat surface, the numbers showing will add up to a umber from 15 - 20.
When the die is "resting", only 5 numbers always showing.
When the die is thrown, all sides are visible and they total 21.
