The following words follow one pattern of having vowels in it...
In banana, 1 vowel and 1 consonant
In Grammer, 2 consonants and 1 vowel...
So, that way all other words are in a pattern.


Thanks for the good idea Loganathan. I would love to answer all your puzzles. I like to have more challenging puzzles ahead. Guys, Be attentive! And make the poster challenged to get more complicated puzzles.

Oh. I don't know this pattern. That's good.

But there is another pattern with these words. Try it and we will have more complicated puzzles later.

Good one Logu,

The answer is, take the 1st alphabet from the word...put it as the last alphabet and spell the word in reverse and you have the original word.... :)

That's correct Doesntmatter. Nice try.

Let's have some more puzzle.


Once there was a bus conductor, who was very rude to his passengers.


One day a beautiful young girl, of around 18 years,tried to board the bus, but he didn't stop the bus.


Unfortunately the beautiful young girl came under the bus and died on the spot. Angry passengers took the conductor to the police station, who in turn took him to the court.

The judge was not at all impressed with him and gave him capital punishment.

He was taken to the electrocution chamber. There was a single chair in the center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. The conductor was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to him. But to everyone's amazement, he survived. The judge decided to set him free, and he returned to his profession.


After a few months, this time, a good looking middle aged woman tried to board the bus but the conductor didn't stop the bus. Unfortunately, this time also, the good looking middle aged woman came under the bus and died on the spot.

Again angry passengers took him to the police station, who in turn took him to the court. The judge took one look at the conductor and gave him capital punishment. The Bus conductor was taken to the same electrocution chamber where there was a single chair in the center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. He was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to him. This time also to everyone's amazement, he survived. The judge decided to set him free, and he returned to his profession.

A couple of months later, an elderly gentleman tried to board the bus. This time the Bus conductor, remembering his earlier experiences, stopped the bus. Unfortunately the elderly gentleman slipped and died due to his injuries. The conductor was taken to the police station and then to the court, to the same judge. Though he hadn't done anything wrong, but considering his past record the judge decided to set an example and gave him capital punishment. The Bus conductor was again taken to the same electrocution chamber where there was a single chair in the center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. He was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to him. This time he died instantly !!!!!!!!!!!


The question is why didn't he die on the first two occasions, but died instantly the third time??


Try to solve it yourselves. This is rather interesting and answer is perfectly logical. If necessary read the puzzle once again.


PS: This puzzle is not created by me. Got it in forwarded mail and you can find it internet as well. But try it yourself.

If it is in India, I think there was a power failure for the first 2 times :D and so he died 3rd time

No. Apply your Physics knowledge :). That's the big clue.

Since banana peel is in the corner..there is nothing else in the room which can block/ conduct electricity to save the conductor....so i am almost certain, physics has nothing to do with this puzzle....:)

No. It's totally based on physics.

But if you know the answer, it would turn out be a joke :)

Re:Puzzles 13 years 2 months ago #1072

DoesntMatter,
Your sentence "block / conduct electricity" has made me think further...
Here, the one which conducts electricity is conductor. That is the conductor himself :D
But how is it related to passing of the current 3rd time when he was the same conductor even the first 2 times???

Good Rupa. You are on correct track. Read the puzzle carefully again and try to find the difference between first 2 times and the third time.

Yes it is a funny riddle...nothing to do with laws of physics...

Conducting / blocking electricity... are they not related to physics? Hmmm.... If it is not physics, then what is it?

Rupa, thanx for teaching physics....

Saying this for the last time (if u get it good...if not oh well), this puzzle has nothing to do with physics..this is a funny puzzle and will just use some terms from physics....
