Riddle: Frank was born in 1933 and died in 1946 at the age of 57. How can this be?
Answer: The numerical 1933 and 1946 do not signify the year of birth or death. Nowhere in the question is the word ‘years’ mentioned. Thus 1933 signifies either the room number or the ward number of the hospital Frank was born in.
Similarly, 1946 is the room or ward number where Frank died. Hence his age is irrelevant concerning 1933 and 1946. His related age of 57 thus has nothing to do with them.
