What are the five most difficult riddles in the world?
Answer == The difficulty of a riddle is dependent on the person who asks it. A question can be simple or really hard depending on how it is worded. Consider:
* My weight for words against the wind? * What's heavy, ornamental, almost useless and sits in your office? * If I sit where I am told then all your letters you will hold. What am I? The first one was meant to be hard the last easy, but they all signify the same thing.
Some riddles that have stood the test of time.
- What goes on four legs in the morning, two legs in the day, and three legs in the evening? The riddle of the sphinx, from the legend of Oedipus. Bronze-age Greece.
- What has three heads, six legs, two arms, and two wings? Riddle recovered from clay tables in the excavated library of Asphrabal, bronze-age Assyria.
- The riddle of the Green Knight. From 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight', dark-age England.
- If one grain of rice were to be put on the first square, and two on the next, and then four on the next and so on till all 64 squares are visited then shall this suffice for my payment? From Medieval India.
- Out of the eater has came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. Sampson's riddle from bronze-age Israel.

Chinese include ( Japanese and Korean) + Arabic.. obviously the alphabet AND the pronunciation are unbelievable ! Answer Polish There is no such thing. Language difficulty d…epends on the person. Other factors are the learner's native language and their familiarity with the target language's culture.

1. Corn Annual Production 2008: 822,712,527 tons Average Yield 2008: 5.1 tons/hectare The rundown: Corn is the most produced grain in the world. It's a staple food for the m…ajority of sub-Saharan Africa, and is a great source of carbohydrates, protein, iron, vitamin B, and minerals. Plus it is being used more and more for ethanol. 2. Wheat Annual production 2008: 689,945,712 tons Average Yield 2008: 3.1 tons/hectare The rundown: Wheat covers more of the earth than any other crop. It's a resilient crop, growing in the dry and cold climates where rice and corn cannot. Wheat is the leading source of vegetable protein for humans worldwide. 3. Rice Annual Production 2008: 685,013,374 tons Average Yield 2008: 4.3 tons/hectare The rundown: Rice may be even more important than corn as a food crop, since corn is used for other purposes outside consumption. Thus, rice is the source of more than 1/5th of all calories consumed by humans. It may also be the thirstiest crop: according to the U.N., farmers need at least 2,000 liters of water to make one kilogram of rice. 4. Potatoes Annual Production 2008: 314,140,107 tons Average Yield 2008: 17.2 tons/hectare The rundown: Potatoes are the number one non-grain food product. Originally grown in the Andes, the Spanish introduced Europe to the potato in the 16th century and the starchy crop hasn't looked back since. China is now the largest potato-producer worldwide. 5. Cassava Annual Production 2008: 232,950,180 tons Average Yields 2008: 12.5 tons/hectare The rundown: Cassava's importance in Africa and South America can not be overstated. As a drought-resistant crop that does well in poor soils, cassava is a starch-heavy lifesaver for low-income areas. Cassava eaters know that theroots and leaves must be cooked in order to lose that toxic level of cyanogenicglucosides. 6.Soybeans 7.Sweet Potatoes 8.Sorghum 9.Yams 10.Plantains ............................. ))
You have to state the five pillars for me to tell you which one is the most difficult.
The 10 most difficult mountains to climb is pretty subjective based on what you are defining as "difficult". Technical climbing skills required? Most likely to get you killed …by an avalanche? Most likely to get you killed by altitude? Requires the most planning and expedition resources? Subject to the most in-climate weather? Also techniques come into play, is oxygen allowed? Pneumatic drills? Let's go purest and assume no for both. Based on trying to mix it up a little and look for difficulty that encompasses as many of these factors as possible, I would venture my top 10 as: 1. K2 - immensely challenging in every way. High, savage weather, technical, remote. A beast. 2. Gasherbrum IV - Very similar to K2. Slightly lower, but slightly steeper. 3. Nanga Parbat - North face has the highest relief of any face on earth. Treacherous avalanches have earned it the name "Killer Mountain" 4. Great Trango Tower - Tallest near vertical wall on earth...and it's at 20,000 feet with little or no snow to melt for the tremendous water required at that altitude. All the difficulties of the Patagonian towers at high altitude. 5. Baintha Brakk - "The Ogre" Extremely steep, technical mountain in the Karakorum. The best mountaineers in the world consistently mention it as one of the worlds hardest, that's enough for me. To make it worse, apparently it's covered in hungry bears that cause all kinds of trouble at camp. No, that's not a joke. 6. Latok I - The "Ogre's Brother". Close in proximity and difficulty to Baintha Brakk. It's North Ridge is a notorious unclimbed route. Many of the best have tried, all have failed. The closest was still nearly an El Capitan and a half from the summit. 7. Makalu - Considered one of the hardest and most dangerous of the 8000m giants. 8. Everest - Enough with obscurity, being the worlds tallest has to mean something...It means that especially without oxygen, altitude is a tremendous challenge and Everest has more of it than anywhere else. 9. Annapurna - When you kill fully 40% of the summit attempters I guess you have to make the list. Far from the most technical, but it still has the highest mortality rate among 8000m peaks. Maybe it's the extreme avalanche danger, maybe it's just cursed. 10. Cerro Torre - Had to have 1 mountain not in Asia. Immense, remote, awe-inspiring granite spire in Patagonia. Once considered by some mountaineers the hardest mountain in the world. Low altitude, but extremely technical and subject to horrific weather. Worth honorable mention: Mt. McKinnley (Denali) - Probably most dangerous and challenging mountain in North America. In sheer size, one of the largest mountains in the world. Its extreme latitude makes air thinner than altitude would suggest, and subject to terrible weather all year. Chacraraju - The most difficult peak in Andes. Monte Fitzroy - Near Cerro Torre. Extremely technical and remote. One of the most breathtaking mountains to look at in the world. Is found near El Chaltén in the Argentinian Patagonia. Matterhorn - The mountain that really started it all. Still a spectacular peak to behold and one of Europe's greatest climbs.
No but its 3rd hardest in the world, India also is the 5th-6th smartest country in the world.
Most famous is probably the Tour de France, or maybe Giro di Italia. Most difficult might be Paris-Roubaix. Although much shorter, the riding conditions are much more difficul…t. But then there are the endurance races; Paris-Brest-Paris(PBP), or London-Edinburgh-London(LEL). These are every bit as extreme in their own way, if not more.

The difficulty of a language depends on many things. Native speakers of English can learn Spanish with less difficulty than Native Korean speakers, since English is closer to …Spanish than Korean is. On top of that some languages are considered easy to learn to speak, but difficult to learn to write and vice versa. An example would be Mandarin Chinese, from the perspective of Native English speakers it is considered easy to learn to speak, but difficult to read and write.
I read somewhere that it was ranked: 1) English 2) Japanese 3) Russian
the more you take away the bigger it gets a man can make a cigarette out of 3 butts one day he finds 9 butts and smokes all 3 cigarettes how many does he have left? 1 becaus…e each cigarette leaves 1 butt so when he has smoked all 3 cigarettes he can make 1 more.
Yes it's one of the hardest.
Your answer is based on opinion, not facts. By facts the five most powerful nations in the world (based on economy, alliances, military, etc.) 1. America 2. Russia 3. Ch…ina 4. Germany 5. France The British were the ones closest to taking over the world, 2/3 of it. This is incorrect,America is a continent containing many large & prosperous or potentially prosperous countries,and not a Nation.You probably mean the USA,also the UK should be in 4th place,followed by France and then Germany,otherwise your list is OK.
