Are you the clever one in your group of friends? Do you know how to solve puzzles, think outside the box, and even do hard math in your head at the speed of light? You’re awesome! But no matter how smart you are or how many books on logic and reasoning you read, some questions can give the most brilliant brains a run for their money!

When it comes to trick questions and riddles, it’s easy to get stumped. That’s because tricky questions don’t just test your knowledge — they examine your ability to think critically and quickly. They require you to make assumptions, be creative, and apply what you know in new ways. In other words, they test your brainpower.

The trick questions below will challenge your mind and your intellect. Some are easy, some are hard, but all of them are fun. If you can answer them all, you might be smarter than Albert Einstein! Get your mind blown by these confusing questions and riddles, or send them to your friends’ group chat to confirm who’s the real smartass among you!
