    how do you buy half the eggs at the end, but then they are all gone?
    If you buy half, some are still left...

        you have to end up with no broken eggs, and start out with no broken eggs.. right?
        I know, that probably counts as a hint amd in riddle world hints are bad, so you dont have to answer if its agianst the rules.  smile

      You can sell 1/2 an egg.....if its cooked

      But the the number doesn't matter, no matter how many times you ask for half, you only get half, which always leaves half remaining at the shop.

      If I was able to interpret the writing

      OK, this one is from the same series:

      There are 8 crows sitting in the tree. Hunter No.1 shoots half of them. Then another hunter comes and shoots 1/3 of the remainder.
      How many crows are left in the tree?

      I got one! This is a bit confusing, but there ARE 2 answers!

      You approach two talking doors. One door leads to the City of Truth, while the other door leads to the City of Liars. You do not know which door is which. You are able to ask only one question to determine which door is which. The door that leads to the City of Liars always speaks lies, while the door that leads to the City of Truth always speaks the truth. You want to go to the City of Truth. What question do you ask to determine which door leads to the City of Truth
