    I now it is quite an old post to which I am responding but felt like doing so as few users here had said that Chicken didn’t seem the right answer. The thing is, the outer cover, i.e., the skin, of chicken is first removed and thrown away and then the flesh is cooked. Then, we eat that cooked flesh but throw away the bones which are inside that flesh; we don’t eat bones. That is why chicken IS the right answer.

    i think ‘maize'(corn) can also be one more answer for 3rd one..all are very interesting questions..

      Maize is even a better answer of even the answer Fathima. Some people eat the inside of a chicken

    When you read the solution, all of a sudden they appear so easy, and you wonder why one cannot guess, except for the last one probably.

    Dear SARA.

    Wonderful. But please don’t give the answers right away! Takes away the fun!

    AND, why don’t you organise competitions amongst your viewers????!!!

    That wold be great fun, indeed!

    • AL~HASH. November 18, 2013 at 11:48 AM #

      Mr. Zafar Iqbal

      Nowadays nobody have that much of time to participate in such kind of competitions, and no one will wait for the answers, whenever they have sufficient time they ll open and see or else just they leave.

      So this is the right way only what Sara doing, as giving the spontaneous answers,

      Regards

    I got the 3 answers. But I have 1 more answer for your 3rd puzzle which I got but you put other answer ย 

    CoffinDarkness———— Bhutta (Corn)———————-OnionYou throw away the outside and cook the inside. Then you eat the outside and throw away the inside. What did you eat?ย You answered chicken while I answered – “Corn (bhutta in hindi) ” and my answer is more suitable than yours because we through the inside part of chicken before cooking ……..but for corn we eat it first then throws the inside part.ย
