Tuesday’s Twister #6 – Number Riddles

Riddles have always been one of my favorite types of puzzles.  Riddles are easily said and understood, but solving them is another issue.  Riddles come in all shapes and sizes.  There are true riddles, rhyming riddles, associative riddles, metaphoric riddles and joke riddles just to name a few.

Today’s twister is a series of riddles, all with a number theme.  Three of the following riddles are original and one is borrowed.  In either case I think that the following selection of four riddles will challenge everyone that gives them a try.  Remember, stick with it – the fun of riddles is figuring them out, not having them answered for you!

 

1.
What occurs twice in a week but never in a day?

 

2.
I’m closest number to the number 9
But not when looking at a number line
As a smile it to a frown
You need only turn me upside down


What number am I?

 

3.

Either Add 1 to me
or Subtract 1 from me
and a palindrome you’ll see

What number am I?

 

4.

What number is twice the number of letters in it?
