A powerful man hired a construction company to build a huge, impenetrable and tall wall along the border of...

...two cities to separate them. It took 1000 men two years to build the wall.

How long would it take 675 men to build it within the same number of years?

How many years would it take 65,853,516 people of both sexes to convince a powerful man that a wall is a dumb idea?

Sudeep... I can see by the way you responded, you do know the correct answer... well done! Plus, I congratulate you for not disclosing the actual answer. This may keep the others busy trying to find/determine the right answer if they have never heard this quiz before.

@Richard, your quiz made me LOL because I came across this one some days ago but the places were  India and Pakistan, I think. Actually, most of the people answered it wrong and later they got their sense back. From this kind of question, we can imagine that our mind is really lazy to analyze something once again; it only wants the answer or gets to the conclusion :)

I'm sorry. I was preparing my answers to all of your questions when Sudeep came up with the right answer to my riddle.

Yes, before I wrote the second part of the riddle, you got it right with the answer 2 years.


If Sudeep had not given us the right answer, chances were that you might have gotten the right answer as well.

I'm editing it and adding your name to the others that said two years in the first part of the riddle.


Actually, it's a powerful politician from my city who is trying to separate us from a neighboring city :) :) :) :)

Thank you for participating.

Well done Sudeep!

Your answer is absolutely right.

No time at all.

The wall is already built.



I was going to answer your question, but as Sudeep got it, I think it's no use doing it now.

I'll think about a new riddle for tomorrow.

Thank you all for your comments.
