6. What has to be broken before you use it?

It is not that difficult actually, because perhaps there are some items or things that used to be broken first before it is used. But here, the context is a bit different and should be exact. So, when your friends ask for the real answer, then you can tell them this, because the answer is: 

An egg

7. What room has no door and window?

When your friends are giving up to find the answer. You can point to the mushroom if you have one and say: mush-room.

8. What is a worm that doesn’t wiggle?

For book lovers, perhaps it is an easy question, but sometimes they also don’t expect the answer to be that easy and simple. Most people might think about a kind of worm that does not wiggle literally, although it is such a waste to think like that. Lol. Because the answer is: A bookworm.

9. I was born suddenly, and I can tell the story. I can be lost, but I live forever with you. Can you know what I am?

It is kind of mysterious and your teen friends must be thinking too far. They think something hidden or something tricky.

We are pretty sure your friends will give up on the answer. Then you can whisper this: Memories

10. Which fashion item sounds like the upper part of a mobile war machine? 

For the pun lovers, it might be that easy. But sometimes, when you get this question so suddenly, you cannot think that fast and out of the box. The answer, of course, is pretty silly yet it is the purpose of having riddles especially for teens, right? If your friends already beg for the answer, just tell them this: Tanktop.

11. You can hold it without your hands or your arms. What is it?

It’s pretty easy tho’ yet tricky as well if you think in a rush. For this kind of question, not all people think about things or items but something abstract for sure. If you assume that your friends can answer the question, you can make a judging expression that makes them think more and hold their answer. However the answer is as easy as breathing. And yes, the answer is our breath.

12. The more it dries, the wetter it gets. What is it?

Confusing? Yes, but it is the purpose of playing riddles for teens. Making everyone confused and answering the question frustratingly but the answer is still wrong.

Yes, you use a towel after a shower, right? A towel is something that makes you dry but makes it wet. The more your body dries, the wetter your towel will be. Answer: A towel.

13. This one can go around the world but it will stay in the corner. What is it?

15. What did Adam say the day before Christmas?

A petty yet fun to throw this kind of riddle to your teen squad. Since it is December or even not that season, you still can try this one. For the pun enthusiast, it is a chance for them to get the answer, but if they give up too, you can tell the answer with the exact expression and tone of voice as well because the key of this answer is your tone when telling it. So, let’s say this: It’s Christmas, Eve!

16. Do you know what can make the octopus laugh?

If no one can answer, you can show a photo of Santa and point out his belt then saying: Because he wears a black belt.

18. Which five letter word will be shorter if you add two letters to it?
