    1. The word "incorrectly."

    2. 1:45. The man gave away a total of 25 cents. He divided it between twopeople. Therefore, he gave a quarter to two.

    3. None, the boat rises with the tide. Googly ;-)

    4. White. If all the walls face south, the house is at the North pole, andthe bear, therefore, is a polar bear.

    5. Three. Well, it seems that it could almost be either, but if you followthe mathematical orders of operation, division is performed beforeaddition.So... half of two is one. Then add two, and the answer is three.

    6. Sloppy is a (gold)fish. The wind blew the shutters in, which knockedhis goldfish-bowl off the table, and it broke, killing him.

    7. None. No matter how big a hole is, it's still a hole: the absence of dirt.

    8. Both questions, same answer: the ball in the bucket of 45 degree Fwater hits the bottom of the bucket last. Did you think that the water in the 30degree F bucket is frozen? Think again. The question said nothing aboutthat bucket having anything in it. Therefore, there is no water (or ice) toslow the ball down...

    9. The time and month/date/year American style calendar are 12:34, 5/6/78.

    10. One. If he combines all of his haystacks, they all become one big stack.
