Question 4 clue #2

The poison was REALLY cold.
Both drinks contained poisoned ice cubes. The man who died drank his drink slower, allowing the ice cubes to melt and release the posion into the drink.

5. Romeo and Juliet were dead in the middle of the room. All that surrounded them was a pool of water and some broken glass. How did they die?

You might have heard this one before....

6.Is it more correct to say

"The herd of sheep is eating hay in the field"

or

"The herd of sheep are eating hay in the field"?

Neither are correct. It's a 'flock' of sheep, its a 'herd' of cows.

7. Three switches outside a windowless room are connected to three lightbulbs inside the room. How can you determine which switch is connected to which bulb if you are only allowed to enter the room once?

Turn one switch one, leave it on for a while then turn it off. Turn on the second switch then enter the room.

If the bulb is on then the second switch is connected to the bulb. If the bulb is off but warm then the first switch is connected to the bulb. Otherwise the third switch is connected.

8. There is a powercut. A man opens a door in his house and drowns. How is this?

That's not the answer I'm looking for, and the question doesn't actually say he walks anywhere. But I think it's a good answer, so I'll give you half a point for that.
