#1 A Man in an Elevator
A man who lives on the tenth floor takes the elevator down to the first floor every morning and goes to work. In the evening, when he comes back; on a rainy day, or if there are other people in the elevator, he goes to his floor directly. Otherwise, he goes to the seventh floor and walks up three flights of stairs to his apartment.
Can you explain why?

#2 the ball
How can you throw a ball as hard as you can and have it come back to you, even if it doesn't bounce off anything? There is nothing attached to it, and no one else catches or throws it back to you.

#3 the magnet
You are in a room with no metal objects except for two iron rods. Only one of them is a magnet.
How can you identify which one is a magnet?

#4 Sheikh's Inheritance
An Arab sheikh tells his two sons to race their camels to a distant city to see who will inherit his fortune. The one whose camel is slower wins. After wandering aimlessly for days, the brothers ask a wise man for guidance. Upon receiving the advice, they jump on the camels and race to the city as fast as they can.
What did the wise man say to them?

#4 The wise man tells (both) the brother(s) that the other brother has already won

and #3 make a compass out of each one and see which one turns towards north

#1 A Man in an Elevator

He is unable to reach higher than the 7th floor button. On a rainy day, he uses his umbrella to reach the top. If there is other people, he asks one of them to push it.

#2 the ball

Throw the ball up.

For question #3, you could also touch the end of rod #1 to the midpoint of rod #2 to determine which rod is magnetic.

Magnetic fields are strongest at the ends of a magnetized iron rod and weakest in the middle. Therefore, if rod #1 is magnetic, it will strongly attract rod #2 if touched to the middle of rod #2. But if rod #2 is magnetic, it will barely attract rod #1 if any part of rod #1 is touched to the middle of rod #2.

Hope that makes sense the way I just explained it. :)
