Wow, this one is tricky-see if you can figure it out:
A boy comes upon a man digging a pit.
“Good morning,” he said. “How deep is that pit?”
“Try to Guess”, replied the man. “My height is exactly five feet ten inches.”
“How much deeper are you going?” said the boy.
“I’m going twice as deep,” was the answer, “and then my head will be twice as far below ground as it now above ground.”
