Hey readers,

 

Here comes a straightforward question.

 

 

"What was your favorite subject in school?"

 

 

Many would say literature. Robert Frost's poems and Shakespearean plays excite many souls. Literature is specifically meant for the observers; people who observe the depth of moments and try to understand life from a different angle.



 

Was your favorite subject Science in school? Science attempts to answer all the "whys" that all the other subjects fail to describe. It not only talks about the beautiful things, concepts, and laws bestowed upon us by the Almighty, rather, it also talks about our great creations by us, the humans.

 

 

Additionally, the subject never stops. It is an ever-evolving subject, and no matter how much you study science, it is never enough.



 

Only a tiny portion of the people would say that their favorite subject back in school was math. However, not many know that this tiny section of people are actually special. Math deals with numbers, and problems of everyday life.  It helps us quantify the world.



If you fall into this small section of special people, here are some fun math riddles with answers for you.
