Riddle: A black dog stands in the middle of an intersection in a town painted black. None of the street lights are working due to a power failure caused by a storm. A car with two broken headlights drives towards the dog but turns in time to avoid hitting him. How could the driver have seen the dog in time?
This riddle aims to confuse you and make it harder for you to find the answer. The fact that the town is painted in black and the dog is black brings darkness to our minds. Apart from that the riddle also adds that none of the streetlights are working to make you surer that it is at night when it is dark.
Finally, it adds that the car’s headlights are broken, and it is about to hit the dog, again we think it is dark because the riddle keeps mentioning the broken lights. However, this does not happen at night.
The answer of this riddle is ‘Who said this happened during the night?’.
