Riddle: I come from a mine and get surrounded by wood always. Everyone uses me. What am I?
This riddle is not too tricky… Or maybe it is! Let’s first think about all things that come from a mine. Well, obviously not all things but the things that come to your mind first. Such as coal, right? What is produced from coal? It could be a diamond. But not everyone uses diamond. It’s pretty expensive for everyday people like us.
One other thing that is extracted from mines and more affordable is probably lead. The lead is used in the pencils. And the structure of a pencil consists of a lead inside and a block of wood around it. So that your hands don’t get dirty. Pretty useful! Therefore, the answer is a pencil.
Answer: Pencil lead (and the pencil)
