Riddle: It has branches, but no fruit or leaves, It defends against the thugs and thieves. What is it?

It’s an interesting riddle. The answer can be many. I think this reminds us a lot. Let’s see what could be answer with a few examples.

 

  • Answer can be Military, because military has branches. Army, navy, air force, marines.
  • The police, although in the il we call them stations not branches.
  • The police, although in the il we call them stations not branchesA bank or the police force. This one doesn’t work well as not all banks have branches these days, and neither do all police forces.
  • A bank has branches and defends against thieves.

We do not know for sure the answer. But we think there is one of these possibilities.

The answer is probably a bank.
