Riddle: What can you catch but you can’t throw it? A hint: it’s not easy…
You can catch and throw a ball or a frisbee. But you can’t “throw” a sickness. We mostly use the verb “to catch” when we talk about an illness such as cold or the flu. However, instead of throwing them away, we come around, pull through, or shake of a disease.
Therefore, the answer to that riddle is “a cold” which is something that you catch and recover from. That’s pretty easy for every human being on earth to understand since we probably all have experienced a cold sometime in our lives.
Answer: A cold.
