Riddle: Which word in the English language becomes shorter when it is lengthened?
Your logic may not accept that something gets shorter when it is lengthened, especially if it is a word. Because when you add letters to a word, that word will become longer. However, here the situation is different.
Let’s explain, considering that the answer is “short.” If you extend this word by adding two letters, “e and r”, on the end, it becomes “shorter”. Therefore, the five-letter word that is the answer of this riddle is “short”. Now you understand the riddle, don’t you? It’s not always as hard as it looks. The answer of this riddle is short.
