Temperature is the correct answer

These riddles are far too open ended with multiple correct answers.
This site has some good riddles, but definitely needs to work on the majority of its collection.

I agree, this one could use some work to have just one answer. Temperature doesn’t work, since it moves up and down on thermometers. Suggestions are always welcome.

It can not be temperature…and how in the hell would it be rain? You guys are missing the keyword. At the same time….

If you want to technical about it a stair case doesn’t go up and down there are steps that are aligned so the person or object can go up and down so temperature could be one because a thermostat only measures temperature it is not the actual thing soooooooooooooo stair case and temperature

Keekee kyrie says

Brain it does not say at the same time and a stair case doesn’t go up and down at the same time you either go up at once or go down at once but I’m sure the question is not ment to be so technical nor serious so um yeah

Is the answer temperature? I feel like it is, but it moves up and down in a thermometer. is it stairs? but that doesn’t go up or down. People go up and down on it, but it doesn’t go up or down. could it be weight?

Scarlet says

maybe its something that goes up and down vertically like a pole or something like that.

I think the obvious answer is the Sun. It doesn’t move. We move around it. It goes up in the morning and it goes down at night but since We revolve around it. It is stationary.
The Sun. Technically the temperature does move. In order for it to go up the heat has to increase and in order to measure temperature you have to use a tool which shows the temperature moved up. Vice versa.

I say temperature. Those of you saying the sun, I disagree after getting technical with it. The sun rotates, therefore it moves. Temperature doesn’t move, it’s just represented by the material (which used to be mercury, idk what it is now) in a thermometer that goes up and down, but the actual temperature doesn’t move.
