What are the Things?

In one day, 6 things.
In one week, 4 things.
In one month, 2 things.
In one year, 1 thing.

What are the things?

Odd numbers.

In a day, there are 6 odd hours: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 (ignoring 24-hour time).

In a week, there are 4 odd-numbered days: 1, 3, 5, 7

In a month, there are 2 odd weeks: 1, 3 (no month has 5 full weeks)

And in a year’s 12 months, there is 1 odd number: 1 (the 1 of 12).

I readily agree the year one is a stretch, but I didn’t write it :)

It’s odd numbers
6 ODD hours in one day (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 – on a 12 hour clock)
4 ODD days in one week (1, 3, 5, 7)
2 ODD weeks in one month (1, 3 – no month has a full 5 weeks)
1 ODD number in one year (either 1 for one year or a year is 12 months so the 1 in 12 is odd)

This makes absolutely no sense!! And to know that you took the time to share it and actually leave a smiley face along with it amazes me. Stupid is as stupid does! PLEASE, web admins, do not allow this person to share or post a riddle again!! Thank you.

Love,

A person who still thinks your sill for sharing this…do you math bro?

Don’t worry, we still love you.

This one is easy. The number of waffles left in a box of Eggo’s I bought in January. Started with 6, within a week I had 4 left, a month later I was down to 2, and by the time I dug them out of the back of the freezer in December (trying to make room for the Christmas leftovers don’t you know) I still had one left. How did no one get this.
