Answer:

The answer is charcoal. It is produced when wood or other organic items are heated in the absence of oxygen. The final product consists mostly of carbon. This charcoal is of black color when it is bought, it turns red when it is burnt and the remaining residue that people mostly throw is of grey color.

5Puzzle 5- Move one cup to get the same order

Question: The image shows 10 glasses being kept in two rows; each row contains five glasses out of which two are empty while the remaining three are filled with water. Even though the glasses are the same in number in each row plus there is the same number of empty and filled glasses, they are not arranged in the similar order as you can see in the below image. You have to move just one cup to get the same order in both the rows. How will you do it?

Answer:

As apparent from the image, there is one water-filled and then one empty glass in the first row, whereas the second row has one empty glass in the beginning as well as in the end while the three glasses between them are filled with water. To make the same order in both the rows, you need to pour the water from the first glass to the fourth glass and then keep the first glass in the end of the first row. This way, both the rows will have a similar order.
