Einstein wrote this riddle early during the 19th century. He said 98% of the world could not solve it. Its not hard, you just need to pay attention and be patient.

The answer:
Einstein didn't live during the early 19th century.
The riddle is therefore rendered null and void.

Ooooh, that's what it is. That did seem a little weird...

Anyone else got anymore?

Also, the word German kept popping into my mind.

Early 19th century- 1800-1850.


Pandahat is ONLY HAT.
Is it really worth it to me to explain how you are wrong and an idiot?

..meh I'll let someone else do it.

it depends 19th can be 1800's or 1900's its your choice.

No it isn't. 19th century refers to the 1800's. The 1900's is the 20th century.

Early 19th century=1800-1850.
Early 1900's=1900-1950.


I see six pets o_O

Dogs, danes, horses, cats, birds, and fish.

But it rather confused me when it said the danes drink tea...

Maybe the danes would count as dogs and the owners are the ones that drink tea?

I think it means Danish...


Rocket to your face.
took me forever but the German

am I right?

If you want I think I can write up an explanation for how I reached it.

I actually remember these types of problems from about 4th or 5th grade. It was like an ABC, crosshatch grid, or some other method.
