Now if you are a sports fan, this is a bonus for you. So buckle up your seatbelts, and get ready for some amazing riddles!

The first one is based on a ‘polysemy’, which means a word or a phrase having multiple meanings. And I bet you learned a new word.
Racket also means – a loud unpleasant noise.
Example: “the cats were making a racket”
For the second one, you need to think of various species of dogs.
Did you get this one?
The Boxer is a medium to large, short-haired breed of dog. They are mostly found in Germany. And are often termed as intelligent, playful, devoted, and friendly.

For the next one, you gotta take off your hats and do some thinking.
Pretty easy right?
Do you know? Sohail Abbas, a former captain of the Pakistan hockey team, is the highest goal scorer in international field hockey with 348 international goals. Amazing. Isn’t it?
The next one is logical and tricky.

Tell me honestly, at first, you thought ‘First Position’ right?
That’s a common mistake.

Harvard and Yale competed in the first rowing race in 1858. The race was originally held on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, but it has since moved to the Thames River, near New London, CT.
Think back to the Easter days, if you want to solve the next one!
