Riddle Time!



See if you have the knowledge to figure this out:

It is presumed I began in India, though it is uncertain.
I may be small, but I have a big taste.
I am used in many ways: As a food, as a battery and cleaning to name a few.

What am I?

It is in fact a lemon!

Let's see how you all do with this one:


My kind comes in several sizes and designs, but I am always round.

The size of me determines how or where I am used

You can find one of my kind that's heavy or lighter, but I have a limit as to how light or heavy I can be.

The place one specific type of my kind are used usually have many of me to chose from, but you may use your own.

My hystory goes WAY back to 5200 B.C.

Although most ceramic pots are round, this isn't the answer. Nice try though!

My kind comes in several sizes and designs, but I am always round.

The size of me determines how or where I am used

You can find one of my kind that's heavy or lighter, but I have a limit as to how light or heavy I can be.

The place one specific type of my kind are used usually have many of me to chose from, but you may use your own.

My hystory goes WAY back to 5200 B.C.


Another clue:

I can have from zero to five holes in me, depending on my type or use.

I figured I'd give an extra day to see if that ONE little hint of a clue would help. I see no takers, so I'll add two more to the bottom of the list:

My kind comes in several sizes and designs, but I am always round.

The size of me determines how or where I am used

You can find one of my kind that's heavy or lighter, but I have a limit as to how light or heavy I can be.

The place one specific type of my kind are used usually have many of me to chose from, but you may use your own.

My history goes WAY back to 5200 B.C.

I can have from zero to five holes in me, depending on my type or use.

Depending on my use, I can weigh from a couple of pounds up to 16 pounds.

The words "candle", "five" or "ten" (along with another word I shall refrain from mentioning which would give me away instantly) are used in front of my name to describe how or where I am used.

Nope.
I have honestly never seen (or heard) about "candle tires" or "candle wheels".
**heads to Google to look it up**

I shall add another clue, I hope it helps:


My kind comes in several sizes and designs, but I am always round.

The size of me determines how or where I am used

You can find one of my kind that's heavy or lighter, but I have a limit as to how light or heavy I can be.

The place one specific type of my kind are used usually have many of me to chose from, but you may use your own.

My history goes WAY back to 5200 B.C.

I can have from zero to five holes in me, depending on my type or use.

Depending on my use, I can weigh from a couple of pounds up to 16 pounds.

The words "candle", "five" or "ten" (along with another word I shall refrain from mentioning which would give me away instantly) are used in front of my name to describe how or where I am used.

It has been known since before the 1960s that a "full-roller" use of me does not hook as well as "3/4 rollers" in certain instances.

Nice jest there, with the "I'm not sure" attitude, but having the correct answer!
Well done!

:aarock:


Give this one a try:


You look at my kind every day.
You recognise most of us, but some of us are not familiar at times.
We come in many sizes and shapes; Most you recognise instantly, but not all of them.
Sometimes we make sense as we are, and other times more of us need to be together.
There are various forms of us in many different areas, some only fit in our areas, and others fit elsewhere.
There are a few people who actually have no clue what we are and need to be educated about us.



What are we?

I see many reading, not many guessing. It's not going to bite you! It's only a riddle!
One I shall add a couple more clues to:


You look at my kind every day.
You recognize most of us, but some of us are not familiar at times.
We come in many sizes and shapes; Most you recognize instantly, but not all of them.
Sometimes we make sense as we are, and other times more of us need to be together.
There are various forms of us in many different areas, some only fit in our areas, and others fit elsewhere.
There are a few people who actually have no clue what we are and need to be educated about us.
Some of us are long, a few of us are short, but we come from the same soup.
You can see us, hear us, use us; It don't matter where you are in most of these cases.

(Although I was looking for the word in English, this answer given IS correct.)

The answer is "Words".

What about this one, huh? Can you figure THIS out:

I can be found in a bank, possessed by a guard or even the manager.
I can be found on the music sheets for an orchestra or band.
I can be found sitting right in front of you right now.
I can be found on a map of Florida.
I can be found in your pocket or purse.
(As you can see, I have many forms, but they are NOT the same as each other, just carry the same name!)


What am I?

Keys it is!
Let's see how you do with this one:

I seem to be perfectly still, yet I am indeed moving quite fast.
I am above you, below you, in front of you and behind you as well as to your left and right.
You would not be alive without me. However you could survive without me, but not for long, even if you took along aid.
My shape was in question for many years, but now everyone knows the truth.


What am I?

Good old planet Earth! (Still looks flat from where I sit, but oh well!)
:dshades:

Give this a shot:

"It is quite dark tonight, but this won't stop me!"
"I must hurry before it's too late!"
"It's a rather warm night for April!"
"I can't believe it was two! It could easily have been one!"
"Everyone awake! Awake I say! Your attention is needed in an emergency!"
"I am so glad there are others doing this, too, should I not make it all the way!"
"This is much more exciting than pulling another's tooth!"


Now who could have been able to say all these things?

No takers yet, huh? Ok I'll add another pair of clues:

"It is quite dark tonight, but this won't stop me!"
"I must hurry before it's too late!"
"It's a rather warm night for April!"
"I can't believe it was two! It could easily have been one!"
"Everyone awake! Awake I say! Your attention is needed in an emergency!"
"I am so glad there are others doing this, too, should I not make it all the way!"
"This is much more exciting than pulling another's tooth!"
"I love my horse, it's so reliable!"
"I was born in 1734."


Now who could have been able to say all these things?
