An egg.

First you take the roman number twelve, which looks like this: XII

Then you slice it in two horizontally, and the upper half of it looks like this: VII... The roman number for seven!

Correct! You're up!

Ok, new riddle, this should be an easy one:

What is so fragile that if you mention its name, you break it?

It has no top or bottom
but it can hold flesh, bones and blood all at the same time.

A ring or bracelet? Both would seem to fit the bill... (but not sure about the top or bottom bit...more of an inside/outside thing)

Ok, how many blocks (2' x 2') would it take to complete a building, if it's 40' long on all four sides, and 20' tall, and the walls are four feet thick?

that would be 20 per side, and 2 blocks thick...

So
Outer wall
20 + 20 + 18 + 18 = 76

Inner wall
18 + 18 + 16 + 16 = 68

76 + 68 = 144 blocks around the building.

You didn't mention how tall a block is so I am assuming either it's 20 feet tall or 2 feet tall.

If the blocks are 2 feet tall, then 144 x 10 = 1440 blocks.

Correct?

Nope.

Hint...REALLY read the exact question...there's a key word there...

ok this might sound weird....zero blocks cuz it's already built?

That's what I thought myself. What threw me off is the way the question is phrased.

Closer...

How many blocks does it take to COMPLETE it?

Oh I get it. ONE block.

how many blocks (2' x 2') would *it* take to complete a building

Yep, laying the last block (one) is what "completes" it...

You're up!

A ring?

If so that's ridiculously easy... if not, then nice one
