Mystery WheelRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
A wheel with ten holes,
No lugs to see;
Numbers with letters,
Mostly with three.
Spin me, spin me,
Again and again;
Though I always return,
You can still reach a friend.
What is being described?
AnswerA rotary telephone.
The dial on a rotary telephone has 10 holes. If this were a wheel on a car, you would fit the holes over the lugs on the hub. Each hole is for a number, 1 through 0. Letters are assigned to most of the numbers. Most of the numbers have three letters assigned. As you dial each number of a telephone number, the dial returns counterclockwise. After completing the dialing, you could reach your friend (or anybody else).
