    The answer is: a dice. An explanation: "It's always 1 to 6": the numbers on the faces of the dice, "it's always 15 to 20": the sum of the exposed faces when the dice comes to rest after being thrown, "it's always 5": the number of exposed faces when the dice is at rest, "but it's never 21": the sum of the exposed faces is never 21 when the dice is at rest, "unless it's flying": the sum of all exposed faces when the dice is flying is 21 (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6)..

    The answer is : A DICE ,
    no.of faces is 6,the sum of the exposed faces when the DICE comes to idle after being thrown, it's same but never 21 because the sum of the exposed faces is never 21 thus the idle stage, unless it's flying on the time (sum of 1,2,3,4,5,6=21).

    Answer: Dice

    Explanation
    ------------
    1. Dice Has Six Faces.

    2. Each Faces Have Different Number Of Points from 1 to 6.
    So, It is always 1 to 6.

    3. Whenever Dice Is Kept On The Floor, Only Five Faces Are Visible. If We Add The Visible Faces, then the answer will be between 15 to 20.
    So, It Is Always 15 To 20.

    4. When Dice Is In The Fly, All The Faces Comes Into Counting, Then Sum Of All Faces Will Be 21.
    So, Its 21 When In Flying.

    So, It Is A Dice.

    An old farmer died and left 17 cows to his three sons. In his will, the farmer stated that his oldest son should get 1/2, his middle son should get 1/3, and his youngest son should get 1/9 of all the cows. The sons, who did not want to end up with half cows, sat for days trying to figure out how many cows each of them should get. One day, their neighbour came by to see how they were doing after their father's death. The three sons told him their problem. After thinking for a while, the neighbour said: "I'll be right back!" He went away, and when he came back, the three sons could divide the cows according to their father's will, and in such a way that each of them got a whole number of cows. What was the neighbour's solution?

How can you find out in one weighing, which bag contains the marbles of 9 grams?

    A boy leaves home in the morning to go to school. At the moment he leaves the house he looks at the clock in the mirror. The clock has no number indication and for this reason the boy makes a mistake in interpreting the time (mirror-image). Just assuming the clock must be out of order, the boy cycles to school, where he arrives after twenty minutes. At that moment the clock at school shows a time that is two and a half hours later than the time that the boy saw on the clock at home. At what time did he reach school?

    A long, long time ago, two Egyptian camel drivers were fighting for the hand of the daughter of the sheik of Abbudzjabbu. The sheik, who liked neither of these men to become the future husband of his daughter, came up with a clever plan: a race would determine who of the two men would be allowed to marry his daughter. And so the sheik organized a camel race. Both camel drivers had to travel from Cairo to Abbudzjabbu, and the one whose camel would arrive last in Abbudzjabbu, would be allowed to marry the sheik's daughter. The two camel drivers, realizing that this could become a rather lengthy expedition, finally decided to consult the Wise Man of their village. Arrived there, they explained him the situation, upon which the Wise Man raised his cane and spoke four wise words. Relieved, the two camel drivers left his tent: they were ready for the contest! Which 4 wise words did the Wise Man speak?
