Riddles from April 28th Newsletter

Q1. I am a word that begins with the letter I. If you add the letter A to me, I become a new word with a different meaning, but that sounds exactly the same. What word am I? 

Q2. A man is washing windows on the 25th floor of an apartment building. Suddenly, he slips and falls. He has nothing to cushion his fall, and no safety equipment—but he doesn’t get hurt. How is this possible? 

Q3. I have a neck, but no head, and I wear a cap. What am I?
 
Q4. When you want to use me, you throw me away. When you’re done using me, you bring me in. What am I?
 
Q5. There is a house with four walls. All of the walls are facing south. A bear is circling the house. What color is the bear?
 
Q6. Name the next letter in this sequence: J F M A M J J A S O N ?
 
 
 
 
 
 
A1. Isle (add A to make “Aisle”)

A.2 He’s washing windows inside the building. 

A3. A bottle!
 
A4. An anchor.
 
A5. White. If all walls of the house are facing south, the house must be on the North Pole, so the bear is a polar bear.
 
A6.  The sequence contains the first letter of every month, in order.
