What is something that speaks without a mouth, hears without ears, has no body, and comes alive with wind?
A) A ghost.
B) A dream.
C) An idea.
D) An echo.
Answer: D) An echo.
Explanation: This is a riddle that describes an echo, which is the reflection of sound waves off a surface. An echo “speaks” without a mouth and “hears” without ears, as it is created by the sound waves bouncing off a surface and returning to the listener’s ears. An echo also does not have a physical body, and can only be heard when there is wind or air movement to carry the sound waves back to the listener.
Option A) is incorrect because while a ghost may be associated with supernatural phenomena and may not have a physical body, it does not fit the description of something that speaks or hears without the need for a mouth or ears. Option B) is also incorrect because while dreams may be intangible and immaterial, they are not associated with sound or wind. Option C) is incorrect because while ideas may be communicated without the need for physical speech or hearing, they are not associated with sound or wind.
Therefore, the correct answer is option D) An echo, as it best fits the description of something that can “speak” and “hear” without a mouth or ears, has no physical body, and is associated with wind or air movement.
