Someone asked me a riddle today please help me answer.
Which five letter english word is it?
Where the 1st letter is the last letter.
The last letter is the 1st letter.
The middle letter is the second letter.
The second letter is the fifth letter.
Ah, having written this, I've just noticed StoneyB's comment above. So here is a rehash of StoneyB's answer in case you didn't read the comments: Answer:
Zebra: Z(last letter of the alphabet) E (fifth letter of the alphabet) B (second letter of the alphabet) R A (first letter of the alphabet).
So the first letter of the word is that last letter (in the alphabet), and so forth.
