• I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because in the intended 'solution', there is no question to answer, no puzzle to solve. – Deusovi Dec 22 '15 at 7:45
• @Deusovi there a solution, But I won't write it here. – Shaleen Jain Dec 22 '15 at 8:40
• Agreed to close. Once the puzzle has been solved, there's no specific way to answer. – Carl Dec 23 '15 at 3:18
• I think the title should be interpreted in a way that will give a unique answer to this question – justhalf Feb 24 '16 at 2:07

Can I say that:

The question is "What is the solution?"
And following the pattern in the clue (each number describes the number of letters in the first word in the phrase), then:

The solution is a phrase made up of 11 letters

(space is not a letter)

This is the solution :

Each number of letter concerns a word of the sentence :
What has 4 letters
yet has 3
Sometimes 9
then 4
Rarely 6
never 5

• I admitted the OP is like me a non english speaker, and sometimes you have to take things not too litteraly so I answered the way he wanted to I guess. – RiddlerNewComer Dec 24 '15 at 13:09
