I ask you fellow puzzler to sincerely apprise, and answer me - Yes or No?
Is IV same as LV? I hope not. If you perceive the difference, your first is just fine I would know!

I ask you fellow puzzler to dance, dance on that rhythm of the legend Chris Benoit.
I'd U, as usual, I would have done that. If you do it, I'll know your second is alright.

Now my friend, if I ask you to check if my Jaggery is sweet, you might say no.
It, at sugarcane factory looked yummy. Prove me that your third is alright, ingest it and show.

Well my friend, time for challenging your fourth tool.
Faction of the party says, it's bad. Find if it's an orange or a mango and prove them you are cool!

For testing your fifth, when they ask, if the one which was chosen sat?
I, on asking, will pinch you, once you shout, everyone will know that!

I proudly conclude with amusement, that your five are just fine.
I give you the code 2-16-3-9-16-2-19-1-4-11 to check your sixth with the above line.

Solve the riddle and describe the wordplay tag!

Sight - You must be able to see to tell the difference between IV and LV. Also -- to read that paragraph
Reasoning:
- No? Is IV - Backwards, reads Vision

I ask you fellow puzzler to dance, dance on that rhythm of the legend Chris Benoit.
I'd U, as usual, I would have done that. If you do it, I'll know your second is alright.

Sound - You must be able to hear, to understand the difference between 'U' and 'You' without it being explained. Also, one generally dances to music, or a rhythm.
Reasoning:
- Benoit. I'd U, as - backwards spells Audition, the ability to hear.

Now my friend, if I ask you to check if my Jaggery is sweet, you might say no.
It, at sugarcane factory looked yummy. Prove me that your third is alright, ingest it and show.

Taste - One requires a sense of taste to know if something is sweet or 'yummy'
Reasoning:
- no. It at sugarcane. Backwards, this read, Gustation, the ability to detect taste.

Well my friend, time for challenging your fourth tool.
Faction of the party says, it's bad. Find if it's an orange or a mango and prove them you are cool!

Smell - A more challenging one. To determine if a food is bad, a sense of smell is often used. (E.G. Milk, if not curdled). You can also use your sense of smell to determine if a fruit is an orange or mango, before peeling it.
Reasoning:
- tool Faction of - spells Olfaction, the ability to smell.
Incidentally:
- orange or a mango - Sounds like Aroma

For testing your fifth, when they ask, if the one which was chosen sat?
I, on asking, will pinch you, once you shout, everyone will know that!

Touch - You must have a sense of touch to feel when someone pinches you.
Reasoning:
- chosen sat? I, on - Sensation, the ability to touch (More specifically, somatosensation)

I proudly conclude with amusement, that your five are just fine.
I give you the code 2-16-3-9-16-2-19-1-4-11 to check your sixth with the above line.

Perception - The letters refer to perception taking the letter of the respective number in the line. (Nice job, manshu)

  • $\begingroup$ last line says 'perception'..taking the letter of the respective number in the line...not counting the spaces $\endgroup$ – manshu Jan 9 '17 at 16:26
  • $\begingroup$ That fits with the 6th being my idea of something mental - just couldn't find a related tag. $\endgroup$ – Khale_Kitha Jan 9 '17 at 16:26
  • $\begingroup$ Nice work!! I hope you know what six things you have found. Now go for the last question - Finding the missing tag. :) Its not "pattern" though. $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Jan 9 '17 at 16:30
  • $\begingroup$ Could be "intuition" $\endgroup$ – manshu Jan 9 '17 at 16:32
  • $\begingroup$ @Khale_Kitha Not the answer. There are various word plays involved. Have a look at this one to get the idea. $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Jan 9 '17 at 17:34
