What's the answer for this question:
You have 6 burning candles, and blow out two of them. How many candles are left standing after 24 hours? How do you know?
If weather is clear, the candles are of normal size and all in standing position
then answer is:
2 as others will burn out
I am going to assume conditions are perfect, and that the wax on the candles lasts more than twenty-four hours.
The question asks for the number of candles standing, so:
All six will be standing, but two will be blown out (but the amount blown out is beside the point).
