So, I really liked this riddle, so this is based off this one here.

The first is actually seventy-six

The tenth is actually seventy-five

The sixteenth is actually seventy-eight

The eighteenth is actually seventy-nine

IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!

    $\begingroup$ Is "four-six" (instead of "forty-six") intentional in the title? $\endgroup$ – puzzledPig Mar 28 '18 at 2:43

    $\begingroup$ Are we supposed to solve an actual problem/question, or can we just agree with the riddle that "IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!" :) $\endgroup$ – Riley Mar 28 '18 at 2:44

The pattern is

The Prime Ministers of Canada by age

The first is actually seventy-six

John A. Macdonald lived 76 years

The tenth is actually seventy-five

W. L. Mackenzie King lived 75 years

The sixteenth is actually seventy-eight

Joe Clark is 78 years old.

The eighteenth is actually seventy-nine

Brian Mulroney is 79 years old.

And the title: The twenty-third is four-six

Justin Trudeau is 46 years old.

  • $\begingroup$ Just wondering, how did you get to the conclusion that these are the Prime Ministers of Canada by age? $\endgroup$ – maounkhan Mar 28 '18 at 3:08

    $\begingroup$ The riddle you linked to was about US Presidents, so I figured you might have constructed this riddle around the leaders of a different country. And to say that someone "is 76" means that that's their age. $\endgroup$ – Riley Mar 28 '18 at 3:11
