So I've noticed the Teapot riddles are rising in popularity and I figured I would give them a try; also, it didn't help that it was recommended by @user474343 for me to do so. Good luck to you all!


The Rules

  • I have one word which has several (2 or more) meanings.
  • Each of the meanings is a teapot (first, second ...)
  • You try to figure out the word with my Hints.

The Puzzle

First:

My first teapot is a unit of measurement.

Second:

My second teapot is to understand.

Is your teapot

FATHOM?

Because

Fathom is a nautical length measurement and it means to understand.

The answer is

Fathom

My first teapot is a unit of measurement.

A fathom is 6 feet?

My second teapot is to understand.

I can't fathom how hard the question is
