A man lives on the 19th floor. When he goes up in the elevator he only goes to level 10 and walks the rest of the way but when he goes down he can take the elevator all the way down. Why?

 

He’s too small to reach the 19th floor button.

 

A man lived in a circle house. His wife died and there were three suspects. They were the butler, the cook and the maid. The butler was greeting the guests, the cook was cooking and the maid was cleaning the corners.  Who was lying? Who did it?
