In Ancient Greek Mythology, A sphinx guarded a road. It let no food or water into the town. He said a riddle: WHOEVER CAN ANSWER THIS WILL BECOME KING! AND I WILL LEAVE YOUR TOWN! Many were puzzled, until a man came along and asked what the riddle was. The sphinx said: WHAT WALKS ON FOUR LEGS IN THE MORNING, TWO LEGS IN THE MID DAY, AND THREE LEGS AT EVENING? The brave man chuckled and said: That's and easy one, its man. Four legs as a baby, two legs as adult, and two legs with a cane at old age. The sphinx let out a huge roar, and ran to the next town. The man became king of the town and the Sphinx never returned. I hope this was helpful!
