A person enters a pet shop and sees a beautiful parrot. The seller guarantees him that the bird repeats everything it hears, so the person buys it. However, when he goes back home and tests the bird, it turns out that it doesn't say a word. The buyer goes to the shop to complain to the seller, but the seller argues he has not lied. How is this possible?

A woman shoots her husband, then holds him under water for five minutes, then hangs him, and finally they enjoy a romantic dinner together. How is this possible?

Two friends made a bet whose horse is slower. After wondering for days what is the fastest and fairest way to figure out who wins the bet, they finally decided to ask a famous wise hermit for help. Upon giving them his advice, the two friends jumped on the horses and started racing back to the city as fast as they could. What did the hermit say?
 
The tank one was tricky, can water flow upwards like that?
I could see it was F but I thought.. Would water flow upwards from a tap filling up the first tank?
If that makes sense haha
 
I always liked this one... I got the answer correct when I went on an overnight school trip when I was 10, was dead proud of myself :risas3::

What can go up a chimney down, but not down a chimney up?

No so much as "flow up" more in the case of gravity forcing those lower tanks to push the water up.
Plus on close inspection people should have noticed that some of the pipes between the tanks were actually blanked off.
So your thought plan was right :)
