Riddles I Did Not Solve

I collect these from the net for my grand-daughters, grand-nephews/nieces and my neighbor’s kids.

Trust you fare better with these:

Answers:

B.

The 1st letter of April is A, applying the same rule you get B, then C and so the next date in the sequence is the 1st December!
