Mental Exercises

Mental exercise is the act of performing a mentally stimulating task that is considered beneficial to one's mental status. Studies suggest that mental exercise, like reading and doing a puzzle, may delay the onset of Alzheimer disease.
A brain teaser is a form of puzzle that requires thought to solve. It often requires thinking in unconventional ways with given constraints in mind; sometimes it also involves lateral thinking. Logic puzzles and riddles are specific types of brain teasers.
Induction Puzzles are logic puzzles which are solved via the application of the principle of induction. In most cases, the puzzle's scenario will involve several participants with reasoning capability (typically people) and the solution to the puzzle will be based on identifying what would happen in an obvious case, and then repeating the reasoning that: "as soon as one of the participants realises that the obvious case has not happened, they can eliminate it from their reasoning, so creating a new obvious case".
Typical tell-tale features of these puzzles include any puzzle in which each participant has a given piece of information about all other participants but not themselves. Also, usually some kind of hint is given to suggest that the participants can trust each other's intelligence. (Wikipedia)

Logical paradoxes or fallacies

Can 2=1 ?

If A=B
Multiply by A on both sides, you get A²=AB.
Subtract B² from both sides, you get A²-B²=AB-B².
Factor both sides, you get (A+B)(A-B)=B(A-B).
Divide by (A-B) on both sides, you get A+B=B.
Because A=B, therefore B+B=B,
If 2B=B, then 2=1.
