    It takes 4 men 4 days to build a wall 4m high and 40m long.
    How long would it take 2 men to build the same wall?

    Is this a trick question?

    Twice as long, i.e. 8 days. Unless you need four men minimum to erect a scaffold for a 4m high wall, in which case two men would take forever.

    No time at all. It is already built.

    Clue is the same wall.
