|←||087 - Ferris Wheel Riddle||088 - In a Hole||089 - Which Way?||→|
A tennis ball has rolled its way down into a hole. This particular hole is extremely deep and has a sharp bend in the middle, making the ball impossible to retrieve by hand. To make matters worse, the ground around the hole is made of hard clay, so digging the ball out isn't an option.
However, you have something incredibly commonplace on hand that you can use to get the ball out. What do you use to get the ball out? Answer in five letters.
If you can't reach in and grab the ball, you're going to have to get the ball to come to you.
Theoretically, you could use any liquid in which tennis balls can float, but water is the liquid you would most likely have handy.
Since the ground is hard clay, there's little chance of the water getting absorbed into the surrounding earth.
The ball should come up with little difficulty.
