Answer to Brain Teaser Question
Put MUSIC and VIOLIN in a sentence relating the two words. Music is played on a violin by someone who knows how to play it; just as furniture is created by carpentry tools by a person who knows how to use them. NOTE: Anyone can draw with a crayon, and a symphony is not played with a piano, but with an orchestra.
