Riddles!

A few good riddles I found:
(Come on Pike, I know you can get one).

1. Ravi’s father has four sons: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and _______?

.

2. I have one, you have one.
If you remove the first letter, a bit remains.
If you remove the second, bit still remains.
After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains.
It dies hard!
(hint: I have more than just one, and they're not all good).
(No, it's not children, -lol).
.
3. What can bring back the dead; make us cry, make us laugh, make us young; born in an instant yet lasts a life time?
.
Good Luck.

I hate to always go against the grain but... OK I guess I like to go against the grain, so here it goes.

1. Based on the fact that we do not know Ravi's gender, we do not know if he is his dad's son or her dad's daughter. Either one is just an assumption. We can follow the day pattern forward and say Sunday, or follow the day pattern backwards and say Saturday, either way we can not be sure. I'll once again say we have insignificant data to come to a conclusive answer.

2. On this one I was thinking Rabit. It still fits the clues and especially matches our rabit who especially continues to die hard despite my kids continually failing to feed and water her.

3. On this one I agree that a photo fits the clues, so does memory. If you believe in reincarnation, the answer could also be a human.

BTW, do you like the new pic. Niki said my Sasquatch picture did not work for her.

Ravi, Habit and I wasn't sure until I read the other comments so thanks guys for your help. By the way Mike I think you might have been given insufficient data but rabbit always has 2 b's. -- Drew

One thing I love about my blog is the way it brings my family together.
Though I never expected my niece to have to defend her care of her family pet to her father here.
You all got the answers, and had some good additions.
The official answers were:
1. Ravi
2. habit
3. memories
Though rabit would have been an acceptable answer if it were actually spelled with only 1 B.
And photo does match the criteria for #3.
Mike-
I do like the new pic. It fits your family better, though the other one seemed to fit you pretty well.
Jojo-
Yes.
