It seems to me that "solved the puzzle" is best for a sort of puzzle which you may not have encountered before, and which has a single solution, while "finished the puzzle" is best for crossword puzzles and jigsaw puzzles, which can be thought of as a series of little puzzles which must be solved to finish the whole thing.Hello, everyone:
I have one more question.
I learned that I should say "solve riddles."
Now I am wondering if I may also say "solve puzzles" or with other verbs.
Thanks for your help!
