    If someone says a riddle, and after you trying for some time to find the answer, you want to tell them "OK,I failed". Is there an expression for that?

    Thank you

    There are many possible answers, emanko and we're not supposed to provide lists.

    Your suggestion is fine.

    Thank you.

    I didn't ask for a list. I asked for "an" expression.
