Now in this rhyme, you will find all the elements of a riddle,
All the clues are buried here, somewhere in the middle.
My first is in fact the last naturally to be seen,
I am in part a catalyst for refining gasoline.
My second is in party balloons they float up off the ground,
Although Noble I give your voice a tiny squeaking sound.
Equally noble is my third, I’m said to be mostly inert,
I’m used in incandescent lights so the filament won’t get hurt.
My fourth is known as devilish stuff, of volcanoes I do smell,
Although no-one’s been back to report, I’m supposed to stink like hell!
Finally I am used to make aeroplanes you can trust,
I’m light, I’m strong, I shine like new, I never, ever rust.
Put us all together, and you get what comes before,
Practice makes us perfect, go over it once more.
What am I?
Answer: My first is Rhenium the last naturally occurring element to be discovered; used in Rhenium/Platinum catalysts for gasoline refinement. (Re)
My second is Helium, a noble gas that makes your voice squeak if you inhale it and also fills party balloons (He)
My third is another noble gas Argon used in light bulbs because it won’t chemically combine with the hot filament. (Ar)
My fourth is sulfur (Sulphur) traditionally said to be the smell of hades (S)
Finally a light strong metal used for aeroplanes is Aluminium (Al)
Together: Re He Ar S Al
