My friend Tom is an odd bird. He's into science, but not into history. He enjoys Wednesdays, but not Saturdays. He likes wrenches, but not pliers. He prefers whistles to bells. And he wants to have a daughter, but not a son. With these clues in mind...

Would Tom hope to receive a ring or a watch? And why?

Here is the SOLUTION.

THE SOLUTION:

Tom would hope for a WATCH.

You see, Tom likes things with silent letters... including science, Wednesdays, wrenches, whistles, a daughter, and... a watch.
