WhatsApp Puzzle: What Color Is The Bear?

A man builds a house rectangular in shape.


All the sides have southern exposure.

A big bear walks by.

What color is the bear? and Why?

I found a similar riddle apparently made by Einstein which has the same answer and the same logic, here’s how that goes;

A fellow encountered a bear in a wasteland. There was nobody else there. Both were frightened and ran away. Fellow to the north, bear to the west. Suddenly the fellow stopped, aimed his gun to the south and shot the bear. What color was the bear?

If you don’t know, this may help you: if the bear ran about 3.14 times faster than the fellow (still westwards), the fellow could have shot straight in front of him, however for the booty he would have to go to the south.
