Perhaps, but I do know the definition of a riddle:

rid∑dle/ˈridl/ Noun: A question intentionally phrased to require ingenuity in ascertaining its answer.

No ingenuity required for the jack in the box, just the ability to translate mass and gravity into a mathematical equation. That's a problem set. The light switch question was a riddle.
