    what am i ?

    An apple begins with me and age too. I am in the midst of a man and foremost in every apprehension. You will find me in everyday and see me in all Autumns. It's a pity that you cannot see me in the air and yet it's so wonderful to be a part of the great Atlantic ocean! Guess what am I?

    I thought gravity before I read "great Atlantic ocean"

    But

    "An apple begins with me and age too."

    1. water
    2. tree?
    3. death

    "I am in the midst of a man and foremost in every apprehension."

    If only I knew what man...

    "You will find me in everyday "
    1.water
    2.tree
    3.death
    4.life

    "see me in all Autumns."

    1.tree's
    2.leafs

    "It's a pity that you cannot see me in the air"

    1.Water?


    'wonderful to be a part of the great Atlantic ocean"

    1water!


    I am going with water. Am I correct?

    It is "A". Thats correct.

    I dont understand the whole "you cannot see me in the air" because you CAN.

    Perhaps it was meant to say "you CAN see me in the air."
