Coral can be much bigger than a cannonball, though - you get whole reefs of the stuff. And it's not alive, 'cause it's crushed animal bones and stuff.

I can't think of anything that's alive and yet doesn't do all this stuff that living things do - that sort of stuff is required to fit the definition of "alive" after all ;). Unless it's a picture of someone alive, or a film or something, in which case they'd appear to be moving, eating drinking, etc, but as it was just pixels on a screen it wasn't really real? But then, riddles don't tend to involve tech stuff but are more generic so that's probably not it. Plus a cinema screen is a bit bigger than a cannonball, as are most TV screens so that can't be it either, lol.

A person is trapped in a room with no windows, no doors or trapdoors, no skylights whatsoever. The only thing in the room is a table.

How does the person escape...?

Ok. also. also. also, tae, as well (to quote the Big Yin).

He stands up on the table and jumps over the wall? You never said there wasn't a ceiling.
