Some Puzzles For You
I. I always go in front of a rat; but if you have a car, look for me at the back; an ostrich has me in its middle, but an emu never has me at all; I'm the centre of the world and the end of a star; I can always be seen in York, but I don't live in London; I go before royalty, and after a peer; and if you eat a herring for breakfast, you will find two of me in it; a robber will always find me behind him and in front of him too. What am I?
2. One half of me I see you spread With eagerness upon your bread; The other half of me you'll see Is laid for everyone at tea; My whole's a flower of brightest gold, Beloved by all, both young and old.

Find the two halves and the whole.
3. I am in every dog you see, I grow on every wayside tree, I frighten cats and burglars too, Tell me what I am now, do!
