That's easy. The only really true answer is your age. Because, smoke and heat can be trapped and made to go around and around in a room. A person's height can, with age, diminish.

A helium balloon can still have helium in it when it begins to descend. But, a person can never become younger. They may look younger with help from plastic surgery or chemicals. But, their true age can never be taken away.

The correct answer is Age and Time. If time went up then it will never come back. If this year your Age is 17, then next year you will be 18.

Heat and smoke are also accurate answers for what goes up and never comes down.

I think the answer is time because when time is passed it never comes back again.

Age can also be the correct answer but height is not the correct answer because when a person gets older, their height changes.

The correct answer is age because as soon as you are born your not one yet but the next year you will be one you have aged from just being born to being one years old so however said height is wrong because people shrink

when they get older or they just stop growing and become smaller or shorter but all these answers are wright because all of you said age in your answers every person is a smart and inteligent person.

There is a very common riddle on Rain that it comes down but never goes up. But the one that goes up and never comes down can be a person’s age.

Another common answer is a person's height. Heat and smoke are also accurate answers for what goes up and never comes down, due to the fact that heat rises.

It's age that goes up but never comes down.

However, there could be more answers to this same riddle as height and time also lie in the same list. These three things, age, time, and height don't come back once they are gone until and unless we die and come back to starta new life.

That's why it is said about the time, "Time is more valuable than money, you can get more money but you cannot get more time".

The Sun, age and height.

Explanation:

The Sun stays in one spot. It's the Earth that orbits around the Sun and teases your eyes.

You can never get younger. Age is a popular and right answer and there is not a time machine ''yet''. Height is the wrong answer. If you have seen your mom/ dad old, you're taller than them. Try it now.

Your age goes up but never comes down. A person’s age is something that is continually increasing minute after minute, as it can never decrease and make you younger.

• Age is the quantity of days you have lived, expressed in years.
• Age is also the state of being old or the process of becoming older.
• Age is also considered to be one of the periods into which human life is divided.
• We are characterized by physical evolution, equilibrium, and involution.
• For example, your age begins from your first breath as an infant.
• Through childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle life, elderliness, and when you take your last breath in death.
• In simple terms, aging means to grow old.

There are a lot of people who would like to answer this question, but they do not know the answer to this riddle. The answer is “age.” Your age will always rise over the years. They will always say that it is an accomplishment when you reach a certain age. Age will never go down, although some people would always wish that they will get younger.

The only thing that people can do is not look at their age, especially if they would like to look young all the time. Some would use different skincare products so that they can look younger. Some would even undergo some skincare treatments so that they can look youthful for a longer period of time.

This might be an odd answer for some people but in my opinion age is the correct answer.

Your age will rise with the years, but sadly, it will never go down. So, there you have it!

Entropy. Perhaps this is one of the most difficult concepts to understand, with which you can meet in a physics course, at least if we talk about classical physics. Few graduates of physics departments can explain what it is. Most problems with understanding entropy, however, can be removed if one thing is understood. Entropy is qualitatively different from other thermodynamic quantities: such as pressure, volume or internal energy, because it is not a property of the system, but of how we consider this system.

Unfortunately, in the course of thermodynamics, it is usually considered along with other thermodynamic functions, which exacerbates misunderstanding.

The answer is: Time, age, and the sun. Well the answer originally was meant to be age but people thought of different possibilities and that's where we are today but I could be any one of the things.

PS It can't be height because you shrink when you get old and I'm taller than my mum and as tall as my dad

There are actually many possible answers to this, depending on where you are from. For me, I think the only one that goes up but never goes down is age. It is apparent that people age every year, and this goes up every year. The only time when a person’s age will not go up anymore is when a person dies.

It is not possible for a person’s age to go down. There are a lot of people who are scared of aging, probably because they usually associate age with being ugly or not being attractive. Over the years, it has become more established that people can become beautiful at any age.
