Both exist in a field. Both are finite. Therefore Raven -> Writing desk and Writing desk -> Raven.

Two answers:

If you know the original quote from Alice in Wonderland in which the Mad Hatter asks this riddle at the tea party scene, the answer is "I have no idea."

Another answer is they both have quills.

There is no answer, the writer made it nonsensical to see what kind of creative answers could be made.

Well, if you take a raven to be a metaphor for a writing desk, then Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" becomes a poem about his desk taunting him during a case of writer's block.

My favourite answer is, "One is a rest for pens, the other is a pest for wrens"

But the correct answer is, "They both produce a few notes, all very flat, and are almost never turned the wrong way front."
