Simchas torah does require 3 seforim anywhere, no? V'Zos, Maftir, and Bereishis? How is EY different in that regard - an no, I didn't include it in my chesbon.


Which leads me to a few more leining riddles:
- What is the most commonly read haftorah, how many times is it read per year?
- What is the most commonly read torah section, and the max number of times per year it is read?
- What haftorah is read on different days in Golus and in EY (hint, not everyone reads it in EY)?

What is the only haftorah that is read multiple time every single year (by shacharis- to exclude דרשו )?

- What haftorah is read on different days in Golus and in EY (hint, MOST PEOPLE DON'T not everyone reads it in EY)?

FTFY

And another FTFY: Golus and EY aren't mutually exclusive. People in EY are in Golus just like people outside EY, if not more so.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

רני ושמחי בת ציון on Shabbos Chanuka even on ראש חודש and on בהעלותך. But IINM there are more.

Would it have made you happier if I said Chutz La'aretz? But that is the correct haftorah

You asked about Shabbos morning.

In how many situations do we take out 3 sifrei torah on shabbos morning, and what is the maximum number of times that it can happen in a given calendar year?

Only in Eretz Yisroel can Simchas Torah be on Shabbos.

Not exactly a riddle, but there are 7 Brachos that are recited every year, only once per year.

I don't have the time and/or patience to do the math, but I believe that there are at least 2 shabbatot rosh chodesh per year that aren't otherwise holidays where we would lein the Rosh Chodesh haftorah. Machar Chodesh is a little less likely only because if Rosh Chodesh is 2 days, and one is shabbos, we lein Shabbos Rosh Chodesh and not machar chodesh.

IINM, one of them is the Bracha on flowering trees said in Nisan

- What is the most commonly read torah section, and the max number of times per year it is read?
The answer is the last two paragraphs of the Rosh Chodesh Leining. In a 385 day year, there are 7 "full"months which mean it is read a max of 20 times - 19 times on Rosh Chodesh, and one on Shabbos Pinchas. In a 353 day  year, it would be read only 17 times, since there are three fewer days of rosh chodesh

I was going to say Rosh Chodesh, but then I figured that if one of them is Rosh Chodesh Teves, then there might be only one in that year - as is the case THIS YEAR.

There are more- the one from Noach is also read on Re'eh/Ki Tzeitzei

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
