I’m not sure about the first one as that’s not a ‘sentence’ to start with.

It is a ‘sequence’ based on logic but perhaps I’m not reading the question properly.

[B]Edit:[/B] Hmmm… for some reason that box doesn’t display properly even though it does in the preview but you know what it’s meant to be.

Okay here’s another one.

A man lives in a square house with four southern facing walls.

One day he hears a commotion outside and rushes to the window just in time to see a bear killing another animal.

What colour was the bear?

There is a dead man in the center of a field.
He carried with him an unopened package.
As he neared the center of the field, he knew he was going to die.
How did he know he was going to die?

Took me a while thinking of this but is the field a radiation field and the package contains a Geiger counter?

Don’t have a clue on that one unless it’s a black bear and on your answer in post #5 not the answer mr.wombler

The man was Santa Claus, living on the North Pole, and a polar bear wearing a [B]red[/B] jersey got in a fight with one of Santa’s reindeer over who gets to pull Santa’s sleigh. :stuck_out_tongue:



#9

LOL!

Yes, as the building has four south facing walls it must be built at the North Pole, in which case the bear has to be a polar bear which is white.

Was he a skydiver whose parachute didn’t open?

#11

Another answer for the 2 question first post:
5 + 5 + 5 ≠550
The rest were answered already so no need to answer again.

What is the logic in this sequence of numbers below?

8 5 4 9 1 7 6 10 3 2 0


#15

[QUOTE=marloyd;2609521]What is the logic in this sequence of numbers below?

8 5 4 9 1 7 6 10 3 2 0[/QUOTE] Numbers zero thru ten sorted by their alphabetic representation (eight, five, four, …).

…or possibly the access code to your secret pr0n stash?


#16

Okay let’s try this one.

You are driving a red bus with a blue stripe around an unusually circular bus route.

As you leave the station four male drivers and one female driver cadge a lift.

At the first stop two of the male dirvers get off, six men and eleven women get on.

At the second stop thirteen men, five women and ten schoolchildren get on, three women get off and one male driver gets off.

At the third stop half the remaining women get off, the remainder of the male drivers get off, three men get off, two schoolchildren get off and two women and four men get on. One man changes his mind and gets back on the bus.

What is the bus driver’s name?

Correct. :iagree::wink:

Okay let’s try something hopefully with a bit more mileage in it.

A shopkeeper has three tins of sweets behind the counter one contains mints, one contains chocolates, and the remaining one contains a mixture of mints and chocolates.

All three tins are mislabelled however one says ‘Mints’ another says ‘Chocolates’ and the final one says ‘Mixture’.

You’re allowed to ask the shopkeeper for any number of sweets from any of the tins.

Although you can see the tins and their labels the shopkeeper when asked for a sweet from a particular tin will remove the sweet in such a way that you can’t see what else remains in the tin.

What is the minimum number of sweets that you need to ask the shopkeeper for to guarantee that you can correctly identify what each tin actually contains, and explain why?

This sentense contains two mistakes. What are the mistakes?
