England      12,000 miles
Peru          6,000 miles

Puzzle IconIn a dictionary, the verb 'BE' has a number of definitions and forms:

BE [verb]

be    I am going to be watching the squirrels dance.
am    I am watching the squirrels dance.
is    She is watching the squirrels dance.
are   You are watching the squirrels dance.
was   She was watching the squirrels dance.
were  We were watching the squirrels dance.
been  They have been watching the squirrels dance.


Therefore you can correctly say 'I am', 'she is', 'you are', etc.

Is it ever grammatically correct to say 'I is'?

Paintballing Weekend

During a crazy weekend of paintball, four friends were having great fun.

The paint came in blue, green, yellow and red.

Coincidentally, the four friends had T-shirts in those same colours.

Brenda used blue paint balls. The person in the green T-shirt used yellow paint balls. James was not wearing a red T-shirt. Diane used green paint balls and wore a blue T-shirt. Simon was the only person who used paint which was the same colour as his T-shirt.

Can you tell which colour paint they each used and the colour of their respective T-shirts?
