Puzzle IconPolly Perkins was after a talking parrot, so she went to the local pet shop in the hope of securing such a find.

She was in luck. The shop assistant assured her that the parrot would learn and repeat any word or phrase it heard.

Polly was delighted. However, a week later, the parrot still hadn't spoken a word.

Polly returned to the shop to complain, however, it appeared that the assistant was accurate in what he had said, and refused a refund.

Why didn't the parrot talk?

Puzzle IconMy brother, Neville, struggles with mathematics a little.

I recently asked him to buy me some ribbon for my daughter's pretty pink bonnet.

He went to the haberdashery shop for the required length but accidentally interchanged the feet and inches.

When I measured the resulting ribbon I only had 30% of the length I required.

How much ribbon did I originally ask for?
