Puzzle IconMany years ago, a cruise liner sank in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The survivors luckily landed on a remote desert island.

There was enough food for the 135 people to last four weeks.

Nine days later a rescue ship appeared, unluckily this ship also sank, leaving an additional 36 people stranded on the island to now share the original rationed food.

The food obviously had to be re-rationed, everyone was now on three-quarters of the original ration, so how many days in total would the food last, from the day of the original sinking?

Puzzle IconAfter the recent BrainBashers snail racing contest, the four contestants were congratulating each other.

  • Only one snail wore the same number as the position it finished in.
  • Alfred's snail wasn't painted yellow nor blue, and the snail who wore 3, which was painted red, beat the snail who came in third.
  • Arthur's snail beat Anne's snail, whereas Alice's snail beat the snail who wore 1.
  • The snail painted green, Alice's, came second and the snail painted blue wore number 4.
  • Anne's snail wore number 1.
Can you work out who's snail finished where, its number and the colour it was painted?

The light aircraft, whilst over the local forest, caught fire. Landing quickly was now the pilot's priority. Luckily a nearby airfield responded to the pilot's mayday and the situation was brought under control as soon as the aircraft landed.
