Can you find a five digit number that, if you place a 9 at the beginning to make a new number, is fours times larger than if you place the 9 at the end instead?
In 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'?
[Ref: ZMDQ]
Hint: There is a little trick in this question.
Answer: Yes.
I is the first letter of igloo!
Puzzle 19
What 5 digit number am I thinking of.
It has two prime digits.
Digit 3 is the highest digit.
Digit 2 is lowest digit.
Digit 1 is higher than the sum of digits 4 and 5.
Digit 5 is half of digit 4.
Digit 1 is one smaller than digit 3.
Digit 5 is between digit 2 and digit 1
There are no duplicates and the digit 0 doesn't appear.
Hint: Remember that each of them told the truth in one of the statements and lied in the other.
Answer: Brian robbed the Post Office.
We know that each of them told the truth in one of the statements and lied in the other.
So according to Alan, as one of his statements is false, it must have been either Derek or Brian.
If it was Derek then Brian's statements would both be true, which isn't allowed.
Therefore it was Brian, which agrees with Charles and Derek's statements.
