At the local games evening, four people were competing in the draughts and chess competitions.
Finley beat Jesse in chess, Dale came third and the 16 year old won.
Finley came second in draughts, the 15 year old won, Dale beat the 18 year old and the 19 year old came third.
Kelly is 3 years younger than Jesse.
The person who came last in chess, came third in draughts and only one person got the same position in both games.
Can you determine the ages of the people and their positions in the two games?
The letter was written on a typewriter which has a problem with the top row of letters - they did not print. The letter should have read:
I would like to complain about the top row of my typewriter.
These letters appear not to work correctly.

I would be very grateful if you could correct this problem forthwith.
I was having trouble sleeping last night and I tossed and turned well into the night.
Our local town hall has a clock which strikes on the hour and also strikes just once on the half hour.
During one of my more awake moments I heard the clock strike once, but I could not tell what time it was.
Half an hour later it struck once again, but I still could not tell what time it was.
Finally, half an hour later it struck once again and I knew what the time was.
What time was it?
Hint: When does the clock strike just once?
Answer: 1.30 in the morning.
The initial single strike was at 12.30.
