Puzzle IconThe other day I was sitting in my local tavern, The Spyglass, which overlooks the sea, when in sailed my old friend the pirate Captain Conan Drum. "Well, shiver me barnacles!" he roared on seeing me. He too is a bit of a puzzle addict and so, after joining me for a glass of milk and telling me about his latest exploits on the high seas, he couldn't resist showing me his latest conundrum.

He reached into one of his jacket pockets and produced seven gleaming £5 coins, which he then proceeded to arrange on the table in front of me exactly as shown below. "Now, me lad." he said, with a mischievous look in his eyes. "I'll wager you'll not be able to solve this one. Take away two coins from this here arrangement to leave five coins across and three coins going down."

It was clear the wily old sea dog still had one or two tricks up his sleeve, as I couldn't for the life of me see how it could be done. Can you see through his skulduggery and solve it?

Puzzle IconFor being good at the garden fete, four children were each given two sweets.

Jesse had an orange sweet.
One child who had a red one also had a blue one.
No child had two sweets of the same colour.
A child who had a green sweet also had a red one.
Jamie didn't have a red sweet and Jo had a green one.
Jules didn't have an orange one and Jesse had no blue sweets.

Knowing that there were two sweets of each colour, can you tell the colours of the sweets each child had?
