Terms & Conditions
Using the BrainBashers E-commerce solution, James ordered a fishing rod, priced at $3.56.
Unfortunately, James is an fisherman who lives in a very remote part of Greenland and the import rules there forbid any package longer than 4 feet to be imported.
The fishing rod was 4 feet and 1 inch, just a little too long, so how can the fishing rod be mailed to James without breaking the rules? Ideally James would like the fishing rod to arrive in one piece!
Hint: The fishing rod does end up in a real box.
One solution is to use a box which measures 4 feet on all sides, the fishing rod will fit within the diagonal of the box with room to spare.
If Fred the Squirrel can find one nut in 15 minutes and Jane the Squirrel can find one nut in 12 minutes.
How many whole nuts will they accumulate in a day if they work together.
Bearing in mind their daughter, Teresa, takes 20 minutes to eat a nut and she eats all day long!
Fred finds 4 every hour, Jane finds 5 every hour and Teresa eats 3 every hour, so the total per hour is 6, which is 6 x 24 = 144 in a day. QED.
He and she both have one each, but every person has two.
A citizen has three and a human being has four.
A personality has five and an inhabitant of earth has six.
Hint: Look at the words.
Study this paragraph and all things in it. What is vitally wrong with it? Actually, nothing in it is wrong, but you must admit that it is most unusual. Don't just zip through it quickly, but study it scrupulously. With luck you should spot what is so particular about it and all words found in it. Can you say what it is? Tax your brains and try again. Don't miss a word or a symbol. It isn't all that difficult?
Hint: Which letter is missing?
The paragraph does not contain an E, it does contain all of the other letters though.
