Puzzle #1

Puzzle #3

Puzzle #4

Puzzle #5

50 chocolate candies are in a box; 30 of them are caramel-filled; 25 are coconut-filled; 10 of them have both, and the rest are just plain chocolate.

Which image best represents the box of chocolates?

How many did you solve? None? OK, i’m not the only one then!:)

Here are the answers:

Puzzle #1: The car is parked in parking spot #87. How? Just turn the image upside down.

Puzzle #2: The bus is travelling to the left (unless you are from the UK, in which case the bus is travelling to the right). Why is that? Because we can’t see the door in the picture which means it’s on the other side!

Puzzle #3: The answer is 4. The answer comes from the number of circles in each four-digit number. For example, 6 has one circle, and 8 has 2 hence, 9999 is 4.

Puzzle #4: D = 1345, E = 2440
The numbers at the bottom level are connected to the upper level. Add the numbers in the bottom line: 198 + 263 = 461.
The number you get is greater than the neighbor above. Subtract the numbers: 461 – 446 = 15.
All other squares in the pyramid produce 15 so 1345 and 2440 are the only answers that work.

Puzzle #5: Diagram B is the one that matches. There are 20 caramel candies in the box, 15 coconut and 5 (50 – [20+15+10]) plain chocolate ones.
