Nope..
Okay, I will tell the answer.

Solution :

24 small squares + 11 squares having 2x2 dimensions + 4 squares having 3x3 dimensions + 1 Big Square.

Hope you all understood the solution.
Also I highlighted the area where I think most of you missed.

Anyone else up with a puzzle ?

 QUOTE Outside a room(having 3 bulbs) there are three light switches. Each switch is connected to a light bulb inside the room.(ONLY ONE).Each of the three switches can be either 'ON' or 'OFF'.You are allowed to set each switch the way you want it and then enter the room(NOTE: you can enter the room only once)Your task is to then determine which switch controls the bulb ??

.
.

==================================================
Solution :

1)Turn the first switch ON for some time. Then switch it off.
2)Then turn the second switch ON and enter the room.
3)The bulb which is ON is obviously connected to the SECOND switch.
4)Touch the other two bulbs. Whichever bulb is warm, that would be the bulb for the FIRST switch.
5)The other bulb is for the THIRD switch.

===================================================

Find the Odd man Out :

Also state the reason.

### #43 Posted 25 June 2013 - 07:25 PM

Here is how i solved it :

2:12 A ( 2:00 )
2:2 D ( 2:10 )
9:4 B ( 9:20 )
10:8 C ( 9:35 )

So as you can see , C should be 9:30 and not 9:35

Is it correct ?

I think you picked the right one but not the correct reason. There is two 8s and no 7 on that clock.

Yeah, actually my reason was quite simple: In C , the 'VII' is replaced by 'VIII'..
But Fable's reason also implies the same . He just said it in another way.
Btw correct, both of you.
Nice Work.

I have another one :

 QUOTE A man got killed in his office. The suspects are : Edison , Jason , Maxis , Jenny , Sofia , Patrick.A calendar found near the man has blood, written :6 , 4 , 9 , 10 , 11Who is the killer ?Also state the reason.

I think, only his name has 6 letters. None others match. Maybe that's why he's the killer.

Why do you quote my answer in that case? Just wait for a correct answer and then ask for the reason.

I think this topic is cool (I mean hot), but a bit messed up.

@OP: Why don't you create a scoring system and ask one question at a time? This way, it would be a bit organised and would attract a lot more members.

It is not that I dont want the scoring system. But I want a decent amount of members to be active here. There is no point in having a scoring system just for 3-4 members, right?

 QUOTE (Frenzzy) ask one question at a time

Sorry, I didnt get you. But I think thats what I am doing right now.(If I am not getting you wrong).
Care to elaborate ?
Or else, you could just send me a PM and tell what you actually want to convey.

I remember one of my friends asked me this before and I got it right.

It's Janna

Remember that:

June is represented by the 6 as it is the 6th month of the year.

April is represented by the 4 as it is the 4th month of the year.

September is represented by the 9 as it is the 9th month of the year.

October is represented by the 10 as it is the 10th month of the year.

November is represented by the 11 as it is the 11th month of the year.

The sum of these numbers are: 6+4+9+10+11 = 40

Now:

Lets represent A as 1, B as 2, C as 3, D as 4, E as 5 and so on...

And let's look at their names and correspond these letters with the numbers with the suspect names.

So..

For Edison it would be 5+4+9+19+15+14= 66.
For Maxis is would be 13+1+24+9+19=56
For Jason it would be 10+1+19+15+14= 59
And for Janna it would be 10+1+14+14+1= 40

That ladies' name is Jenny, not Janna.
A very nice try, though.

It was a nice problem dude. I enjoyed solving it.

Now if anyone wants to know how I made an image.

I'm looking into AceKingston's post now.
