- 32. Logic!! Question #2 Eight eggs look identical except one is lighter. How can you weigh only 2 times on a balance scale to find out which one is lighter?
- 33. Solution: If we give a number for each egg, said form 1 to 8. We put egg 1, 2, and 3 on the left and egg 4, 5 and 6 on the right and weight them. If they are balanced then we know egg 1 to 6 are OK. We just need to put egg 7 on one side and egg 8 on the other side and weight them. Otherwise, one side will be lighter. We just assume the left side is lighter we can just put egg 1 on the left, egg 2 on the right, weight them one more time. If they are balanced then egg 3 is lighter. Otherwise if left side is lighter, ball 1 is lighter. If right side is lighter, ball 2 is lighter.
- 34. Logic !! Question #3 Use the given relationships between the figures and words to find two solutions: = L A G = L E B = _ _ _ = R A B = R E G R E B R A G = ??
- 35. Answer: = L E G R E B R A G = Notice that horizontal figures both contain an L, the two vertical figures contain an R. The equation with two figures both contain a B and the equation with three figures both have a G. The circles have an A and the diamonds an E. Therefore, L = horizontal R= vertical G = 3 B =2 A = E =
- 36. Logic!! Question #4 We paint each face of the 4 feet cube with the color red, then cut the cube into 64 one foot small cubes. How many small cubes will have no red color on any side of the cube? How many small cubes have 1 face with red color? How many small cubes have 3 faces with red color?
- 37. Answer: If you cut out 2 feet from each side (one foot from each end), the remaining cubes will have 2 x 2 x2 = 8. Only 8 cubes have no color. For each side, the middle 4 cubes have one face with color. There are 6 sides for a cube. Therefore there are 4 x 6 = 24 cubes with one red face. Only corner cube will have 3 red face. Since there are 8 corners, 8 cubes have 3 red face.
- 38. Logic !! Question #5 I have a horse. Do you know what color it is? A said, "I guess it is not black". B said, "It is either brown, or gray". C said "I know it is gray". I said, "At least one of you is right and at least one of you is wrong." What is the color of my horse if the color is one of the above?
- 39. Answer: If the horse is brown. then every one is right. This is not the answer. If the horse is black, then every one is wrong. This is not the answer either. Therefore, the horse is gray. To verify the answer, A was right, B was right, but C was wrong.
- 40. Logic !! Question #6 Solve the following: ABCD x 4= DCBA ON x 4 = GO

- 69. Question 1 Long time ago, a rancher spent $100.00 and bought 100 animals. There were 3 kind of animals he bought: each Bull cost him $10.00, each Cow cost him $5.00 and each Calf cost him $0.50. How many he bought for each kind of animal?
- 70. Answer: 1 Bull + 9 Cows + 90 Calves. (Assume the number of bulls he bought was X, the number of cows he bought was Y, and the number of calves he bought was Z. Thus, we have 2 equations: 1). X + Y + Z = 100 2). 10X + 5Y + 0.5Z = 100 From equation 1, we can have Z = 100 - X – Y. If we substitute Z in equation 2, then we can come up with the equation: 19X + 9Y = 100. Since X and Y must be whole numbers, when X = 1 (minimum), Y will be the maximum (9). When Y = 1, X will be the maximum(4). We can easily figure out X = 1 and Y = 9. From equation 1, we can figure out Z = 90.)
- 71. Question 2 Solve the cryptarithm : NOON MOON + SOON JUNE

- 75. Question 4 Two women were selling marbles in the market place – one at three for a paisa and the other at two for a paisa. One day both of them were obliged to return home when they each had thirty marbles unsold. They put together the two lots of marbles and handing them over to a friend asked her to sell them at five for 2 paise. According to them, 3 for one paisa and 2 for 1 paisa was the same as 5 for 2 paisa. Now they were expecting to get 25 paise for the marbles, as they would have got, had they sold separately. But much to their surprise, they got only 24 paise for the entire lot. Now where did the one paisa go? Can you explain the mystery?
