A man phoned his daughter to ask her to buy a few things he needed for a trip. He told her she would find enough dollar bills for the purchase in an envolope on his desk. She found the note with 98 written on it.
In the store she bought $90 dollars worth of things, but when it was time to pay she not only did have $8 left over but she was short.
By how much and why?
(A). $4. She had read 86 upside down.
(B). Turn 9 upside down and exchange it with the 8. Both columms will add to 18.
The king dies and two men, the true heir and an impostor, both claim to be his long-lost son. Both fit the description of the rightful heir: about the right age, height, coloring and general appearance. Finally, one of the elders proposes a test to identify the true heir. One man agrees to the test while the other flatly re-fuses. The one who agreed is immediately sent on his way, and the one who re-fused is correctly identified as the rightful heir. Can you figure out why?
The test was a blood test. The elder remembered that the true prince was a hemophiliac.
Marco and Bob have been the best friends ever since they were little kids. They are also very competitive. Throughout the years they have challenged each other to do both physical and mental challenges. And they completed the challenge. But one day Marco thought of something to challenge Bob to do - something he could start but never finish. The average man could do it and so could Mark and they were both the same sex and the same size. It is a physical challenge. Can you figure out what it was?
Marco challenged Bob to get a tan, but he couldn't...Bob is an albino.
