7. 10201 poker cases and 2 scales

Hi, this is a riddle I just created. Sorry for my broken English, it's not my native language. There are two version of almost the same idea. The 1st one is purest, but the second one is more tricky. I think it's quite difficult to solve, but there is no need for any mathemical knowledge. First version of the riddle A poker manufacturer has created 10201 cases each containing 100 chips. (Note: 10201=101*101) 10200 of these cases are perfect and each of their chips weighs 10g. One of these cases is defective and its 100 chips weigh 11g each. In order to determine which of the 1020

8. Two boys problem

Hi Nemesis. As it has been verified that one of the two dogs is a male, the only probability for the other also being a male is that both are males, as given by the remaining three equally likely possibilities (1,2,3). As both 2 and 3 are invalid, 1 is the only valid result.

12. Crocodile Sophism

Crocodile Sophism - Back to the Paradoxes A slim crocodile living in Nile took a child. Mother begged to give him back. The crocodile could not only talk, he was also a great sophist, and so he stated: "If you guess (Edited: predict the fate = guess correctly), what I will do with him, I will return him. However, if you don't guess his fate I'll eat him." What statement shall the mother make to save her child (what about a vicious circle ...)?

13. Poisonous apples

There are two bowls that you and a challenger must eat from. After flipping a coin you were selected to pick the bowl that each would eat from. In the first bowl there are three out of five poisonous apples. In the second bowl, there are two out of five poisonous apples. Whoever eats from the first bowl must eat two apples at random from the bowl. Whoever eats from the second bowl must eat three random apples from the second bowl. Which bowl should you pick to eat?

14. Triangle

Form a "Triangle" With 10 blocks in its top row, 9 blocks in the next row, etc., until the bottom row has one block. Each row is centered below the row above it. Color the blocks in the top row red, white, or green (or any three colors of your choosing) in any way. Use these two rules to color the remaining rows of the triangle: - If two consecutive blocks in a row have the same color, the block between them in the row below has the same color - If two consecutive blocks in a row have different colors, the block between them in the row below has the third color Tell how you can a

16. Hats on a death row!! One of my favorites puzzles!

Revolt. The king is totally corrupt. The concept of justice is perverted. He doesn't deserve to be king. When everyone is lined up, everybody jump the guards and fight your way out. It is better too die on your feet than live on your knees.

17. Photochromism 326 BC

I sort of hesitate to relay a tongue in cheek report I read a while back that photochromic materials are not of recent discovery, but were actually known back in the time of Alexander the Great. A black substance could be ground into powder and dissolved in water. Alexanderâ€™s troops would soak strips of cloth torn from their togas in this solution and tie them around their wrists. As the sun rose, traversed the sky and then set, the treated cloth would change color, and by glancing at them his men could tell the approximate time of day. They called it Alexanderâ€™s Rag Time Band.

18. HTML help

I am attempting to develop a website for a university project where I am supposed to create a quiz that stores the users name and answers then decides if the answers are sufficient for mastery. If the student does well enough then a 'certificate' is printed to the screen for the user to print out their recognition. If they do not then it reports back their answers so that the student knows to go back and study. The problem is, is that we are supposed to build this website in google sites. i have little qualms with google sites for the project is almost complete except for the fact that

20. Walking, running, driving, waiting

With a tip of the hat to @BMAD for his interesting puzzle. For your amusement, here's an interesting spin on this genre: One night you encounter a two-hour traffic delay due to an accident (the tow truck had difficulty clearing the road.) So, for a time interval 13 of two hours you were constrained to travel at 0 mph. You called home and said, sorry dear, but I'll be two hours late getting home. The next night, for some unimaginable reason, you were also constrained to travel part of the way at 0 mph, this time for a distance of one inch. What do you say now when you call hom

22. HTML help

HTML alone is not enough to create website that evaluates correct quiz answers as far as I know. You would need some scripts for that. Or you could use easy online solutions which help you to create the quiz without coding: http://www.surveymonkey.com/ http://polldaddy.com/
