  1. Please forget the genders of the names.....! At least One has to be female to be engaged to a Male.
  2. Four friends named Karim, Lalit, Manjit, And Naresh (say K, L, M, & N), are enjoying in an engagement party. They are Artist, botanist, civil engineer and a dentist by profession (A, B, C, and D), though not necessarily in that order. Some known facts are as under: [1] N was heard saying to the botanist that M will be along in a minute, [2] Civil Engineer was seen congratulating the Dentist on his engagement to M. [3] And K took the picture of the Civil Engineer standing next to L. Now, from the above clues, how will you find out what is the profession of each person, and who’s engagement party is being held......????
  3. Check to see if a riddle has already been posted before you post it, bhramarraj. Thank you for pointing out. I did not search for it in the forum. Will take care in future....
  4. Really sorry to miss. It is 10 10 10.
  5. The question was supposedly asked in an iterview. Why it is better to have round manhole covers than the square one?
  6. Using only one straight line, can you turn 1010 into 'Nine Fifty'. You might have come across such types of so many tricky puzzles. This I liked very much. Please use spoiler for your answers. Thank you......!
  7. Well said....! Another unique sets of speeds is D=56, U=42, L=48. In this case (If time of travell remains same); Two equations will be: 6D+7L+8U=6*7*8*4 8D+7L+6U=6*7*8*5 Adding both equations we get: 14(D+L+U)= 6*7*8*9 Therefore D+L+U=216
  8. Before retiring to bed after dinner, Ajit was as usual relaxing in the balcony of his flat at 2nd floor. His attention was suddenly drawn towards a person walking down in the street. The person suspiciously looked his left and right, and then entered into a house. After two minutes Ajit heard sound of a gun shot. Immediately he rushed inside his bedroom and informed police control room on phone. While calling the police he was facing the mirror in his bedroom in which he was able to see the wall clock fixed on the opposite wall. He noted the time as seen in the mirror image of the wall clock, and also the actual time in the wall clock. He used to right the time like this: Five past seven - 5.07, 40 past one - 1.40 etc. Ajit was a Math wizard, so while watching his noted actual time, he noticed that if point was removed from the time, it becomes a number which is a square of a hole number. When he watched the noted time seen in the mirror image, he noticed that after removing the point from it and then adding 8 to it or substracting 15 from it, the resultant will be the squarees of whole numbers. Now our task is to find out what was the actual time of Gun - Shot, with the explanation how to arrive at the answer.
  9. shakingdavid and plainglazed, may please comment.......!
  10. Sorry.... my solution at post no. 80 was not clear and with some errors. So as a penalty I am posting more clear solution... thanks
  11. OP says farmer presently has 17 cows, after 'all but 9 cows die'. So answer to the question 'how many did he have left' is 17+9=26 cows, before 9 cows die. Otherwise OP would be like this "A farmer had 17 cows, all but 9 die. How many is he left with?"
  12. One typist types one page in two minutes. His typing speed decreases in successive time and thus he will not be able to type 9 pages in 18 minutes.
