  1. It does because the title is connected to the figure and the question.. The firgure are rectangles with elipse on top of one end.. no color, but common sense tells us it represent an arrangement of matchsticks that need to be modify for higher symmetry.. You could see dozen solutions easily , Yet chosen the square cross..why not the 2x2 square? why not the tic-tac-toe?

  8. A merchant bought 4 watches from a craftsman . On his way home he opened the box containing his purchase. He realized that one is telling a wrong time then notice one of them is not running while one of them is running at different speed..only one always tell the right time. He returned all the watches inside the box and brought it back to the craftsman. When the box was opened for complaint the craftsman told the merchant that none of the watches in that box tells the wrong time.
