  1. To offset the effect of guessing, true/false tests are often scored by subtracting the number of wrong answers from the number of right answers, with missed out questions not counted. Recently, a 30-item true/false test was scored like this, and Bill, Dot and 6 other students all got the same score, although no two of them answered the same number of questions. All eight belong to at least 2 of the 5 student clubs at their high school, but no two belong to the exactly the same combination of clubs. From the following clues, can you find the full name of each student (one last name is Mills), t
  2. As part of its community recreation program, Cozy Valley offers ten different activity courses each given once per week.

Although not last in line, the passenger for St. Paul stood further back than either Dawes or the passenger for Seattle (which wasn't Jean's destination). 2. Tom stood farther back than Elkins, but he wasn't last in line. 3. Alice stood just in front of Mr. Foley and just behind the passenger f

  6. So I was browsing the web, and I found this site (great site btw) and it reminded me of a puzzle by Julie Spence (no idea who she is) I had never been able to figure out, wonder if you guys can do it: There were seven babies born at Memorial Hospital one recent night. The night nurse was so busy she did not properly record all the births. Fortunately, from the notes she left, the day nurse was able to correctly identify all the babies. Those notes appear below. Can you determine the names of the babies born, the full names of each of their parents, and in what order the babies were born? The
