4. ## 5x5 statement table.

I wish there were some easier logic than trial-and-error (if there is, I missed it), but I have found the solution:

13. ## 5x5 statement table.

If top-left corner (3) were true, then the three surrounding statements must also be true, and that implies that each of those is surrounded by at least three true statements. Since two of those statements claim to be surrounded by only two true statements, we have a contradiction. This proves the top-left corner to be false. There are others that can also be proven false, but I haven't had time to work out the full solution.
14. ## alphametic puzzle

To begin with, C must be less than 4, otherwise the sum would have 7 digits. If C is 3, then R is 9 and C+O+O+E < E, which is impossible, so C cannot be 3. This leaves only two options for C (either 1 or 2). If you try C=1 with various values for O, you can prove that C cannot be 1. Repeat with C=2 to find the solution.

SHINE -- If 0 then O from PHONE - 2; if 1 then H (P---S known, and POINT - 1 leaves H as only possible hit)
