So here is a bonus round for 15pts:

post-4396-1203094147_thumbjpg

*Using above diagram, arrange numbers from 1 to 8 by placing each of them into the box' space.

*Make sure they will not be one side closer to their left and right number.

*For example if number 3 is placed in the center, it must not be surrounded by 2 or 4 vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. They must be one number away from each other.

Good luck and I hope this is easy. Use the diagram instead.

New mechanics:

  • Each riddles coming from me will have a corresponding point that may vary on how I think it must offer a score, regardless of its difficulties.
  • Only answers inside the spoiler are accepted.
  • Answers will no longer be posted here.
  • If you want to ask for the answers, just send me a private message with the riddle code (e.g. 010). If you haven't given your guess yet, your answer will be forfeited after I sent you the answers.
  • Scores will always be updated everytime I check each participants answers so that old riddles can also be answered by others.
  • Your names and your ranks (based on your total points) will be placed in my signature.
  • Lastly, sorry for the bad grammars! Lol!

Before everything, let's recall our participant's current scores:

1st....niner.......................70/77

2nd....bonanova....................67/77

3rd....cpotting....................52/77

8th....Morbo.......................24/77

9th....storm.......................20/77

025. Complete withinout without[?] changing the answer of the question below.

Q: There is only one cake left and yet there are five hungry childrens. How are you going to divide the cake so that all of them will be satisfied?

A: I am going to divide the cake by ________.

Perhaps you can explain what you want us to do for this question - it's a bit cryptic.

Or is that part of the puzzle?

Do you mean simply put a single word where you have the underlines?

Thanks.
