3.) the liar will point down the wrong road however.

not if he says he can't do it

16) 1 or 0 propositions are true.
let's assume they are all false

Golden box
The ring is in this box. so the ring isn't in it.

Silver box
The ring is not in this box. so the ring is here.

Lead box
The ring is not in the golden box. so the ring is in the golden box.

doesn't work.

let's assume one of them is right

the golden and silver box contradict each other if the silver one is set to false and not the golden one.
if golden and silver are false, and lead is true, the ring is in the silver box.
if golden and lead are false, they contradict each other.

the ring is in the silver box

I find the one about one liar and one truth teller to be intriguing. There is an easy way in reality, with a series of questions but to have only one question is hard to come up with.

If there are 3 roads then all I can muster is "which way do I not want to go? or which way does not lead to town"?

I don't understand why 2) is false

7) the shadow on the fence. more exactly the lack of a shadow on half of it.

1) It's not B, because if all Teegs were Torgs, then all Torgs would be Teegs (not worded that way in the problem. It's not A because not all Torgs are Teegs, meaning that, by extension, not all Torgs are Blargs. It's not C either because you can't be certain if all Teegs are Torgs. If that were the case, then it'd be C. However, the answer has to be:

D

2)

Mogg - He says that Bob or Zero is lying. If Bob is lying, then Mogg's a liar as well, making two liars.
Zero - Says that Jim is lying. If Jim is lying, then Zero is honest.
Jim - Says that Man is lying. If that were the case then Man and Phil would both be liars, thanks to Man's statement.

I would say that the one liar is Jim.

3)This one's tricky...

The liar will seek to contradict the honest man...so...

Wait a minute...

I'll tell each man to stand on the path that he thinks leads to town (not a question, it's a statement, so doesn't count against the limit). The honest man will pick the right one. I then ask:

"Which way did I come from?"

Want to guess what happens next?
The liar will have to make up a fake direction. The honest man will point correctly towards wherever I came from. Since the honest man also happens to be on the right path, guess where I'm going?

4) I don't get it...is it a whole third row or do I have to fill in the blanks?

5) They were asleep and it was a dream?

6)

7) The tree is not casting a shadow...

8) 11111221

The first two numbers have no 2's. The next two have one in the first and second positions, respectively. The fifth has 2 twos, in the positions four and five.

The numbers themselves have 1 digit, 2 digits, 2 digits, 4 digits and 6 six digits respectively. By assuming that the twos follow the same logic as the number increase then it has to be an eight digit number with the twos in the 6th and seventh positions.

*hope this made sense...my head nearly exploded*

9) Um...math draws me to say 72...but then again it wouldn't be a hole if it had dirt, now would it?

So, no dirt in the hole.

10) You place the table against the wall, and saw it apart...then crawl out of the opening...

11) Maybe later
12) Ditto

13) Once. After that it becomes 30, and has no 2's.

14) Because the upper floors are under construction?
(Lol...don't even ask why I said that...had to do with the rain bit)

15) If B is telling the truth, then that would mean C would be lying, which would mean that B is supposed to be lying because C is telling the truth. Paradox.

If B were lying, then C would be telling the truth, and B would be a Swindlecant and C would be an Honestant.
(There's your answer.)

16) It has to be the Silver Box, because if the Silver Box is false, then the Lead Box is true, and the Golden Box is false (one true). If the Lead Box is true, then it can't be the Golden Box, but the Silver would also be true. If the Golden Box were true, then the Silver Box would also be true, which makes 2 trues.

Silver Box

17) Weren't we just told?

18) Maybe later...

Yes but you KNOW where you came from

For that (3) you ask him this: Which one of the roads will the other guy point to?

and you take the other one.

14) He's a dwarf, normally he can only reach the button for floor seven; he needs someone else or his brolly to go all the way up (although, he could probably just take his brolly whatever the weather...).
