Puzzle IconBelow are six animals that have been split.

Take a set of three letters from the left column, and a set of three letters from the right column and merge them together again, without changing the order of the letters in each half.

Matching sets will not necessarily be on the same row.

For example WMB + OAT and OAT + WMB both equal WOMBAT as the order of the letters OAT, and WMB remain the same.

For another example, RABBIT could become RBT + ABI.

Can you fill the thermometers with mercury, such that the numbers outside the grid indicate how many cells in each row and column contain mercury.

Mercury always starts filling from the bottom of a thermometer and not every thermometer has to contain mercury.

BrainBashers Sports Day

During the recent BrainBashers school sports day, four students were competing in the 400 metres hurdles. Official figures mysteriously went missing just after the event, however, various spectators could remember the following information. Glen was never suspected though!

1. Alex won and wore red.
2. The student wearing number 1 came third.
3. Blake beat the student in yellow, but wasn't wearing number 2.
4. Only one student finished in the same position as the number they wore, but they didn't wear red.
5. Emery beat the student wearing number 3 and Glen wore yellow.
6. The student in green wore number 2.
7. A spectator remembered one student wore blue, but couldn't remember anything else about them.

Can you determine the positions the students finished in, along with the numbers and colours they wore?

Greenjack Round #1

You find yourself playing a game with your friend.

It is played with a deck of only 16 cards, divided into 4 suits:

   Red, Blue, Orange and Green.

There are four cards in each suit:

   Ace, King, Queen and Jack.

Ace outranks King, which outranks Queen, which outranks Jack - except for the Green Jack, which outranks every other card.

If two cards have the same face value, then Red outranks Blue, which outranks Orange, which outranks Green, again except for the Green Jack, which outranks everything.

Here's how the game is played: you are dealt one card face up, and your friend is dealt one card face down. Your friend then makes some true statements, and you have to work out who has the higher card, you or your friend. It's that simple!

Round 1:
You are dealt the Green Ace and your friend makes three statements:

1. My card is higher than any Queen.
2. Knowing this, if my card is more likely to beat yours, then my card is Blue. Otherwise it isn't.
3. Given all of the information you now know, if your card is more likely to beat mine, then my card is a King. Otherwise it isn't.

Who has the higher card, you or your friend?
