At a recent Pets Anonymous reunion, the attendees were discussing which pets they had recently owned.

James used to have a dog. The person who used to own a mouse now owns a cat, but the person who used to have a cat does not have a mouse. Kevin has now or used to have a dog, I can't remember which. Becky has never owned a mouse. Only one person now owns the pet they previously had. Rebecca said very little throughout the meeting and nobody mentioned the hamster.

Can you determine who owns which pet and what they used to own?

I reckon for each century there are 20 - 1 in each 10, plus 11 for 90-99. So 0-899 there must be 180. Then there's an extra 100 from 900-999 on top of the 20 there normally is, so 180+120=300.

Dunno if this has been posted but it's a question that was used in the past in the tests for candidates for posts in RAF intelligence.

A traveller arrives at a fork in the road and is not sure which fork to take. There are two men guarding the routes. One is from the town where all the inhabitants tell the truth and one is from the town where they all tell lies. Which single question can the traveller ask either guard which will allow him to work out which road to take to the town where everyone tells the truth.

Ask either one which way the other one would tell them to go, then take the opposite road?

Clever girl - Did you join up?

No but I did love the film "Labrynth" when I was younger.

This pre-supposes that the people from the town where they tell the truth know that the people from the town where people lie are liars and vice versa. If this is the case, the people from the town where they tell the truth would presumably say that they didn't know whereas the liars would just guess. Or, rather than guessing would say that they do know when they don't.

Took me time to work it out but I put that down to the intoxication of winning away and scoring four goals in the process.

Have just noticed your badge sadiejane. It's not a riddle but have you followed the fortunes of the Labour Party in NZ by any chance? They have spent nine years in the opposition wilderness under a succession of ineffectual leaders, especially the last one, an angry unionist who had no electoral appeal and whose personal popularity as a future leader never rose above mid-twenties.

Just a few weeks from the general election on September 23 he stood down to be replaced by a vibrant young (mid thirties) lady who immediately attracted zillions into the party coffers and support which has the main parties level pegging in the polls. It will be an interesting election.

If you know this one, please don't answer and leave it for others to work out.

James- Mouse Dog

Kevin- Dog Cat

Becky- Hamster Hamster

Rebecca- Cat Mouse

He has to number each of the rooms in the hospital with plastic numbers.

However, he has run out of the number 9.

How many 9's must Dave buy in order to number all 1,000 rooms?

Now tell me it's 218 again.

Sponsored links:On the way back, Kevin drove to begin with, and Daniel took over for the last 100 miles.

Who drove the most?

D = 100 + (x-90) = x + 10

Daniel drove the most.

Was doing it on say 110 miles.

Trip a

Kevin 90

Daniel 20

Return trip

Daniel 100

Kevin 10

So Daniel 120 and Kevin 100

I did this at least four times and don't know how I said Kevin.
