Diagram One is that of the numbers 1,2,3, and 4; each of which is surrounded by eight circles, all of which contain a different letter. The eight circles around each of the four numbers can be 'flipped over' the number itself either vertically or horizontally. For example, in Diagram One, if the letters around the number 1 were flipped vertically, A and F would swap places, B and G would swap places, C and H would swap places and D and E would remain in the same position.
Diagram Two is that of Diagram One after each of the four numbers have been flipped over either vertically or horizontally. In which direction have the letters around each number been flipped over to arrive at the positions shown is diagram Two?
of the dots/mirrors are not in place: five dots (X), six mirrors
from lower left to upper right (Y), and three mirrors from upper
left to lower right (Z). See if you can determine which of the squares
containing '?' should be replaced by:
The other day, the stationery clerk asked George, Fred and Arthur if they would carry some parcels of stationery to the typists' office. There were six parcels in all: one large parcel, which weighed the same as the two medium-sized parcels, which in turn weighed the same as the three small-sized parcels. The stationery clerk then said that one person could carry the large parcel, one person could carry the two medium-sized parcels and one person could carry the three small parcels; that way all three would be carrying the same weight of stationery anyway and said that they would only carry the stationery to the typists on the following conditions-
George would only carry the
two medium-sized parcels if Fred carried the three small parcels. Fred
would only carry the three small parcels if George carried the large parcel.
George would only carry the large parcel if Arthur would carry the two
medium-sized parcels. Arthur would carry the two medium-sized parcel if
Fred carried the large parcel. George would only carry the three small
parcels if Arthur carried the large parcel. All this time the stationery
remained stationary. Eventually the stationery clerk came up with a solution
to keep all three happy. Who carried what to the typists?
Q4. Letter Boxes
When the diagram below is complete, each column and row should contain the letters A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I and J. See if you can complete the diagram by fitting the nine blocks of nine letters into the nine highlighted squares, then filling in the spaces along the top row and in the first column.
Q5. Logic Box
Using the following clues, place the letters A to I inclusive into the grid. G is above I and to the right of B. C is to the right of H and above I which is to the left of D. B is to the left of E. H is above F and B. A is above E. ('Above' refers to two letters in the same column. 'Left of/right of' refers to two letters in the same row.)
