  • Letters 4-5-2-3 spell out a fruit.
  • Letters 1-2-6 spell out a pet.
  • Letters 3-2-6 spell out a pest, which often gets eaten by 1-2-6.

Actually I do all the puzzles including the CryptoQuotes and Scramlets in the local paper every day so puzzle was easy for me.

A high school has a strange principal. On the first day, he has his students perform an odd opening day ceremony:

There are one thousand lockers and one thousand students in the school. The principal asks the first student to go to every locker and open it. Then he has the second student go to every second locker and close it. The third goes to every third locker and, if it is closed, he opens it, and if it is open, he closes it. The fourth student does this to every fourth locker, and so on. After the process is completed with the thousandth student, how many lockers are open?

This one is kind of hard…. The way I see it, and this might be off a bit is - based off of the number of students tasked with open/closing the lockers the lockers will be changed an odd number of times, because the open lockers would be based off of squared numbers, for example 1,4,9, etc …etc.. divisible by odd whole numbers, and the closed lockers would be divisible by even whole numbers. So it would have to be 31 because 32 would be over a thousand and there are only a thousand students.

So I’m going with 31 left open ?
