Mind Games: Time Puzzles & Lateral Thinking Exercises

Last month, we published some mathematical puzzles  in CCM Midweek Digest.
The challenge was to be the first to get all answers right, and win Ksh 500. That offer still stands in today's set of lateral thinking exercises. Simply send your answers to connect@complit.co.ke or Inbox our CCM Facebook page.

Following are this week's questions:

Age ain't nothing but a number

The age of a woman’s husband is represented by the figures of her age reversed. He is older than she is, and the difference in their ages is 1/11 their sum. What are their respective ages?

All kinds of time

How many minutes is it until six o’clock if fifty minutes ago it was four times as many minutes past three o’clock?

Miracle baby?

How could a baby fall out of a twenty-story building onto the ground and live?

All eggs in one basket?

There are six eggs in the basket. Six people each take one of the eggs. How can it be that one egg is left in the basket?

See no evil..

A police officer saw a truck driver clearly going the wrong way down a one-way street, but did not try to stop him. Why not?

As always, we shall publish the solutions and the winners (it could be you) in next week's CCM Midweek Digest.
