 Posted: Thu Dec 29, 2005 8:52 am    Post subject: TEASERS 4 ALL Hi folks, Let me see who can solve all these teasers. 1) CRACK THE CODE In an attempt to further protect his secret chicken recipe, Colonel Sanders has locked it away in a safe with a 10-digit password. Unable to resist his crispy fried chicken, you'd like to crack the code. Try your luck using the following information: All digits from 0 to 9 are used exactly once. No digit is the same as the position which it occupies in the sequence. The sum of the 5th and 10th digits is a square number other than 9. The sum of the 9th and 10th digits is a cube. The 2nd digit is an even number. Zero is in the 3rd position. The sum of the 4th, 6th and 8th digits is a single digit number. The sum of the 2nd and 5th digits is a triangle number. Number 8 is 2 spaces away from the number 9 (one in between). The number 3 is next to the 9 but not the zero 2)ITS JUST NOT POSSIBLE!!!! When Question Mark was showing Skid Mark that he could turn 3 cups up the right way in 2 moves, turning 2 cups at a time, Skid laughed and said "That's easy!" The cups were arranged like so: Down - Up - Down The 2 moves were: Up - Down - Down Up - Up - Up When Question Mark turned 1 cup over to reset the challenge, Skid just couldn't do it. Why? 3) Reveal IT Sunshine, bananas, and a phone book All share one common look. The third in a set You can guess, I'll bet What this is? 4) WHAT AM I? I have 3 hands, All have a purpose. I count the hours, I count the minutes, I count the seconds, Of every day. Every one of those is important for me to count. I must never stop or people get frustrated. I can never die, though I may stop, But it isn't my fault. 5)IDENTIFY ME!!!! I am used to live, to get what you need, You have all used me, I come from many different places, On me are many different faces. Every country is in need of me. Too little of me has been a cause for poverty, I am a primary target for people to steal. If you think I am power, you are getting close. What am I?
