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?
