604. Which set of numbers would most logically come next in the following
sequence?

10 1 9 2 8 3 7 4 6 5 5 6 4 7 3 8 2

(a) 9 1 (b) 9 3 (c) 8 5 (d) 6 7

The correct answer is (a) 9 1. There are two series, one starting with 10 and going down one number each time, and one starting with 1 and going up one number.

605. In this question you have a fifty-fifty chance of guessing right since there
are only two possible answers. All of us know that the five American states which are either touching or sitting in the Pacific Ocean are Alaska, Hawaii,
Washington, Oregon, and California. So we should find it simple to answer whether Reno, Nevada, is east or west of Los Angeles, California.

606. If the only sister of your mother's only brother has an only child, what

610. Here's another palindrome.......what's a rather slang term for a golf match?

611. The problem is to find three different digits such that, in whatever order
they are used to make a three-digit number, that number will not be divisible by:

3, 5, 7, 11, 13, or 17

Furthermore, since more than one solution is possible, we are looking for the three digits whose product is the greatest.

To ensure that there is no ambiguity, suppose the three digits are a, b, and c. Then, none of the numbers:

abc, acb, bac, bca, cab, and cba

will divide by 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, or 17

and also the product of a x b x c must be as large as possible.

The three digits are 2, 8, and 9.

612. The following 16 letters can be anagrammed into a five-word phrase meaning
"everyone is in it together."

613. The name of an American city is hidden in the sentence below. Can you
find it? The letters are in consecutive order.

614. The new teacher thought she'd get the children to drink the milk at recess
more cheerfully by offering cookies with it. A lot of the children had illnesses and were out, causing various numbers of children to be present each day. One
day the teacher noted that if there were five fewer children the next day, they would each get two cookies more if she brought the same number she had that day. However, the absentee list was low the next day, and she had four more children instead of five fewer. This meant that each received one cookie less than each
child had received the day before. How many cookies did the children get the second day?

615. Farmer Higgs owns three pink pigs, four brown pigs, and one black pig. How
many of Higgs's pigs can say that it is the same color as another pig on Higgs's farm?
