A pack of cards has 40 cards. You are blindfolded. Out of 40, 25 cards are facing down while 15 are facing up. You have been asked to divide this pack of cards into two decks - so that each deck contains an equal number of face up cards. Remember, you are blindfolded.

How will you do it?

Create a new deck of the exactly same number of cards as are face up cards in the original deck.Take 15 number of cards in a new deck and change their face direction. For example- You create a new deck of 15 cards and out of 15, 5 faces up in a new deck. So remaining 10 faces up are in the old deck. But hey! while creating the new deck you reversed the face direction of new cards. So actually the 5 cards which were facing up are actually face down in the new deck while 10 faces up.

I have nine bottles of wine and one of the nine bottles is poisoned.

I need to find the poisoned bottle with two facts

(1) Poison is deadly, only a sip will cost death

(2) I have two mice to do so.

How should I do it?

Lets, say the Mice are Mice1 and Mice2 and Bottle are WineBottle1,WineBottle2....WineBottle9

== Step A ==

Mice1 drinks WineBottle1 WineBottle2 & WineBottle3

Mice2 drinks WineBottle1 WineBottle4 & WineBottle5

Cases:

If both mice dies, WineBottle1 is the poison bottle.

If only mice Mice1 dies, Either WineBottle2 or WineBottle3 is the poison bottle.

If only mice Mice2 dies, Either WineBottle4 or WineBottle5 is the poison bottle.

If nobody dies, Posion is in WineBottle6 WineBottle7 WineBottle8 or WineBottle9

== Step B(If nobody dies) ==

Mice1 drinks WineBottle6 WineBottle7

Mice2 drinks WineBottle6 WineBottle8

Cases:

If both mice dies, WineBottle6 is the poison bottle.

If only mice Mice1 dies, WineBottle7 is the poison bottle.

If only mice Mice2 dies, WineBottle8 is the poison bottle.

If nobody dies, WineBottle9 is the poison bottle.

== Step2: (Only Mice1 dies - Either WineBottle2 or WineBottle3 is the poison bottle) ==

Mice2 drinks WineBottle2, if Mice2 dies WineBottle2 is the poison bottle else WineBottle3

== Step2: (Only Mice2 dies - Either WineBottle4 or WineBottle5 is the poison bottle) ==

Mice1 drinks WineBottle4, if Mice1 dies WineBottle4 is the poison bottle else WineBottle5

Can you count number of seconds in a year ?

Clue: You need to bother about calculation.

24

Clarification :

Each month contains two second

* second December

* twenty-second December

In this manner 2 * 12 months = 24

-->> Numerical Answer <<--

Mathematical Answer = number of seconds in a minute * number of minute in an hour * number hour in a day * number of day in year

60 * 60 * 24 * 365 = 31536000

60 * 60 * 24 * 365.25 = 31557600 (leap year is considered here)

Things are just as they seem, right? Well, check again. Can you count the number of tigers in this picture ?

Can you find out which number multiplied by itself will give the output as 12345678987654321 ?

1 * 1 = 1

11 * 11 = 121

111 * 111 = 12321

1111 * 1111 = 1234321
