11) How much soil is there in a 2ft x 2ft x 4ft hole?
12) If two monkeys sit in the corner of a rectangular room and look at another pair of monkeys in the next corner and so on until every pair of monkeys in a corner was looking at another pair, how many monkeys could say they were looking at other monkeys?
13) Is it legal for a man to marry his widows sister?
14) If you take 2 apples from 3 apples what do you have?

I thought (3) was 1 1/2 Hours, and (7) is usually the match, assuming you have just entered the deserted house, but these cryptic questions always throw me...

I think 3) is 1 hour. One to start, one after half hour, and the third after the hour.


Other than that I got two or three more wrong...

along the same lines... If a wheel has 60 spokes, how many gaps are there?

No.3 - my reasoning was one now, one on the 1/2 hr, and one on the hour which will keep you high for another 1/2 hour - total 1 1/2 hors.
This higher maths is doing my head in---

Still say 1 1/2 hour - you said how long they will last!
