On each row place a three letter word that can be attached to the end of the word to the left and to the beginning of the word to the right to give a longer word in each case. When completed the initial letters of the added words will give a capital city reading downwards. What is it?

he shops are already starting to get busier in the lead up to Christmas.

When Mr McHale joins the queue he already has six people in front of him.

There are two people between Mr McHale and Mrs Douglas.

Mrs Edwards is ahead of Mrs James.

Mrs O’Dowd is behind Mrs Douglas but in front of Mr Baker.

Mr Choudhury is behind Mrs James.

What is the order of the seven people queueing?

I've had a good look at it Mrs A.

I can't seem to find a connection within each segment or overall.

Opposite segments seem to add up to the same number.

So I think the answer is 3

I may be wrong of course Embarassed Very Happy

Records at an insurance company showed that the first 30 customers made an average of five claims each through their lifetime.

After the records of a further 75 customers had been assessed, the average claims rose to six per customer.

What was the average number of claims by the last 75 customers only?
