You can’t see inside the room, and you can’t open the door except to enter the room. You can enter the room only once, and when you do, all the lamps must be turned off. How can you tell which switch turns on which lamp?

Blimey, there’s some yed scratchers there Mrs A, most of which I’m thinking about.

I think I’ve sussed Q3.
I could see that the letter order in the middle of each word was similar.
If you move the first letter of each word to the end of the word, then the word reads the same backwards.

Q9 Not really sure about these :-

Polish is a nationality or a means of cleaning with a different pronunciation.

Job is a man’s (Biblical) name or an occupation.

Herb is a man’s name? or a bit of greenage, this is a VERY tenuous connection.

1. The river was frozen.

2. An hourglass, with thousands of grains of sand.

3. Take the first letter of each word and place it at the end. It will spell the same word backwards.

4. It contains each number, zero through nine, in alphabetical order.

5. Push the cork down into the bottle. Then shake the coin out.

6. Both boxers are female.

7. The person was born in 2005 B.C.

8. The man is playing Monopoly. He lands on a property with a hotel and doesn’t have enough money to pay the rent.

9. All three words are pronounced differently when the first letter is capitalized.

10. Turn on the right switch and leave it on for two minutes. After two minutes, turn on the middle switch and leave it on for one minute. When that minute is up, turn off both switches and enter the room. One light bulb will be hot (1st switch) and one will be warm (2nd switch). The cold bulb will correspond to the switch you didn’t turn on.
