And after that embarrasing question.^^^^^^^



Let's say in a lottery Samuel have a 4% chance of winning the jackpot.

All lined up and 1st four people on the line lose. Samuel is 5th in the row.

What's the chance of Samuel winning now?

Anne was found dead in the central park of London.
There are six suspects "hazard", "Costa", "Pedro", "Willian", "Terry" and "courtois".

Anne has written the murdered name in cipher on the floor as "dqvxf".

Police were unable to solve the mystery so they called Sherlock.
After a minute, Sherlock was able to decipher the cipher and ask the police to capture the murderer.

Who is the murderer?

corresponding character in the cipher code

Murder. Two glasses indicates there were two people in the room and the crutches indicate that the victim would not have been able to climb on the chair.

Murder.

Explanation:
1. There are signs of the struggle in the room as the clock is broken.

2. Two water glasses in the room indicate the presence of two people which also suggest that the killer is known to the victim.

3. There are a book and a pen on the bed which indicates that the dead person was reading and a suicide note was written from another pen which seems to be planted.

4. The man crutches are too far from the man.

I'm not sure if 6 and 9 would be classed as 'mirror images' though I can see what you're thinking.

D) The second digit is half the third.

A bit of suspect maths there mon ami.

Surely 0 4 8 8, that's assuming you are closer to the answer than me.
