  1. If we turn the paper upside down,you will notice that the 6 becomes a 9. All the numbers become-
    919
    191
    919
    191
    Now make 12 by circling the numbers 1, 9, 1, 1.

  2. I also think that by turning paper we get
    919
    191
    919
    191
    Now make 12 by circling the numbers 1, 9, 1, 1...



    but sorry to say that if it is the answer......then it is not a good question....

  4. my solution was to see diagram diagonally and we get 6^1, 6^1

    since 6^1=6, we get the sum 12.

  8. Circle all four number (161, 616, 161, 616) the total numbers circled (not the product or sum of them), is 12. Hence the trick question.
