The puzzle question is : On Bagshot Island, there is an airport. The airport is the homebase of an unlimited number of identical airplanes. Each airplane has a fuel capacity to allow it to fly exactly 1/2 way around the world, along a great circle. The planes have the ability to refuel in flight without loss of speed or spillage of fuel. Though the fuel is unlimited, the island is the only source of fuel.

What is the fewest number of aircraft necessary to get one plane all the way around the world assuming that all of the aircraft must return safely to the airport? How did you get to your answer?

Notes:

(a) Each airplane must depart and return to the same airport, and that is the only airport they can land and refuel on ground.

(b) Each airplane must have enough fuel to return to airport.

(c) The time and fuel consumption of refueling can be ignored. (so we can also assume that one airplane can refuel more than one airplanes in air at the same time.)

(d) The amount of fuel airplanes carrying can be zero as long as the other airplane is refueling these airplanes. What is the fewest number of airplanes and number of tanks of fuel needed to accomplish this work? (we only need airplane to go around the world)

You are given a set of scales and 12 marbles. The scales are of the old balance variety. That is, a small dish hangs from each end of a rod that is balanced in the middle. The device enables you to conclude either that the contents of the dishes weigh the same or that the dish that falls lower has heavier contents than the other.

The 12 marbles appear to be identical. In fact, 11 of them are identical, and one is of a different weight. Your task is to identify the unusual marble and discard it. You are allowed to use the scales three times if you wish, but no more.

Note that the unusual marble may be heavier or lighter than the others. You are asked to both identify it and determine whether it is heavy or light.

A non-stop marathon

The oldest one is fat and short

And trudges slowly on

The middle brother's tall and slim

And keeps a steady pace

The youngest runs just like the wind,

Speeding through the race

He's young in years, we let him run,

The other brothers say

'Cause though he's surely number one,

He's second, in a way.

Nisha was sitting at her study table, alone , on a dark night. Her parents had taken a flight earlier in the morning to chelsea as her grandfather had passed away.

she was alone because she need to study for her exam tomorrow.

While studying , she heard a noise and got out of her room and looked around when suddenly, without warning, she was grabbed by the neck.

She tried to free herself but was of no use.

"Give me all your money!" shouted the man who had grabbed her from behind.

Nisha cried "leave me ...there is no one at home"

Suddenly the phone rang.

Nisha asked the intruder to allow her to pick the phone as people will get alarmed if she dosn't pick the phone.

"Alright, but dont try to be clever" replied the intruder.

Nisha walked toward the phone.She picked up the phone.

"Hey nisha How's the revision going?" said the caller. "Hey prinks thanks for the call. Hey you know those Science notes I lent you last week? Well I really need them back. It would be a great help to me. It's an emergency, so if you could give me them tomorrow it would be great. Please hurry in finding the notes. I need to get back to my books now. Bye," Nisha said. She hung up the phone.

"It was wise of you not to say anything," said the intruder.

"Now TELL ME WHERE THE MONEY IS KEPT!" screamed the thief.

"It...it's...in my dad's room. The first room on the right. Third drawer," said Nisha.

"SHOW me!" said the man, and removed his grip around her neck. She took a big gulp of air and nearly fell. She swallowed hard and said a silent prayer. She walked slowly, in silence, toward her father's room. All of a sudden, they heard police sirens. The intruder froze in his footsteps. He ran to the nearest window and jumped out of it.

Nisha ran outside in time to see the intruder being escorted into the car. She saw prinks and she ran toward her and hugged her.

"Smart kids," said the policeman.

What had happened?

There were once 3 brothers, one day on the way to their grandmothers funeral their car broke down.

Oh great, they all thought, and tried to fix the car but finally decided they had no idea what they were doing.

The middle and youngest brother teamed up and forced the eldest to walk in search of a house where they could use a telephone to call a local tow truck.

They were literally stranded out in the middle of nowhere-the landscape was barren and nondescript.

The eldest brother walked for ages until suddenly he appeared before a large victorian home. Everything was pink.

Thinking that this was a little strange, the brother peered down the road for possible neighbors, but he could see nothing at all.

The picket fence lining the yard was pink, as was the gate. The path to the house was pink, the porch was pink. The door was pink. The shudders were pink. EVERYTHING was pink.

He opened up the fence gate which screeched "Piiiinnnkkk!!" as he walked the path his footsteps barked "Pi-Pink Pi-Pink P-Pink!!". As he walked the porch steps they groaned "PPPink PPPink PPPink!!"

Finally, with many "Pink" statements he made it to the door and knocked loudly, the door shouted back "PINK PINK"

He waited a minute or two but no one answered the door. He decided it was best to go inside anway, they still needed to make a phone call. He grabbed the doorknob and turned it- it whispered softly "ppinkkk".

He shouted into the home "Hello? Im just here to use your phone!"

When he looked around the home, once again everything was pink. Pink furniture, Pink carpeting, Pink drapes, Pink walls.

He figured the phone was in the kitchen so he walked in there, pink tile, pink cupboards, pink fridge, pink everything.

He heard his stomach growl and decided to steal some food, plus the phone call could wait. When he opened the pantry there sat Raisin Brand and Frosted Flakes. He chose the Frosted Flakes and ate it happily.

Back at the stranded car, the two brothers became angry, they both decided to search for their brother and for a phone. They walked for what seemed hours and soon discovered the giant pink house and figured their brother had gone there, as there was no other neighbors.

The picket fence lining the yard was pink, as was the gate. The path to the house was pink, the porch was pink. The door was pink. The shudders were pink. EVERYTHING was pink.

They opened up the fence gate which screeched "Piiiinnnkkk!!" as they walked the path their footsteps barked "Pi-Pink Pi-Pink P-Pink!!". As they walked the porch steps they groaned "PPPink PPPink PPPink!!"

Finally, with many "Pink" statements they made it to the door and knocked loudly, the door shouted back "PINK PINK"

They waited a minute or two but no one answered the door. They decided it was best to go inside anway, they still needed to make a phone call. One brother grabbed the doorknob and turned it- it whispered softly "ppinkkk".

The other brother shouted into the home "Hello? We're just here to use your phone!"

When they looked around the home, once again everything was pink. Pink furniture, Pink carpeting, Pink drapes, Pink walls.

They figured the phone was in the kitchen so they walked in there, pink tile, pink cupboards, pink fridge, pink everything.

The brothers both heard their stomachs growl and decided to steal some food, plus the phone call could wait. When they opened the pantry there sat Raisin Brand and Frosted Flakes. Both of them chose the Raisin Brand at ate it happily.

They waited some time for their brother to show up, but he was strangely missing. The two brothers decided he had gotten a ride, so they used the phone to call a tow truck which took the two of them to their grandmothers funeral.

Still they saw no sign of their brother, and never did again after that day.

Whats the moral of the story??

*HINT* the house wasn't their grandmothers, and the eldest brother wasnt brutally murdered or anything like that.
