1. ## Letter Values

1#
There is a logical reason why the letters below have been assigned a number value. What is the only letter of the alphabet that would be assigned the value of 1 according to this logic?

A = 2
B = 0
C = 2
D = 0
E = 3
F = 3
G = 2
H = 4
I = 2
J = 2
K = 4
L = 2

Ms Green, Ms White and Ms Black were taking a stroll together. "isn't it odd", said Ms Green, "that our last names match the colour of our dresses yet none of us is wearing a dress whose colour matches our actual name?"
"So what?", said the lady in black.
Give the colour of each lady's dress.
