    You are required to give somebody exactly 6 pence in two coins, one of which must not be a 5p piece (or exactly 6cents in two coins, one of which must not be a nickel, if you prefer ) ) How do you do it?

    UK coinage - 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2

    US coinage - 1c, 5c, 10c, 25c

    I will post the answer once people have had chance to have a go themselves

    One is a penny (1cent), the other is a nickel.

    In US Coinage.
    I would return a 5c and a 1c coin.
    (One is not a 5c, however the other one is.)

    This is a very good example of "words have meanings" which it appears most of our politicians have forgotten.
