    Alphablocks

    1#

    KT has a set of four alphabet blocks. Each side of these blocks is printed with a different letter, making 24 in total. KT notices that by rearranging the blocks, she can spell each of the following words:

    BOXY, BUCK, CHAW, DIGS, EXAM, FLIT,
    GIRL, JUMP, OGRE, OKAY, PAWN, ZEST

    Which letters are on each block?

    A boy leaves home in the morning to go to school. At the moment he leaves the house he looks at the clock in the mirror. The clock has no number indication and for this reason the boy makes a mistake in interpreting the time (mirror-image). Just assuming the clock must be out of order, the boy cycles to school, where he arrives after twenty minutes. At that moment the clock at school shows a time that is two and a half hours later than the time that the boy saw on the clock at home.

    What time did he arrive at school?

    Well done KT. I thought this one might prove to be a little more challenging.
