    Re: What

    Strictly speaking, we don't have 'yellow' in the UK - it is defined as 'amber', but that might have made it a bit too obvious for us.....

    Re: What

    We refer to it as Amber too, so as u said, that would make the puzzle a little too obvious. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    And where I live, it's orange instead of yellow (or amber).

    The colour description may change from country to country, as long as its intended meaning remains the same...Warning...Slow down. (and for the careful drivers....Stop before red lights up!!)

    Re: What

    Your deductions are correct Tony!
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">No. 4 is actually planets (ET PLANS, characters jumbled up). Red = Mars, Blue = Earth and Yellow = Sun. Stars are also good, as you get a Blue Dwarf, Red Giant and I assume Yellow Sun? Strictly speaking, the sun is a star, eh!</span hide>

    Re: What

    The Sun is not a planet so there must be a flaw in ET's plans.

    Based on the clue...I was trying to refer to traffic lights...but as its very open to other interpretation, and after a little enlightenment, I suppose that your answer is also correct if seen in that light! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
