    Re: Mystery Subject!

    Are we supposed to answer #1 all at once? If so, I don't know the answer <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15>
    Otherwise, the 5th one in #1 is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Shooting Star</span hide> ???

    Re: Mystery Subject!

    Thanx for pointing that out BAN...I re-numbered #1's sub-questions!

    You got (e) correct. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
    Well done! Was that a wild guess?
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Re: Mystery Subject!

    C'mon Rudi- I know I'm not the best puzzle-solver in the world, but this is a wee bit difficult. Any clues?

    Re: Mystery Subject!

    This is a sensitive issue! But here goes:

    CLUES:
    1. I'll use this statement as a clue! One clue can give the entire puzzle away
    2. Also, you have BAN's answer to (e) as another clue!
    3. Think of your childhood!
    Regards,
    Rudi

    I've extended the puzzle to prevent those famous Rudi-isms! (Hope I haven't over done it now!)

    Re: Mystery Subject!

    Presumably by Q2 you mean what do the answers have in common? If so, I would guess <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">they are all to do with things in the sky....</span hide>...?

    Re: Mystery Subject!

    Sorry, No!
    You should see the relationship when all (or at least most) of Question 1 is answered! You can't answer Q2 or Q3 if you do not fully know Q1.
