    1# What is the link shared by the following ten words?

    cookie; cosmic; cues; moose

    mummy; muse; quick

    squeaky; wages; yes

    2# Solve the riddle:

    Behead a beast, and you will find
    A larger beast is left behind.
    Behead this larger beast and then
    Instead of one, you'll find I'm ten.

    3#
    The local historical society has leased a castle to use it as
    a museum. The original lease was 99 years. I asked the
    curator how much time was left on the lease. His answer was
    as follows:

    two-thirds of the time past is equal to four-
    fifths of the time to come. How much time was left on the lease?
