    #&^!*

    A#
    In the following code, each symbol stands for a one of five letters.

    ! stands for I, S, A, T, or N
    # stands for N, F, R, S, or T
    & stands for J, E, B, O, or G
    * stands for H, E, K, P, or W
    ^ stands for L, U, D, R, or I

    The five letter code word, #&^!*, can be translated into two English words that are opposites. What are the two words?

    B#

    For each number, unscramble the capitalized letters (the two groups in each number do not intermix) to form first a famous person and then a famous work or theory of theirs.

    1) LONE ROAD, known for painting PAPER SHUTTLES.
    2) ACTIONS WANE, known for the TWO HEEL FORMATIONS.
    3) HELICAL GNOME, known for painting CATHERINE FOOTMAN.
    4) SITE NINE, known for the THRIFTY EYE VIOLATOR.
    5) SUPERCONIC, known for the EITHER TOY CHRONICLE.

    C#
    Write a table that contains a row of letters and a row of numbers where you can clearly tell that A=1, B=2, C=3 etc until Z=26. Using it, decipher the clues to find a nine letter word.

    - The 2nd and 7th letters are the same and divisible by 5.
    - The 6th letter is an even number which is LESS than 13.
    - The 5th is the 1st and 6th letter's value added together.
    - The 8th letter is a prime number between 15 and 25.
    - The 3rd letter is a vowel, whose value is less than 10.
    - The 1st letter has a value 10 less than the 4th.
    - The last letter's value is equal to double the 8th and then subtract 19.
