    Name Game

    Six friends were playing a simple game. They had before them a set of 26 letter tiles (A-Z).

    Jacqueline picked out a J.
    Terence picked out a T.
    Harriett picked out an H.
    Vince picked out a V.
    Rodderick picked out an R.

    What letter did Evangelique pick out?

    I guess you're not going to allow the obvious <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">E</span hide> but I'm going to suggest it anyway, just so that I can then accuse you of doing a Rudi.

    Not correct, Stuart. I think I will be Rudi-free with this one.

    Likewise, Jerry, although I'd like to know about your logic (sort of).

    Re: Name Game

    Well my logic is this:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">If you start jacqueline at the letter a of the alphabet it ends at J

    likewise with Harriett it finishes at H and also Vince it ends at E

    Start Terence backwards from Z it ends at T, likewise for Rodderick ending at R. Do this with Evangelique and it ends at P</span hide>

    I attach a workbook with my ramblings

    There is a serious flaw in your logic but you're so close you're <img src=/S/burnup.gif border=0 alt=burnup width=31 height=31>

    It's got to be a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">k</span hide> then.
