You and your friends decide to have a pizza. Upon reading the menu, you find out that you have to pay a specific amount to add additional toppings. Following are the prices:
Olives & Black Pepper $7
Red Pepper & Jalapeno $6
Pineapple & Capsicum $2
Corn & Black Pepper $5
Mushrooms & Pineapple $4
Capsicum & Corn $3
Jalapeno & Pineapple $5
Now, you can see that the prices are given in pair. Can you find out the price of each topping separately if you know that the prices are not in fractions and are an increment of a full dollar?
As we have been informed that the prices are a full dollar increment, this eases out the situation.
If we look at the price of pineapple and capsicum, we can easily make out that both of them are priced $1.
This is because the price has to be at least $1 and since both of them costs $2 together, they must cost $1 separately.
Solving the rest of the question is child’s play. You have to use simple mathematics.
For an instance:
Jalapeno + Pineapple = $5
Now, we know that pineapple costs $1. Thus,
Jalapeno + $1 = $5
Jalapeno = $4
You can find out the price for each one of the toppings in a similar fashion.
Red Pepper $2
Black Pepper $3
100 cowboys are standing in a circle and are numbered from number 1 to 100. A deadly game is created in which the first person will shoot the next person (i.e.second person) and then need to pass the gun to the next person (i.e. Third person) and he will shoot the person to the next. This game will continue until one cowboy stays alive.
Michelangelo is being chased by a couple of cannibals who will kill him as soon as they get a hold of him.

Create a number using only the digits 4,4,3,3,2,2,1 and 1. So i can only be eight digits. You have to make sure the ones are separated by one digit, the twos are separated by two digits the threes are separated with three digits and the fours are separated by four digits
The number of decks is absolutely not relevant here which means whether we mix 5 or 500 cards still results would be same.
Any card drawn will be a Ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen or King, so there are 13 possibilities each time a card is drawn.
If you are lucky just 5 cards of the same kind can be obtained in 4 steps
The unluckiest(worst) way is our solution as we need to guarantee a four of a kind.
Draw 3 of each kind =>now we have 39 cards. Next card will guarantee 4 of a kind.
