Shall we date?: Guard me, Sherlock! - Quiz Time!


Fill in the blank with the correct letter.

The answers to choose are:

Right answer is: M
The clues are that there are 7 letters. These letters represent the days of the week. It starts with Monday, then Tuesday... _TWTFSS are the first letters of the days of the week. And since the first letter in Monday goes in the blank, that means that "M" is the correct answer.


Sherlock's Route
(*Note: Special Thanks to Yashi for that quiz!)

Mycroft Holmes:
"All of us sat together and ate some of Lucci &Mason's absolutely exquisite biscotti.
Read what each person says below, and use the information they give you to guess how many pieces of biscotti I ate."

Mycroft Holmes:
"I ate 5 fewer pieces than Lestrade."

Hercule Poirot:
"I only ate one third the number that Jeremy ate."

Jeremy Cassel:
"I ate 4 more pieces than Lestrade."

George Lestrade:
"I ate twice as many as Poirot did."

The answers to choose are:

Right answer is: Three


Watson's Route

Sherlock Holmes
" Steven Jerram went on a trip to photograph different international locations. The trip took him through the U.S. and then to Japan.
The final flight of his trip was from Honolulu Airport in Hawaii to Narita Airport in Japan.
On the 70th day of his trip, he flew out of Hawaii at 10AM, and landed in Japan in the evening.
He flew out of London Heathrow Airpost on the first day of his trip, which was December 1st. When he finally reached Narita Airport in Japan, it was February.
So, what was th precise date of his arrival at Narita Airport?

The answers to choose are:
February 7th
February 8th
February 9th

Right answer is: February 9th!

(If you start at December 1st and count 70 days from there, it would be February 8th.
But something doesn't feel right. The flight would be from Honolulu Airport to Narita Airport in Japan?
...!! That's it! He'd cross the International Date Line on the way, so...) 

"I've got it! The answer is February 9th, isn't it?"


Jeremy Cassel:
"There are five bags, numbered 1 to 5, each containing 10 diamonds.
However, apparently one of the bags contains only fake diamonds, which weigh less than the real ones.
Each real diamond weighs 1 ounce, but each fake diamond is 0.1 ounces lighter than a real one.
Using a scale that has a weight limit of 20 ounces, you want to figure out which bag holds the fake diamonds.
What is the fewest number of times you would have to use the scale in order to do this?"

The answers to choose are:
1 time
5 times
10 times

Right answer is: 1 time.

"You can figure out which bag has the fakes by using the scale 1 time."

John H Watson:
"1 time? Do you mean by putting all the bags on the scale together, but gradually adding them one-by-one?
Wait, no. Even if you did that, all of the bags together would end up weighing more than 20 ounces, which is the scale's limit. So I guess that wouldn't work."
 Jeremy Cassel:
"How could you tell hom much each bag weighs if you only use the scale 1 time?"

"Easy. Open each bag, and depending on what numer bag it is, take out that many diamonds. So you'd take out 1 diamond from bag1, 2 from bag 2, and so on...
You's end up with 15 diamaonds total. If there weren't any fakes, that should weigh 15 ounces. But each fake diamond is 0.1 ounce lighter than a real one, right?
If you put all 15 of these diamonds on the scale at once, you can see how much under 15 ounces it weighs, and that will tell you how many fakes are on the scale.
However many tenths of an ounce below 15 would tell you which bag held the fakes. For instance, if you're 0,4 ounces short, that would mean the fakes are in bag 4. Get it?"


Sherlock Holmes:
"There are three people, who we'll call A, B, and C.
One of these people is an angel, one of them is a demon, and one of them is human.
However, there's no way to tell which is which just by looking at them.
The angel always tells the truth, no matter what. The demon always lies, no matter what. And the human does what he feels like doing - sometimes he lies, and sometimes he tells the truth.
This is what the three of them say to you:

"I'm  not an angel."

"I'm not a demon."

"I'm not human."

Sherlock Holmes:
"So, who is the angel, who is the demon, and who is the human?"

The answers to choose are:
A is the demon, B is the angel, C is the human
A is the human, B is the demon, C is the angel
A is the human, B is the angel, C is the demon

Right answer is:

"I think A is the human, and B is the demon, right? and then C would be the angel."
Why? Because the demon always lies, so he has to say: "I'm not a demon.", which means he is B and thus A has to be the human and C the angel.
Sherlock Holmes:
 "I am investigating a theft, and I believe that it was perpetrated by a single individual. It had to be either Mr. K, Mr. M, or Mr. N.
However, these three have a set of rules they always follow when they are going to steal something, and which will not break because they believe it would be bad luck to do so.
- Whenever K is going to steal something, he always gets M to help him.
- If M isn't commiting a theft at a given moment, then N won't commit a theft either.
On the day in which the crime I'm investigating occurred, there were no other instances of theft.
Which one of these men is the perpetrator?"

The answers to choose are:
Mr. K
Mr. M
Mr. N

Right answer is: Mr. M

"Hehe, that's easy. The perpetrator is Mr. M.
K always gets M to help him, so he couldn't have done it, since the theft was committed by a single individual...
When M isn't committing a theft, N won't commit one either. But that doesn't mean that if M steals something, N will always so the same, does it?
So M is the only one who could have done it.

John H Watson:
"I see, It's easy to mistakenly think that M and N always do the same thing... either they don't steal anything, or they both steal something. But that's wrong...
N won't steal anything unless M is also stealing something that day. So I guess that means that M is the only one who could've commited that crime on his own."

Sherlock Holmes:
"A village with 40 eligible voters is going to have an election to decide who their mayor will be.
Three people are running in the election, all of whom dislike each other. All three of them are residents of the village.
In the election, the candidate who receives the most votes wins. Every eligible voter gets one vote each.
Assuming  that all of them vote, and all of their voters are counted properly with no errors, how many votes would a candidate have to receive to be assured of winning the election?"

The answers to choose are:

Right answer is: 20

Mikah Hudson: 
"Come on... that's easy. It's 20, right?"

Sherlock Holmes: 
"Correct. How did you arrive at your answer?"

Mikah Hudson: 
"Umm, first I figured out the number of voters once you subtracted the three candidates. 40 minus 3 is 37, right?
19 is just over half of 37. That's a bare majority. And if the candidates all dislike each other, then they're bound to vote for themselves, right?
So you add 1 to those 19 votes, which gives you 20!"


John H Watson:
"We received a note from the mystery thief informing us of his next crime.
'Tonight I am going to take a picture from the museum in London. I've chosen a single work... one of the paintings labelled 1 through 60... Choose any set of the following numbers and add them up. I promise you, the number you get won't be the number of the painting I'm going to take... 0, 1, 2, 4, 7, 15, 31... One last thing... choose any set of those numbers you like, but don't repeat the same number twice.'
So, which painting was our mysterious thief planning on stealing?"

The answers to choose are:
Number 15
Number 30
Number 60

Right answer is: 30

(It seems that in order to get the answer, all you can really do is go throug trying to add up to each number.)
(Um, I guess I can just go through the numbers that aren't already written down and see, if I can add up to those. 1+2=3, 1+4=5...)
(Out of number 1 through 60, the only one you can't arrive through additions is...)
" I know! The answer is 30, isn't it!"

John H Watson:

"That's absolutely right!"


Sherlock Holmes:
"There are two clocks, and the hands of each clock point to exactely 12:00.
Precisely one hour passes, at which point one of th clocks reads 1:01, while the other reads 12:59.
Assuming that these clocks continue to deviate from the actual time just like they did during that first hour... how many hours total will it take before they once again point to exactely the same time?

The answers to choose are:
360 hours
720 hours
They'll never point to the same time again.

Right answer is: 360 hours

(After 180 hours they'd point to 3:00 and 9:00, right? After that, the minute hand on both clocks will point to 0 every 60 hours, so... 180 + 60 more hours would put the clocks at 4:00 and 8:00. And 60 hours after that would put them at 5:00 and 7:00...)
"I've got it! The answer is 360 hours, isn't it!"

John H Watson:
"Ah, I get it. The two clocks don't have to both read 12:00, they just have to show the same time, don't they?"

"Right. After 360 hours, both of the clocks will point exactely at 6:00."


Sherlock Holmes:
"I'm driving down the road in a car, approaching a cruve, when a young boy riding a bicycle just in front of me almost falls over.
As his bicycle wobbles, several items he was carrying in the basket attached to the bike go tumbling out: first some cherries, then some apples, then some bananas.
What is the first thing I hit?"

The answers to choose are:
The carries.
The bananas.
Something else.

Right answer is: Something else.

Mikah Hudson:
"I kind of want to say 'the cherries', since those are the first item to fall out, but...
That's not it. The answer is 'something else', isn't it?"

Sherlock Holmes:
"All right then, what is the first thing you hit?"

Mikah Hudson:
"That's easy! The brakes!
After all, before you hit any of the items that fell out with your car, you'd probably hit the brakes by reflex...
And to begin with, you wouldn't necessarily hit the cherries, apples, and bananas in the order they fell out anyway, would you?!"


Mikah's Route

Mikah Hudson:
"There's a plate that has avocado, lettuce, and broccoli on it. A girl takes a pice of fruit off of the plate and eats it.
So, tell me... what did the girl eat?"

(So the girl ate a piece of fruit, and he wants to know what it was...?)

The answers to choose are:

Right answer is: Avocado

"I know! It was an avocado, wasn't it?"

Mikah Hudson:
"Correct. A fruit is a seed-bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant, whereas vegetables are all other plant parts, such as roots, leaves and stems."

"Yep. Scientifically speaking, out of everything on the tray, only the avocados are actually fruit. The lettuce and broccoli are vegetables."


Olivia Ruth:
"There was once a king who ordered two of his retainers to have a race. 'I want the two of you to race on horseback. The owner of the winning horse will be rewarded.'
'However, in this race the horse that crosses the finish line LAST will be declared the winner.' Given the king's order, neither of his retainers wanted to cross the finish line.
So then, how could you make it so that both retainers would want to cross the finish line first?"

The answers to choose are:
Make whoever finishes first the winner.
Make the horses race without riders.
Have them trade horses with each other.

Right answer is: Have them trade horses with each other.

"I know! You could just have them trade horses with each other, right?"

Olivia Ruth:
"That's right. You come across as being a bit of an airhead, but you're actually pretty smart, huh?"


James Moriarty:
"Imagine that there are three men here in front of us. One of them perpetrated a crime, one of them is a suspect in the crime, and one of them is a police detective.
The perpetrator always tells the truth, the suspect always lies, and the detective sometimes tells the truth and lies sometimes.
The men wearing glasses says 'I'm not the perpetrator.' 
The men in the suit says 'I'm not the detective.' 
The men with blue eyes says 'I'm not the suspect.'.  
So then, which of these three is the perpetrator?"

The answers to choose are:
The man wearing glasses.
The man in the suit.
The mn with blue eyes.
Right answer is: The man in the suit.

"I know! The perpetrator is the man in the suit, isn't it!"

Mikah Hudson:
"Yeah, I think so, too. The only person who can say 'I'm not the perpetrator.' is the detective. If the perpetrator himself said that, it would be a lie."

"Also, the perpetrator and the detective are the only two who'd say 'I'm not the detective'. Since the man wearing glasses is the detective, the man in the suit is the perpetrator."


John H. Watson:
"There are nine rooms arranged in a 3x3 grid, and you are in the room in the center. You see a piece of paper on the floor at your feet.
It reads 'proceed forward from here following this set of direction: 4862248'. If you move according the direction on the piece of paper, what room do you end up in?"

The answers to choose are:
The room above where you started
The room to the right of where you started
The room to the left of where you started

Right answer is: The room to the left of where you started MC:
"I know! You'd end up in the room to the left of where you started, wouldn't you!"

John H Watson:
"The room to the left? Really?"

"Yep, that's where you'd end up. The numbers correspond to their position on a numeric keypad. In other words, 2 is down, 4 is left, 6 is right, and 8 up.
So if you begin in the center of a 3x3 grid of rooms and move according to the directions represented by the numbers, you'll end up in the room to the left of where you started."

Sherlock Holmes:
"Well done, MC. I submitted that quiz confident that it was quite difficult, but it seems it was too easy for you."


"'A bacterium that divides once per minute is put into a cup. Every minute, that amount of bacteria doubles. After exactely one hour, the bacteria fills the entire cup.'
'How many minutes did it take for the bacteria to fill half of the cup?'"

The answers to choose are:
30 minutes
46 minutes
59 minutes

Right answer is: 59 minutes

"If the amount of bacteria doubles once per minute, then it should fill the cup one minute before the hour marks, shouldn't it. The answer is 59 minutes!"


Jack Stillman
"4963=2, 7321=0, 8317=2, 5901=2, 2900=3, 1655=1, 6968=5, 2713=0
Now, see if you know the answer to this: 7981933=?"

The answers to choose are:

Right answer is: 4
"I know! The answer is 4!"

Mikah Hudson:
"Ah, I get it. I'm guessing this is about...
Yep, it's about how many circles each number contains. The number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7 don't contain any circles, so they count as '0'.
6 and 9 both contain one circle, so I guess it counts as '2'."

"In all, the number 7981933 contains 4 circles. I'm right, aren't I?"


Mikah Hudson:
"I want to know whether or not it's going to rain tomorrow, so I decide to ask three different weather forecasters for their predictions.
 Here is what the three of them have to say to me...
The forecaster wearing glasses says 'my forecasts are correct 70% of the time.'
The forecaster with the black hair says 'my forecasts are correct 50% of the time.'
Finally, the young forecaster says 'my forecasts are only correct 20% of the time.'
So, which forecaster should I ask if I want to have the best chance of knowing whether or not it will rain tomorrow?"

The answers to choose are:
The forecaster wearing glasses
The forecaster with the black hair
The young forecaster

Right answer is: The young forecaster

"I know!" The correct answer is the young forecaster. After all, if his forecast is wrong 80% of the time, and he predicts rain, then you can assume that it WON'T rain."

Mikah Hudson:
"That's correct! Nice going, <MC>! I'm proud to have someone like you as my girlfriend."
