__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!

__MC:__
(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...)

__MC:__
"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.

__MC:__
"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?"

__MC:__
"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:

A:

"I'm not an angel."

B:

"I'm not a demon."

C:

"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:

__MC:__
"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

__MC:__
"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:

15

20

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

__MC:__(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

__MC:__(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?"

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