It is Charcoal which is black when we buy it or when not being used. It gets red in appearance when put in use means to say when burning. And eventually when it's been consumed by fire or after getting burned out or used up, changes into ashes which look grey in color.

Q:

Which number multiplied by itself will give the output as 12345678987654321 ?

Answer

11 * 11 = 121


111 * 111 = 12321


what we observe is that the square of the number follows a pattern: 2 1's gives 121. 3 1's gives 12321.


so to get 12345678987654321 we need to get square of 9 1's(111,111,111).

Q:

Logical puzzle

You work at a fruit factory.
There are 3 crates in front of you. One crate contains only apples. One crate contains only oranges. The other crate contains both apples and oranges. And each crate is labeled. One reads "apples", one reads "oranges", and one reads "apples and oranges". But the labeling machine has gone crazy and is now labeling all boxes incorrectly. If you can only take out and look at just one of the pieces of fruit from just one of the crates, how can you label ALL of the crates correctly?

Answer

Our solution:


Take a piece of fruit from the "apples and oranges" crate. If it's an apple then you know that is the "apples" crate since ALL THE CRATES ARE LABELED INCORRECTLY. This means the crate marked "apples" must be "oranges" and the crate marked "oranges" must be "apples and oranges".
