Answers to Buggtastic Brain Busters

First, I want to thank all of you for trying, or at least letting me know you stopped by.
Now, the moment you have been waiting for......."drum roll please"........


1. When Jim was taking a stroll one day, he met his father-in-law’s only daughter’s mother-in-law. What did he call her?

Mom

2. Which set of numbers would most logically come next in the following sequence?
10 1 9 2 8 3 7 4 6 5 5 6 4 7 3 8 2

(a) 9 1 (b) 9 3 (c) 8 5 (d) 6 7

The correct answer is (a) 9 1. There are two series, one starting with 10 and going down one number each time, and one starting with 1 and going up one number.

3. The names of three foods are mixed up on each of the following lines. The words are given with their letters in correct order, but each word is “interlettered” with the others. Unscramble the foods.
C F H R M E U E E I A S E T T
A P E P P A R L E P L S S U M S

CHEESE, FRUIT and MEAT
APPLES, PEARS, and PLUMS

4. Grandma looked up from her rocking chair and said, “As far as I can determine, there is only one anagram of the word TRINKET. What is it?”

KNITTER

5. Homonyms are words that sound alike, though they are spelled differently. (Example: to, two, too) One pair of homonyms has meanings that are precisely opposite, and need not be stretched. What are the two spellings of this homonym?

RAISE and RAZE, which mean “to erect” and “to tear down.”

Good job everyone!

Cya later~

Hey mojo~
Yes, you always do well.
Wait until next time when I bring the hard questions! ;)
Are you ready?
Be looking for them in the near future.
I still don't want to do word verification.

The Zombie Lama said...

I'll cheat next time too! BWAHAHAHAHA

jiggs said...

Ahh! Reading the answers to these made me blow out a neuron!

;)

Lee Ann said...

Zombie ~ at least you are honest

jiggs ~ sorry, its over now, relax! :)

Dave Morris said...

Raise/raze threw me completely off. I am posting a good one on my blog tonight, see if you can get it.

Meantime, two ways word verification can be fun:

1 - because you can make up fun phrases that match the letters and include them with your comments.

2 - uh. Same reason.

Okay, so there's only one reason. Never mind.

Lee Ann said...

Dave ~ I will be there checking it out.
I know, I am still holding out on the word verification. (not sure how long I can last with it though).

BeckEye said...

I don't think I've ever used the words "knitter" or "raze" in conversation in all my 32 years. :)

Lee Ann said...

BeckEye ~ I haven't either...maybe when we are 80 or so, huh? :)

Me said...

Hey ! Lee I've blogrolled you...hope you dont mind....

Lee Ann said...

Avik ~ Thank you, very cool!

ticharu said...

I had the answer to number one as 'Judy' but your answer is pretty good.

Lee Ann said...

Ticharu ~ Haha, you are funny!

hotboy said...

I wasn't able to understand the answers even when I had the answers. Homonym is a good word though. It had slipped my mind! Hotboy

The Husband said...

ok...enough of these brain teasers...i can't take it anymore!

Lee Ann said...

hotboy ~ That is ok, I tried to give everyone something to think about:)

Carl ~ You are now exempt from any further testing! Just as long as the next time a quiz comes around, you promise to say hi when you stop by! Deal?

Hi Lee Ann,

Thanks for the post, looking forward to more great stuff.

Hi Lee Ann,

I've seen this post before but important things are always worth reminding. After all, repetition is the mother of learning.

adhd said...

Hi Lee Ann,

After much heavy reading your blog provided just the right amount of fun. Thank you :)

mvvak said...

Hello Lee Ann,

Thank you for your informative blog, it is good to see that people are still sharing their knowledge and experience.

I am currently working on finding the latest information on kid with adhd when I came across your site. My passion is in the area of kid with adhd and after finding your blog, I believe we have a real synergy and that my subsrcibers would benefit from your perspective on the topic.

I would very much appreciate it if you would take the time to have a look at my adhdpodcaster blog. If you think that we do have a common goal (which I think we do), then please feel free to post any relevant information to the blog.

Whatever area that ties into adhd would be fine, even if it is with relation to personal development (especially time management), you know how notoriously hard it is to keep track of time especially for us :)

Anyways, really looking forward to your post.

Thank you for the blog, keep up the good work

Warmest regards,
Hoe Bing
