    #4 The waiter. When the meal arrives, the waiter is serving oysters, but claiming they are escargots.

    You are probably correct. Except the restaurant is serving a special creation by a master chef today... Escargots stewed in oyster shells with citrus dressing.

    Which #4 is correct? I cant see why the waiter is correct - just because he calls the oysters, snails. Likewise if its the girl in pink, what is the logic?

    Those clams/oysters should not be escargots - the waiter is obviously a phony

    #4 Escargot is a French dish of cooked snails.

    Answer to # 12 : Use the wrench to remove car tyre tubes and tie them to the bag of coins with the rope.

    A real waiter would not make such an elementary mistake, therefore he cannot be a real waiter, and can only be bank robber. Gotta think like a 9yo :eek:

    #11. It's a bit tenuous but....

    The only one actually in pain is the croc. The rest are there for routine appointments.

    The implication is that in opening the remaining box that he knows for sure doesnt have the pardon, the other remaining box does contain the pardon, so switching boxes would appear to increase the chance of freedom!

    That wasn't implied. The two boxes that you don't pick will either have one containing the pardon or none containing the pardon. So there will always be at least one of those two that doesn't contain the pardon. The judge opens one of the two that HE knows doesn't contain the pardon and shows you it. The other may or may not contain the pardon as is also the case for the one you pointed to.

    If what you said was the implication was correct, then it would mean that you would never point initially to the right box, which is not the case.

    Yes, both balls are even in number, ie 4 red 2 blue, then you will end up with a red ball. both uneven you will end up with a blue ball, if one colour is uneven and one even, you will end up with the ball that is the same colour as the balls of the uneven number. ( so if 3 red, 2 blue you will end up with 1 red ball)

    I think you misunderstand what i said - and I cant understand what you are saying now!

    The judge knows the contents of all the boxes.

    He knows the box he opens doesnt contain the pardon. Given that we already knew that he knows the contents of all the boxes that implies that the other unopened box contains the pardon in this case.

    It doesnt mean i cant pick the box with the pardon, just that i didnt this time.

    If you think the answer is that it doenst improve my chance of freedom by choosing the remaining box, then i struggle to see the point of the puzzle. Obviously if the judges actions provide no new information then its 50/50 which box the pardon is in.

    (maybe this one is just a really basic and simple puzzle and i am overthinking it??!!)
