13.This is an unusual paragraph. I’m curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!

The letter ‘e’, which is the most common letter used in the English language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.

14.( ) + ( ) + ( ) + ( ) + ( ) = 30 This is what you have for equation. The following are the numbers that you can use to fill in the brackets: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15. You can repeat the numbers if required. The resulting sum should be 30.?

There is no mention if you can use sign or not and thus the only possible way to get this is as follows: (15 – 9) + (13 – 7) + (7 – 1) + (9 – 1) + (13 – 9).If you solve inside the brackets, you will get the following equation 6 + 6 + 6 + 8 + 4.Adding all these numbers, you will get 30 which is the required sum.

15.By using only one straight line, can you make the equation correct. 5+5+5=550?

Draw a tilted line on 1st plus (+) operator, + will become 4 :-)The equation then becomes true: 545+5=550.
