• A dead body is found at the bottom of a multi-storey building. Seeing the position of the body, it is evident that the person jumped from one of the floors, committing suicide.
A detective, Sherlock Holmes is called to look after the case.
He goes to the first floor and walks in the room facing the direction in which the body was found. He opens the window in that direction and flips a coin towards the floor. Then he goes to the second floor and repeats the process. He keeps on doing this until he reaches the last floor.
Then, when he climbs down he tells the team that it is a murder not suicide.

• A crime has been committed at Freemont Street. The main suspect is a man named Sean Baker. It was said that a man had been walking along the pathway when he was suddenly shot in the stomach.
The suspect had brown hair, blue eyes and wore a baggy Armani suit just like Sean Baker’s. Sean was asked to tell the story right from the beginning. “Well,” said Sean, “I was just hanging around the park when I saw this man walking along the pathway. Suddenly, a guy came up from behind him and shot him! I ran home as fast as I could.” The policemen asked him to give a description of the murderer. “He had a red moustache, red hair and a baggy Armani suit on.” “I think this man is telling a lie,” said one of the policemen.

• I am the beginning of sorrow, and the end of sickness.
You cannot express happiness without me,
yet I am in the midst of crosses.
I am always in risk, yet never in danger.
You may find me in the sun,
but I am never out of darkness.

• 500 at the beginning, 500 at the end,
5 in the middle is seen,
The first of all letters, the first of all figures
Take up their stations between,
String them all together, and you will see
The name of an ancient king.
