    No answers? This is an easy one compared to some of the other puzzles, riddles, etc posted in this thread.

    It's simple math. ;)

    Starting with BALL, change one letter at a time until you have the word HEAD.

    Each change leaves the other letters in their original places and must result in a proper word.

    What is the minimum number of steps required to achieve this change?

    (HINT: There is more than one way of completing this in 4 moves.)

    Question:

    Jack tells Jill, "This isn't the $5 bill you left on the the table. I found it between pages 15 and 16 of Harry Potter."

    Jill retorts, "You're lying and I can prove it." How did Jill know?

    Ummm ... because pages 15 and 16 are back to back on the same piece of paper?

    CORRECT! Harry Potter, like all other books, has odd-numbered pages on the right. Therefore, pages 15 and 16 are the front and back of a single page, and nothing could have been found between them.

    Each of these words can be split in half, and two letters can be placed in the middle to create a new six letter word.

    For example BEND can be split into BE and ND, YO can be placed in the middle to create BE + YO + ND = BEYOND.

    The four added pairs of letters, in order, spell an 8-letter word - what is that word?

    LEND
    LIAR
    THAT
    COIN

    Generous is the new word.
    LE GE ND = Legend
    LI NE AR = Linear
    TH RO AT = Throat
    CO US IN = Cousin

    Below are seven countries, whose letters have been scrambled.

    Once you have unscrambled the letters, the first letters of each of the countries can then be scrambled to make another country.

    Can you find this country?
