How many trips would it take to figure out how far the coconuts can fall without breaking?

#4. You have 8 batteries (4 charged, 4 uncharged) and a flashlight which needs 2 to work. You do not know which batteries are charged and which ones are uncharged.

What is the least number of attempts to make the flashlight work?

#3. An intelligent trader travels from one place to another with 3 sacks having 30 coconuts each. No sack can hold more than 30 coconuts. On the way, he passes 30 check points. At each check point, he has to give one coconut for every sack he is carrying. What is the maximum number of coconuts that he can have with him at the end of his journey?

#2. Three spies, suspected as double agents, speak as follows when questioned: Albert: “Bertie is a mole.” Bertie: “Cedric is a mole.” Cedric: “Bertie is lying.”

#1. Bill, Ken and Mark are, not necessarily in this order, a quarterback, a receiver, and a kicker. The kicker, who is the shortest of the three, is a bachelor. Bill, who is Ken’s father-in-law, is taller than the receiver.
