Cant get 4 or 8.

I'm thinking of getting the GCHQ Puzzle Book published for charity last year, 368 pages to go at in that one. :confused:

PanBiker, I haven't looked at your answers yet I'll leave it until more come in. These puzzles have been in a safe place for over five years from what I can remember there were usually two answers... Theirs! and Mine?? Funny enough No 4 gave me some trouble until the penny dropped.

I think I must be an oddball. Puzzles like these have no attraction for me. I can go in the shed and attack real puzzles in three dimensions.... I get my brain Gym from the shed, writing and playing Solitaire!

I'm not 100% sure but I think it was Harold Macmillan who said he never did puzzles because there were enough problems in the real world that need solving.
