    Are they consecutive in the alphabet, or used consecutively? For example could they be AACCEE or would they have to be AABBCC?

    You have a jug that holds five gallons, and a jug that holds three gallons. You have no other containers, and there are no markings on the jugs. You need to obtain exactly seven gallons of water from a faucet. How can you do it?

    Second Problem: You need exactly four gallons. How do you do it?

    now puctuate the following sentence so it makes sense: that that it is is that that it is not is not is that it it is

    Good question. Consecutive in the word order, so AACCEE would be correct.

    That's one of them. The other should be easy, now.

    I would ask him how many walls their were, or what color that seems more logical of a question.

    For seven total gallons:
    Fill 5-gallon jug. Pour contents in to 3-gal.
    Dump the contents of the 3-gal. Pour the remaining contents of the 5-gal (which is 2 gallons) in to the 3-gal.
    Fill the 5-gal and you've got a total of 7 gallons. (2 in the 3-gal, and 5 in the 5-gal.)

    For four total gallons:
    Fill the 3-gal. Dump the contents in to the 5-gal.
    Fill the 3-gal again. Dump all of the contents that fit in to the 5-gal. The remainder in the 3-gal is 1 gallon.
    Dump the 5-gal. Pour the 1 gallon from the 3-gal in to the 5-gal.
    Fill the 3 gal and you've got a total of 4 gallons. (1 in the 5-gal, 3 in the 3-gal.)

    Too easy.

    A person. The times of day are metaphorical.

    The woman has three boys, three girls, and the seventh child is intersexed. OR another answer is that the seventh child works as a Bearded Lady at a circus.

    Est wins.

    Two days ago, I was 8. Next year, I'll be 11. How is this possible?

    There are two adults and two kids on one side of a river. They need to get across, but they only have one boat that will hold one adult or two children. How can both children and both adults get across?

    and the other one is bookkeepers.

    how could I be wrong on the woman with eight children one... I was SURE I was right! grumble. I personally sawed one of those kids in half. I win.
