Quiz#2 
Unlock the code

The top number minus the bottom left- hand number is multiplied by the bottom right-hand number to give the number inside the triangle.

So, the answer would be '3'.

Quiz#3 
Pattern picker

The top pair is rotated 180 degrees, so doing the same to the second pair results in pattern A.

So, the answer would be 'A'.

Quiz#4
Word scramble

How did you go deciphering these place names?

Paris
Athens
Auckland

Quiz#5 
Stick trick

The answer is not to leave ten lines, but to leave the word ‘ten’ spelt out! Achieve this by removing the left, bottom and right lines on the left, the right-most line in the middle and the top and bottom lines on the right - leaving ‘t’, ’e’ and ‘n’.
