With a marker label each bag from 1 to 5. Take 1 bead from bag 1 and 2 beads from bag 2 right through to 5 beads from bag 5. Weigh the 15 beads you have now collected. If they weigh 150 grams then all the bags would have contained 10g beads (Not Possible as one contains 9 gram beads). If the 15 beads weigh 149 grams then its bag 1 containing the 9 gram beads. 148 and its bag 2 etc through to 145 if it's bag 5.

I'd love to say I worked it out but in truth I remembered it from some works test I did in the dim distant past.

An esy one.

There was this magician who was playing some smart tricks on the road side. One boy went to him and the man said to the boy, "I will just touch your forehead and write your actual name on this paper. If I am wrong then I will give you some of my magic stuffs, otherwise you have to give me 5." The boy agreed as he thought that no matter what name he writes, he will deny it. At the end, the boy was the one who lost the bet. How?

Did the magician write "your actual name" on the paper?

Nemesis picked a book off the highest shelf in her room.
On the spine she read How to Jog.
She ran out of the room and opened the book but found it had absolutely nothing to do with jogging. Explain.......

It was an Encyclopedia. The book simply carried entries of words that begin with 'HOW' to words that begin with 'JOG'.
