will we use binomial distribution .. like ,here the answer should be
(1/2)^25 ( 25c13 plus 25c14 plus 25c15 plus … 25c25)

2. That is definitely one possible approach, Girish.

jill is having the first move in the first question then how can jill assure jacks move ?

• Pragdeesh, your questions show that you are just reading superficially and not thinking about it. I purposely give minimalistic solutions – if I spoon-feed the entire detail, then the whole point is lost as my readers will not learn how to think but only how to solve that one specific question (which might never appear again). If you’re serious about learning how to bell the CAT, then please try to understand the solution given, applying your mind carefully, rather than immediately giving up and asking for a solution..

4. Hi J,
Where can I find the puzzle questions? All I can find in the puzzle section are the solutions to various puzzles.

• At the end of the previous post! The idea was that people should have a chance to solve the problem before the answer was revealed…
