Having difficulty with these.
1. which of these words is the odd one out and why: Ail, angle, ice, ire, lodge, oil, rail, rain, rap, rust, or wine.
2.Mr Mean collects cigar ends and makes full cigars from them, needing 11 such ends to make a full cigar. He amassed 12345 ends last year. How many full cigars in total will this eventually enable him to smoke? Am I missing something with this one - seems too easy.

Just remember that after he takes 11 ends and makes a cigar, he can add the end of that one to the collection. So remember to keep reusing them till there are no longer 11 ends before you get your total.

@upandrunning,
Hi Upandrunning.
For question 1, I think the letter "t" holds the key.
Did you get the signpost question. Only one I'm stuck on.

@Tufdevil,
Thanks Tufdevil, I think the same as you. The answer to the signpost question is 152 S = 19 H = 8 - 19x8= 152. Thanks for your help.

@upandrunning,
Thanks for that. Hope I've avoided all the traps this time. It's a bit like QI - if the answer is obvious it's usually wrong!
You doing ok?
