Question #14

Question #15

(a big one to finish off!)

A Japanese ship was leaving the port and on its way to open sea. The captain went to go oil some parts of the ship and took his ring off so it wouldn’t get damaged. He left it on the table next to his bunk. When he returned, it was missing. He had suspected three crew members could be guilty and asked them what they had been doing for the ten minutes that he had been gone.

The cook said, “I was in the kitchen preparing tonight’s dinner.”

The engineer said, “I was working in the engine room making sure everything was running smoothly.”

The seaman said, “I was on the mast correcting the flag because someone had attached it upside down by mistake.”

The captain immediately knew who it was. How?

Hope y'all enjoyed this sequel, feel free to comment if you think you know the answers!

Okay folks, it's been a week. Here are the official answers.

1. Halfway, after that it's walking out of the woods

2. Your Name

3. None, because once you put one in it's not empty anymore

4. Post Office

5. Alphabetically / in a dictionary

6. add ng

7. Lunch and dinner

8. A secret

9. Tom is a barber

10. Kayak or Racecar

11. 2

12. Gymnastics. The sequence is number of letters in the name.

13. 7

14. The brain

15. The seaman. On a Japanese ship, you would not be able to tell if the flag was upside down or not, because the Japanese flag looks the same either way up.

Congratulations to Iluvbread123 and Geopro for being the first to guess all the answers correctly. Also credit to MiecraftMan for guessing kayak when the others didn't.

To complete what bread hasn't answered:

3. None (it wouldn't be empty if it was full of bananas)

5. In the alphabet

7. Lunch and tea/dinner

For #12, I'm actually thinking archery, since all the previously mentioned sports have mobile elements (golf, tennis, and cricket involve hitting a ball, football is either throwing or kicking a ball, darts is throwing a dart, and badminton is hitting a birdie). Neither boxing nor gymnastics generally include such parts, but archery includes shooting an arrow.

However, I agree with all the other answers.
