    This question was in a Chinese primary school exam. On average a child would answer it in 20 seconds while adults took a lot longer. Will disclose answer soon. For the record I was not able to get it :Frown:

    The numbers are upside down, so from right to left they read 86, x , 88, 89, 90, 91. Read the right way around, the missing parking space is 87

    Whats my prize?

    That lasted 12 minutes! Did that just come to you as you saw it?

    I just kept on looking for patterns before giving in

    Your choice of prizes are :rasta: ,:Drinks: or :Icecream:

    i enjoy number puzzles, left to right didnt make sense, there were no number sequences, so there needed to be a logical solution. The trick with number puzzles is not to over complicate them.

    Oh, I am terrible at maths, but I like teasers and working out connections between things

    ^^ The first one - and I am usually terrible at this sort of thing - I looked at this morning and got it immediately. Mind you, I have been on a week long course teaching me how to "think" differently, so it seems that had more impact than I thought...:Laughing:

    ^^...but clearly not THAT much impact, as I can't see the second one at all @Nighthawk :shock:

    Is it option "D"?

    It's D

    The numbers rotate and lose the smallest number

    I worked it out because of the relationship between the 8 and 9 initially. That stood out as a pattern.
