Its very good puzzle. It is simple but still its effective to confuse peple to scratch her heads.
Here is the puzzle:
We have total 100 rs and we need to buy exactly 100 birds. The prizelist for birds is as follow:
1) 1 parrot = 5 rs
2) 1 craw = 1 rs
3) 20 sparrows = 1 rs
But you have to follow these conditions
-> you have to spent all 100 rs.
-> you have to buy exact 100 birds
-> you have to buy all three birds. That mean you cant buy any specific kind of bird. So you must have all three kind of bird when you finish the buying!!!!
Lets hit it CEans!!!!

Here is another simple puzzle for you all CEans!!!
#-> We have a box full of coins & some notes of 10Rs. The box contains the 5Rs, 1Rs, 50Paisa, 25Paisa coins. After counting all the coins, I found the following results :
1-> The quantity of 1Rs coins is three times the quantity of 5Rs coins. That means that if we have 10 coins of 5Rs than we have 30 coins of 1Rs.
2-> Similarly, the quantity of 50Paisa coins is five times the quantity of 1Rs coins. That means that if we have 30 coins of 1Rs than we have 150 coins of 50Paisa.
3-> The quantity of 25Paisa coins is seven times the quantity of 50Paisa coins.
4-> The number of 10Rs notes is 16 + the number of 5Rs coins. That means if you have 4 coins of 5Rs than we have 20 notes of 10Rs.
5-> The total amount in box is exactly 4300Rs.
---> So how many coins & notes were there in the box?
If possible than give the method of your solution.

For those who want to make a code for this puzzle, just assume the number of 5Rs coin is x. Start making a one equation, than make a code for that equation which will give the answer. This is also a hint for you all crazy CEans!!!!!

I am starting from another easy one :
A frog in the well trying to climb the wall of well. But the wall is sleepy. Every time he jumps on wall, frog climbs upto 3 feet, but due to wall is sleepy, it sleeps 1 feet. The depth of the well is 50 feet. So tell me that how many jumps will needed for frog to come out from well?
I am expecting the answer of this puzzle as fast as possible, cause it is too easy.

If it sleeps 1 feet in the sense if the effective is 2 feet it takes 25 jumps .

if the sentence means that the effective is 1 feet it takes 48 jumps.

let me know dude

23?
normally the frog can scale 48mts in 16 leaps
but since it misses 1 mt in each leap total no of mts scaled in 16 leaps is 48-16 = 33mts
its left with 17 mts more which it should cover in 5 leaps e 12 mts scaled

16+5 -21 leaps till now

we are still left with 5 mts ie 2 more leaps

23?

No durga , 48-16 = 32 firstly.
after 16 leaps it is at 32nd fet itself not at 48th so it cant get out , so it need more 18 feets to jump go it??
