    Sherlock Holmes was in his house. All of a sudden a snowball came crashing through his window, breaking it. Holmes got up and looked out the window just in time to see three kids who were brothers run around a corner. Their names were John Crimson, Mark Crimson and Paul Crimson.
    The next day Holmes got a note on his door that read '? Crimson. He broke your window.'
    Which of the brothers should Sherlock Holmes question about the incident?
    What's that "?" Doing there ? :confused:

    Did you omit the name for us to guess? So Sherlock actually knew who to question but you are hiding it from us :confused:

    67892=0
    12345=1
    11111=5
    19110=3
    11624=2
    13111=4

    Well, I read it as a multiplication, the last sequence of numbers = 0, so the whole thing must be 0
