Hi, does anybody know where I can find practice computer science puzzles and riddles? Like you know, logical riddles but not of the "which person was the murderer" type but more of the problem-solving type. Would be best if it was free and online.

I am entering a competition this week, so that's why

If you're looking for coding puzzles, the British Informatics Olympiad papers should give you some challenge, https://www.olympiad.org.uk/problems.html lots of computing problems here.

If you're also looking to improve problem solving in general, look at senior maths challenges questions 20-25 (http://vle.woodhouse.ac.uk/topicdocs/maths/smchome.htm) and British Math Olympiad and Senior Kangaroo Papers (google can find these)

If you exhaust both of those resources then:
1) For more coding problems, use leetcode, topcoder, codeforces etc etc
2) For more maths puzzle/problem solving questions use AOPS website for their contest collections
3) If you want a good mix of both, use project euler (https://projecteuler.net/)

Try Looking up CTF (Capture the Flag) challenges. These are frequent and there should be several free ones on the internet to try out
