Three Easy Questions

The object of this contest was to answer three easy questions, which had been partially encoded to make them less easy. Each question used a different code. Winners were chosen at random from among entries with three correct answers.

Question #1

1-9-O 28-2-S 10-9-34 13-I-38-12-34-34-37-33-19 11-26-34-S-I-D-34-37-27

O-38 33-29-34 U-37-I-12-34-D S-10-6-33-34-S?

Question #2

42-50-22-16 35-49-8 28-50-E 18-48-40-16 45.8. 40-16-25-28-E

22-1-23-43-16-28-E-1 28-17 16-50-E 45-37-21-33-9?

Question #3

74-1-85 9-95-8-92-16 16-92-15-E-45-E-R-8 7-95-E-D 17-18-19

74-33 5-8-86 8-7 90-E 15-57-10-T 36-39-78-8-7?


The deciphered questions (and how the codes work) are as follows:

1. WHO WAS THE FIFTEENTH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?
2. WHAT WAS THE LAST STATE ADMITTED TO THE UNION?
3. W-H-At F-Am-O-U-S S-U-P-E-Rh-E-R-O N-Am-E-D Cl-Ar-K
W-As B-O-Rn O-N Th-E P-La-Ne-T Kr-Y-Pt-O-N?

In the first code, each number indicates the order in which a particular U.S. president served; substitute the first letter of the president’s last name for the number. In the second code, each number indicates the order of admission of a particular state; substitute the first letter of the name of the state. In the final code, each number is an atomic number that should be replaced by its element’s one- or two-letter symbol.

The answers to the questions are:

1. James Buchanan
2. Hawaii
3. Superman
