    Banana Clock Riddle

    Hint: 1. Look closely at the clock. 2. Number of Bananas. 3. Some thing regarding the sides of the Shapes figure.

    Logic :
    From 1st the hexagon shape has value 15.
    The shape has 15 edges(6 of hexagon,5 of Pentagon and 4 of Square)
    From 2nd we get value of one bunch of bananas is 4.
    So each banana has value of 1.
    From 3rd we get that each clock has value of 3.
    Which resembles the time on the clock which is 3.
    Hence by using these insights, we get the last required values as
    Clock = 2 (2 in the clock)
    Bananas = 3 (3 bananas in the bunch)
    Hexagon = 11 (Hexagon[6 sides] and pentagon[5 sides], so 6+5=11)
    So required value is
    2+3+33=? (Multiply first - Bodmas rule)
    5+33=38 and hence the answer is 38.

    Fighting In A Truel

    Hint: Think from the points of view of Mr. Gray and Mr. White, not just Mr. Black.
    He should shoot at the ground.

    If Mr. Black shoots the ground, it is Mr. Gray's turn. Mr. Gray would rather shoot at Mr. White than Mr. Black, because he is better. If Mr. Gray kills Mr. White, it is just Mr. Black and Mr. Gray left, giving Mr. Black a fair chance of winning. If Mr. Gray does not kill Mr. White, it is Mr. White's turn. He would rather shoot at Mr. Gray and will definitely kill him. Even though it is now Mr. Black against Mr. White, Mr. Black has a better chance of winning than before.
