Tease your Brain!

Can you get all of these brain teasers right without cheating? I couldn't! Good luck to you :)

Puzzle 1:

Can you complete the following language equations? For example 24 H in a D is 24 Hours in a Day.
366 D in a L Y
50 U S
8 S on a O
52 C in a F D
90 D in a R A
7 W of the A W
12 S of the Z
18 H on a G C 

Puzzle 2:
I start with the letter E.
I end with the letter E.
I usually contain only one letter
Yet I am not the letter E!
What am I?

Puzzle 3:
s oou oan oee, oy poinoer oepoacos eoero thord oetoer oito tho leoteo 'o'. How mony oifoeront oetoero haoe boen oepoacod?

Puzzle 4:

What is the next number in this sequence?

1 11 21 1211 111221 ==?==

Puzzle 5: 
Answer quickly. Starting with an empty barrel, which happens first?

2/3 full
1/4 empty
1/2 full
3/4 empty

Puzzle 6:

In a dictionary, the verb 'BE' is described as:
BE [verb]

first and third person singular past indicative: 
second person singular and plural and first and third person plural past indicative: 
past subjunctive: 
past participle: 
present participle: 
first person singular present indicative: 
second person singular and plural and first and third person plural present indicative: 
third person singular present indicative: 
present subjunctive: 
Therefore you can correctly say 'I am', 'she is', 'you are', etc. Is it ever grammatically correct to say 'I is'?

Puzzle 7:
During a crazy weekend of paintball, four friends were having great fun. The paint came in blue, green, yellow and red. Coincidentally, the four friends had T-shirts in those same colours. Brenda used blue paint balls. The person in the green T-shirt used yellow paint balls. James was not wearing a red T-shirt. Diane used green paint balls and wore a blue T-shirt. Simon was the only person who used paint which was the same colour as his T-shirt. Can you tell which colour paint they each used and the colour of their respective T-shirts?

Puzzle 8: 
Which word becomes longer when you remove one of its letters?

Puzzle 9:
They are three errers in this puzzle, what are they?

50 United States.
8 sides on a octagon.
52 cards in a full deck.
90 degrees in a right angle.
7 wonders of the ancient world.
12 signs of the zodiac.
18 holes on a golf course.

I got the first two...but after that I was lost. lol :P -Tyler

Puzzle 2:
An envelope.

Puzzle 3:
The answer is 15.

The paragraph should read:

As you can see, my printer replaces every third letter with the letter 'o'.
How many different letters have been replaced?

I actually figured out the sentence after reading it for a while, but somehow I counted 14. >_< -Tyler

Puzzle 4:
312211: each term describes the previous term. Therefore the missing term should be read as: three ones, two twos and one one. 

Puzzle 5:
3/4 empty: since 3/4 empty means 1/4 full.

I actually got this one right! ^_^ -Tyler

Puzzle 6:
Yes: I is the first letter of the word igloo!

Puzzle 7:
Name    Wore    Paint
Simon   red     red
Brenda  yellow  blue
James   green   yellow
Diane   blue    green

Puzzle 8: 

Puzzle 9:
1. errers [should be errors]
2. They [should be There]
3. there are only two errors

Actually, I think there are 5 errors because the comma should be a period, and the W in "what" should be capitalized. Thats 4 errors, which then makes the fifth error. Ha. I can say confusing things too, BrainBashers! -Tyler

Puzzle 10: 
Now go back and read the THIRD word in each line from the top.

Have a great Monday everyone! =)
