    Hello Sanjeeb,
    These questions are really hard and I have think many times and could even find the right answer.

    As per me the Answers will be:
    Puzzle 1 -- 5 > 9
    Puzzle 2 -- (Root of (8 x 8)) x (Root of (3 x 3))

    If these answers are wrong then please let us know the right answers.
    Thanks.

    Hi Snehasish,

    Its great that you tried the questions. The answer of the first question is not clear to me but the answer of the second question is correct, although there are other answers too.

    The answers are as follows :-
    Puzzle 1 :- The mathematical symbol that can be put between 5 and 9, to get a number bigger than 5 and smaller than 9 is a decimal i.e, 5.9

    Puzzle 2 :- 8/(3-8/3)
    = 8/(1/3)
    = 24

    Regards

    Thanks for sharing the Correct Answers. Feeling great that atleast I achived 50% mark by answering one right answer.

    1st one is very Tricky. I never thought of putting a '.' symbol. My Answer was 5 > 9 (Greater Than Sign) which also outputs number greater than 5 and lower than 9.

    Are you Bengali? If yes then can you share a small article on 'Jamai Sasthi'?

    Hello Sanjeeb Ganguly,

    @ Solution of Puzzle 1 :- The mathematical symbol that can be put between 5 and 9, to get a number bigger than 5 and smaller than 9 is a decimal i.e, 5.9

    Doubt: (.) POINT is not a mathematical symbol, symbol can be +,-,*,/.

    Thanks For the puzzle, if this is funny one then i like it.

    Hello Ravi,

    Thanks for the response. You are correct that pont is not a mathematical symbol but decimal is purely a mathematical. I think that I am able to clear your confusion.
