• 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))

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

• 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'?
