There are no twists. All basic puzzle types, with varying difficulty.

If so, the puzzle in the IB is wrong see the second row.

Do I need to answer the question? I think the instruction and the example match perfectly. Same in Anglers.

The IB looks perfect.
The examples and the instructions match for ABC connect and Anglers.
The instructions do not require all cells to be used.

NO, only horizontal / vertical connections allowed.

And are Os allowed to touch Hs to which they have no connection?
YES, Os can touch as many Hs.

Here is another example. Hope it makes it clear.


This example appeared as practice puzzle for NPC2007

You are right. In fact the original puzzle where every square is used exactly once has this condition, thats why I asked this questions. Thanks for your quick reply.

Hi, this might be a silly question, but where exactly can I find instruction booklet for the test? I think I have reviewed the whole Logic Masters India, including the Evergreens website and cannot see them... And a minor offtopic: is it possible to find pdf with your previous competitions?

When you go to EverGreen II website (http://logicmastersindia.com/M201009P/), on the right side of the page, Instruction Booklet is available. See image below.


For all previous competitions, you have to visit the respective pages. See this link for monthly tests and this link for mock tests.

Please post here if you still face problems.

Great, thanks. This might have sounded a silly question as I look at it now, but this was all because I use a MSI laptop with tiny screen and thus the resolution is set in such a way that I sometimes do not see things in the edges of the screen unless I scroll it:-) Thanks again and sorry for molesting anyway.

Subject: EverGreens II - Country is blank? @ 2010-09-03 12:29 PM (#1448 - in reply to #1403) (#1448) Top

Filling in Country field must before you can take this test. This is done primarily because of IPC next week.


When you visit EverGreens page, the login space will be slightly different from how it looked earlier.



If you already have country updated, you can login after filling in username and password.

But if your country is blank (i.e. you have never updated the country field earlier), you have to fill in the country field before you can start the test. Otherwise, you will get error message.



To know if your country is blank OR filled, you can visit Settings. You can update the field there too.

Based on the discussion during Broken Pieces, partial Bonus will be awarded in this test.
We'll use Ziti's formula in this test, as an experiment basis.

If all puzzles are not correct, a factor will be computed based on your score. Your time bonus will be (number of minutes saved * this factor * 8).

Factor = (Points earned - 4 * points missed) / (Total points)

In this is case, Total Points will be considered as 575.
'Points earned' will be computed with any group bonus etc.

See table below, for how much the factor will be based on the points (without group bonus)
