I have put the numbers from 1 to 10 in three groups. Tell me, on what basis have I grouped the numbers. I shall give you a clue, but I am not sure if that would be of any help

CLUE

(1,2,6,10) RED

(4,5,9) BLUE

(3,7,8) GREEN

Character is who you are when no one is looking.

Good one ganesh! I was confused for a while.

(1,2,6,10) DOT

(4,5,9) LINE

(3,7,8) SPACE

Don't rely too heavily on that clue, or you'll get very confused.

It's mainly to show ganesh that I know.

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

Don't you mean:

(1,2,6,10) ADD

(4,5,9) PLUS

(3,7,8) TOTAL

(1,2,6,10) YES,

(4,5,9) YOUR

(3,7,8) RIGHT!

Hehe, I think it's a bit obvious now.

{1,2,6,10} -> Wordlength = Wordlength("RED")

{4,5,9} -> Wordlength = Wordlength("BLUE")

{3,7,8 } -> Wordlength = Wordlength("GREEN")

nice problem!
