Hi ZHero,

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  - Buddha?

Hi ZHero,

Thank you.
I'm not able to solve Q1 even with the hints provided!

And wintersolstice solved Q3, not Q2

Corrected the error. Thank you gAr!
For Q1, you just need to relate it with some pattern in English alphabet.
