A lot must be lost in the translation. The grammar is sometimes difficult to understand and some of the answers don't make sense. For instance one puzzle asks which is worth more, a bucket full of crowns, or a bucket full of half crowns. The answer says that a whole bucket is worth more than a half bucket.????
