    My brain isn't functioning today - how do you get to 1st on a passed ball? I can get to 2nd or 3rd (or home). But PB? Isn't that a dropped 3rd strike?

  6. Question #4. At noon and midnight the hour and minute hands are exactly coincident with each other. How many other times between noon and midnight do the hour and minute hands cross?

    The minute hand crosses the hour hand once a minute (espeically if you use the logic in questions 16 and 17).
