100 wc week # 28

My father taught me every thing about life. He always told funny stories.Every night when he got home I would run up and hug him. We would race back..

I grew up and had a kid of my own. Dad grew older with me but his memory faded.

I came to visit him one day. I sat by his bed. He said to me you go on son you go on. He passed away a while after. I sat by his coffin …but I thought I had enough time… To say goodbye. He knows I love him that’s what matters.

Sophie knew there was something fishy about her teacher, Mr Baker. He had nervous, darting eyes, never smiled or talked about himself and never, ever mixed with the other teachers. She noticed that his bag always seemed heavy and bulging. Finding herself alone in the classroom on a gloomy winter afternoon, Sophie peered into his bag and lifted out a container with the words ‘POISON’. But when she lifted the lid, a dark hairy hand with long nails dug into her shoulder. She jolted and turned to find Mr Baker, who whispered softly, ‘Prepare to die’. Sophie screamed her last scream.

Clarify- Nothing to clarify

 

Find the big question-The big Question is How long will it take for kate to jog too pole six.

Solve-If it took Kate 30 seconds to jog to pole three, it must have taken ten seconds  to reach each pole. That would mean sixty seconds to get to pole six. Because she has already spent thirty seconds jogging to pole three altogether it took kate 90 seconds.

Summary- The answer 90 seconds to jog to pole 6.
