### IQ Puzzle #4 - Hard-Very Hard

Sorry guys I had to throw a really tough one at you this time. Don't worry though, because it is so hard I will be awarding 3 points to the solver who explains the correct answer!

Good luck to you all, feel free to post in the comments not only your answer but the reason why if you want to!

1. Can't figure it out but I like the idea of the puzzles.
I want to check more out.
Followed.
Check me out, brother.

2. I thought longer on that one than I should have. I still have no definite answer. I'm going to say 37 D. Just cause.

3. I'm gonna go with 11 A.

even though I don't have a real idea on how to work these things out, I just made up my own little way.

4. my head hurts just from looking at this...and I love puzzles. gonna have to think hard on this one man.

5. God this one has me stumped, I can't find the pattern at all, but I'm going with 11 on a hunch that I might be right.

6. 14F Just like squid ive got no Idea how to do this. Has be completely bamboozled. I worked out my own little way ;) Hope to see more puzzles in the near future!

7. 11 A, my brain works in ridiculous ways.

8. 18C

I don't actually think that's the answer, but it's one of the only free ones left.

9. ...what he said :D

"B"

10. I love puzzles 18c?
+followed.

11. Wow. This is difficult, but I'm pretty sure the answer is A. 11

12. 10 - 1 + 14 = 23
6 + 5 + 2 = 13
13 - 1 + 11 = 23

pattern being 23 13 23

that's how I figured out my answer in case anyone was wondering

13. Stumped again....
Good stuff man

14. @Dat Squid if that's right I wasn't even close.

15. 7 E
:) I believe I figured this one out. If I am wrong though then I am completely lost! :D

16. OMG, I have no idea. :(

17. I'm just going to give up. I've embarrassed myself too much already.

18. @Dat Squid that is not the way I set up the puzzle but I love your thinking - I award you a point for being creative.

19. Also @oinyo if you explain yours I may give you a point too :)

20. :( Makin me feel silly here.

21. I've spent an hour on this already and I haven't been able to figure it out =(. The only pattern I found was that if you read the columns left to right it's 10 (-4) 6 (+7) 13 (-12) 1 (+4) 5 (-4) 1 (+13) 14 (-12) 2...

That is, the differences alternate between addition and subtraction. The differences themselves though (-4, +7, -12, +4, -4, +13, -12) seem to occur randomly. I'm guessing to explain these differences there's another pattern I'd have to find within the numbers, which I haven't found yet. Or maybe I'm just completely off, who knows. I'll guess 7E.

22. Yeesh, I have no idea. I remember these from math class and just like back then my brain goes blank...

23. OMG YAY I GET A POINT! awesome blog
