I worked for a long time, starting from the answer I wanted and a bunch of things that were true and false about it. I couldn't get it narrowed down enough using just 5 clues. So I tried another number, and another. I think I've finally got a puzzle that works, but it doesn't feel as elegant as Jonathan's. Tell me if you get one possible answer. (But don't post the answer, please.)
And I'd love to know if anyone else has any success making these up.
Who am I?
There are four true and four false statements about the secret number. Each pair of statements contains one true and one false statement. Find the trues, find the falses, and find the number.1a. I am the sum of two squares.
1b. I do not have any repeating digits.
2a. I'm even.
2b. I have exactly two digits.
3a. I'm prime.
3b. I am one less than a triangular number.
4a. I have just one digit.
4b. I am the product of consecutive primes.
