Matty, the math mouse, had fun playing Mastermind in the Cool™ Club, but he has worked up a hankering for some honey. So our adventurous arithmetist ventured to the local bee hive. Only to find it missing!
Startled, he looked around and saw a trail of dirt mixed drippings leading to a big cave. At the cave, there was a befuddled looking bear. Matty tried to sneak in but the bear noticed him.
"Hello little mouse, are you trying to steal my hard earned honey?", Barry the bear scowled.
"Mayhaps," muttered Matty, the math mouse, meekly.
"Oh, I am willing to share if you ask... and help me."
"Okay," Matty mumbled, looking at the heap of honeyed honeycomb.
"Burt, my bully brother, keeps teasin' me cause I can't figure out his puzzle."
"Well he likes to yell sentences at me and laughs at me when I can find any pattern."
"Can I hear some examples?"
"YES GRACE CAN YOU GO", he said but when I asked "NO GRACE CAN'T GO", he laughed and said that didn't fit.
"ZOO CANOE MOO", he said. Then he said that "RHINO CANOE TOO?" did not work.
"MARS MOON VENUS SUN" fit but "PLUTO" didn't.
He said, "CAVERNOUS SUPERNOVA UNCOVERS UNSAVORY SUPREMACY" after which I just gave up and said "NO". And then he said "Ha! You finally found one that works."
So can you figure out what the pattern is?
"YES GRACE CAN YOU GO",
"ZOO CANOE MOO",
"MARS MOON VENUS SUN",
"CAVERNOUS SUPERNOVA UNCOVERS UNSAVORY SUPREMACY",
"A MAGE RUSE"
Does not work:
"NO GRACE CAN'T GO",
"RHINO CANOE TOO?",
"ZOO KAYAK MOO"
"A WIZARD'S TRICK"
If there is anything I did with this puzzle that strikes you as peculiar mayhaps you could undo it.
