For the last training session of collaboration training, the group were taken to the brainstorm room.

There were 8 boxes with something written text at the base.

enter image description here

The instruction was :

Can you collaborate and determine what is in the boxes?

Rules :

1) You may Mix, Match, shuffle, reshuffle the contents and pass it around.

2) Think inside the box, about the box and around the box

Your time starts now

In case somebody needs it in text format.

4A2P            5N          2M1Y    

1C7R                        1J1V    

6E4S            1H4T        1I7U    

Hint 1

Put same number of Letter BLOCKS (Cubes) in each box corresponding to the number and shuffle it around.

    $\begingroup$ Looks like the contents are all in the form of a number followed by a letter. I assume we're not supposed to rip those apart and send a letter to one box and a number to another? $\endgroup$ – Kingrames Sep 4 '15 at 11:55
