    $\begingroup$ @DragonMaster When a puzzle is not your own creation -- as this one clearly isn't, being readily found elsewhere on the internet -- you need to say where you got it from (and, when it's somewhere on the internet, provide a link). Could you edit appropriately, please? Thanks. $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Mar 16 '18 at 14:01
  • $\begingroup$ @GarethMcCaughan it’s probably the third riddle of this link: brightside.me/wonder-quizzes/… $\endgroup$ – Me myself and I Mar 16 '18 at 14:04

    $\begingroup$ @DragonMaster Sorry I will reformulate. On your questions you can accept only one answer (which gives a green mark above the vote points). If you accept another answer, that removes the mark from the previous accepted answer to give it to the newly accepted. $\endgroup$ – Saeïdryl Mar 16 '18 at 15:39

    $\begingroup$ @DragonMaster You rollbacked QuantumTwinkie's edit. He solved this problem. You seem eager to contribute to this site but don't rush things, learn by reading other puzzles and raw texts to understand the syntax $\endgroup$ – Saeïdryl Mar 16 '18 at 14:01

    $\begingroup$ @DragonMaster To make breaks between paragraphs, add two spaces at the end of a line or type "<br>" where you want the "break." To make a hint (or details of an answer) hidden add ">!" to the beginning. Check this page out! $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Mar 16 '18 at 14:30
