(Harry Potter Riddle) You enter the final chamber. Purple flames blocked the way back and black flames blocked the way forward. There are seven bottles on the table. The largest one is on the second to the right side and the two smallest ones are the ones third from the left and on the rightmost side. You read a paper that says:

Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind,
Two of us will help you, whichever you would find,
One among us seven will let you move ahead,
Another will transport the drinker back instead,
Two among our number hold only nettle wine,
Three of us are killers, waiting hidden in line.
Choose, unless you wish to stay here for evermore,
To help you in your choice, we give you these clues four:
First, however slyly the poison tries to hide
You will always find some on nettle wine’s left side;
Second, different are those who stand at either end,
But if you would move onwards, neither is your friend;
Third, as you see clearly, all are different size,
Neither dwarf nor giant holds death in their insides;
Fourth, the second left and the second on the right
Are twins once you taste them, though different at first sight.

Which bottle sends you forward?

A dead body is found at the bottom of a multistory building. Seeing the position of the body, it is evident that the person jumped from one of the floors, committing suicide. A homicide detective is called to look after the case. He goes to the first floor and walks in the room facing the direction in which the body was found. He opens the window in that direction and flips a coin towards the floor. Then he goes to the second floor and repeats the process. He keeps on doing this until he reaches the last floor. Then, when he climbs down he tells the team that it is a murder not suicide. How did he come to know that it was a murder?

You and your nasty, 99 relatives are invited to the reading of your uncle's will. He want's to leave all of his riches to you but he knows that if he gives it directly then your relatives will pester you forever. He taught you everything you have to know about riddles so he left a note in his will.

"I have created a puzzle. If all 100 answer it together then you will split the money evenly. However, if you are the first to find the pattern and solve the problem without doing any legwork then you will have all the money to yourself. Good luck."

The lawyer takes you and your relatives to a room with 100 lockers which each contains a single word. Each relative is assigned to a certain number from 1 to 100. Heir 1 will open all the lockers. Heir two will close every second locker. Heir three will change the status of every third locker. So if the locker is open, they will close it and if it is closed they will open it. The pattern will continue until all 100 of you have gone. The words in the lockers that remain open in the end will contain the clue to opening the safe full of his riches. Before Cousin Thaddeus can open the locker, you stop him and say you know which lockers will remain open. You open the lockers: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, and 100. The clue is: "The code is the first five lockers touched only twice." What are the numbers for the code?
