    Are the positions in brackets for the letters in the scrambled word, or for when it's been unscrambled? I see an 8 letter word but no 10.

    The positions refer to the letters in the unscrambled word of course.

    Eg.,

    If the scrambled word and positions are given as follows:
    A D I X R O O B (pos: 1 , 3, 6)

    The unscrambled word would be RADIOBOX.
    The letters in positions 1, 3 and 6 would be 'R', 'D' and 'B'. You note down these letters separately.

    When you have unscrambled all 4 words, given in puzzle above, you should have a total of 10 letters (using the position indicators).
    These, you unscramble again to get the final 10 letter word.

    Go crazy on this one. I just solved it.
    If I receive a matching one, that will be the solution Big Grin

    Five couples who gathered for New Year's Eve
    decided that, their children were old enough
    to stay up with them until midnight.

    Q: Determine the name and age (11 or 12 years old)
    of each child, and the names of their parents,
    from the following information.

    1. Patricia, who has a daughter, is not married
    to Bill. Frank isn't Jack's father.

    2. David is Michael's son. His mother is not Anne.

    3. The two 11-year-olds are Eric's child, and Ryan.

    4. Robert, whose wife is not Heidi, has a son who is
    not 11 years old.

    5. Melissa is 12 years old, and is not the child of
    couple Eric and Cindy.

    6. The couple Michael and Sara do not have a child
    named Brenda.
