OK, I'll give you the answers, just this once:

16. Pickle
28. 3
31. Lithium
33. Robert Kennedy (although Bea Arthur would also be correct)

Let's not make this a habit.

Tom is just winding you up !

Try these answers:

16 = 1946

28 = A shade of blue

31 = Mata Hari or Phoenix, Arizona

33 = Left [right would be a blind alley]

OK, smart guy, would you please tell me how you get 1946 from this problem:

x2 + x = y4 + y3 + y2 + y - x2% - x +y3 x y - 12 + x3 -x3 + x - y3 + z3 + z x 1 (2x-3) + (3 + 1x) - 27=

This a Mensa Test !

The unasked real question [hidden in code] was:

In what year was this question first published ?

Hence: 1946

A better question would be:

How did you come up with the answer 'pickle' ?

Easy:

16. What's a six letter word that rhymes with tickle?

I guess we didn't take the same test.
