5. For ALL APPLICANTS.

The Millennium school has 1000 students and 1000 student lockers. The lockers are in

a line in a long corridor and are numbered from 1 to 1000.

Initially all the lockers are closed (but unlocked).

The rst student walks along the corridor and opens every locker.

The second student then walks along the corridor and closes every second locker, i.e.

closes lockers 2, 4, 6, etc. At that point there are 500 lockers that are open and 500 that

are closed.

The third student then walks along the corridor, changing the state of every third locker.

Thus s/he closes locker 3 (which had been left open by the rst student), opens locker

6 (closed by the second student), closes locker 9, etc.

All the remaining students now walk by in order, with the /th student changing the

state of every /th locker, and this continues until all 1000 students have walked along

the corridor.

(i) How many lockers are closed immediately after the third student has walked along

the corridor? Explain your reasoning.

(ii) How many lockers are closed immediately after the fourth student has walked along

the corridor? Explain your reasoning.

(iii) At the end (after all 1000 students have passed), what is the state of locker 100?

Explain your reasoning.

(iv) After the hundredth student has walked along the corridor, what is the state of

locker 1000? Explain your reasoning.

(i) A, B and C are three people. One of them is a liar who always tells lies, another is

a saint who always tells the truth, and the third is a switcher who sometimes tells the

truth and sometimes lies. They make the following statements:

A: I am the liar.

B: A is the liar.

C: I am not the liar.

Who is the liar among A, B and C? Briey explain your answer.

(ii) P, Q and R are three more people, one a liar, one a saint, and the third a contrarian

who tells a lie if he is the rst to speak or if the preceding speaker told the truth, but

otherwise tells the truth. They make the following statements:

P: Q is the liar.

Q: R is the liar.

R: P is the liar.

Who is the liar among P, Q and R? Briey explain your answer.

(iii) X, Y and Z are three more people, one a liar, one a switcher and one a contrarian.

They make the following statements:

X: Y is the liar.

Y: Z is the liar.

Z: X is the liar.

X: Y is the liar.

Y: X is the liar.

Who is the liar among X, Y and Z? Briey explain your answer.

7. For APPLICANTS IN COMPUTER SCIENCE ONLY.

Ox-words are sequences of letters c and / that are constructed according to the following

rules:

I. The sequence consisting of no letters is an Ox-word.

II. If the sequence \ is an Ox-word, then the sequence that begins with c, followed

by \ and ending in /, written c\/, is an Ox-word.

III. If the sequences l and \ are Ox-words, then the sequence l followed by \ , written

l\ , is an Ox-word.

All Ox-words are constructed using these rules. The length of an Ox-word is the number

of letters that occur in it. For example cc// and c/c/ are Ox-words of length 4.

(i) Show that every Ox-word has an even length.

(ii) List all Ox-words of length 6.

(iii) Let \ be an Ox-word. Is the number of occurrences of c in \ necessarily equal to

the number of occurrences of / in \? Justify your answer.

You may now assume that every Ox-word (of positive length) can be written uniquely

in the form c\/\

0

where \ and \

0

are Ox-words.

(iv) For : > 0, let C

q
