 (i) Let I be denoted by x. There are 4 corners of a square. On counting each corner thrice, we get $3\times 4=12$ According to the question, $x+12=34$ $\Rightarrow$   $x+1212=3412$ $x+0=22$ $\Rightarrow$   $x=22$ Hence, I am 22. (ii) According to the question. $x+7=23$ $\Rightarrow$   $x+77=237$ $\Rightarrow$   $x+0=16$ $x=16$ (iii) Let the special number be x. Then according to the question [In cricket team, no. of players be 11] $x6=11$ $\Rightarrow$   $x6+6=11+6$ $\Rightarrow$   $x+0=17$ $\Rightarrow$   $x=17$ Hence, the special number is 17. (iv) Let I be denoted by x. Then according to the question. $22x=x$ $\Rightarrow$   $22x+x=x+x$ $\Rightarrow$   $22+0=2x$ $\Rightarrow$   $2x=22$ $\Rightarrow$   $x=11$ Thus, I am 11.
