    (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,
    \[\Rightarrow \]   \[x+1212=3412\]
    \[\Rightarrow \]   \[x=22\]
    Hence, I am 22.
    (ii) According to the question.
    \[\Rightarrow \]   \[x+77=237\]
    \[\Rightarrow \]   \[x+0=16\]
    (iii) Let the special number be x. Then according to the question
    [In cricket team, no. of players be 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.
    \[\Rightarrow \]   \[22x+x=x+x\]
    \[\Rightarrow \]   \[22+0=2x\]
    \[\Rightarrow \]   \[2x=22\]
    \[\Rightarrow \]   \[x=11\]
    Thus, I am 11.
