  4. First I move the 1min and 3min persons over. Then I move the 1min person back. After that, I made the 8min and 12min ladies move over. I proceed to move the 3min person back to the right. I then made the 6min and 1min men move to the left. Finally I moved the 1min person back to the right and together with the 3min person they moved back. I used trial and error.

  8. Use no.1 to go across the bridge with no. 3.Then let no. 1 come back and go across the bridge with no.6.Then let no.1 come back again.Then use no.8 and no.12 go across the bridge.Then use no.3 to come back and together with no.1, go across the bridge.(1s to spare)

    Ps: Sorry, I looked at the main trick(not solution) as I was unable to solve the puzzle.

    While I was figuring out the solution(after I looked at the main trick),I applied addition and subtraction.

  10. Same method as everyone. I found out about this a little later... Ms Loh, there's a typo error at the title. It should be Bridge Crossing not Brdge Crossing.
