It's time for another Brain Game chestnut. It's fun to bring some of the classic puzzles and riddles out of the mothballs every once in a while, I think. There's always a new generation that's never heard them. How many of you remember this one?

How can you take two from 11 and one from 7
and end up with the same thing left over?

Here is one SOLUTION.

OUR SOLUTION:

By taking two letters from "eleven" and one letter from "seven." If you take the "EL" from "ELEVEN" and the "S" from "SEVEN," you're left with the same four letters: "EVEN."

NOTE: Several readers have also offered similarly clever (and perfectly acceptable) solutions. Read the comments to see them.
