### How Many Apples Does it Take

Four wise men sat at a table eating apples during a dinner party. When they started, there were 11 apples. By the end of the party, all 11 were eaten. Each man ate at least one apple, and everyone knew that. Each man also knew how many he had eaten, but did not know how many the others had eaten.

The first wise man, let's call him Alfred, asked the second, let's call him Bert, "Did you eat more apples than I did, Bert?"

Bert answered, "I don't know. Did you, Carl, eat more apples than I did?"

Carl responded, "I don't know."

David immediately said, "Aha!"

David knows how many apples each person ate. Do you?

When you answer, lay out your logic for the rest of us! You must assume that each wise man is perfectly logical and can think his way through the puzzle.

### Can You Point to the Answer?

The first is needed to make quotes you see,
And it often sticks up when it's time for noon tea.

The second's biggest distinction is found
Bearing the symbol of love that is bound.

The third should be biggest but that can depend,
Never standing alone or it may offend.

The fourth is oft used when making a selection
Or if you should need a gun for protection.

The fifth is the fattest and oddest by far,
And can sometimes be found in a wrestling war.

What are they?
