I met 5 men today each with a unique name:
Albert S. Hawkins
John D. Hawkins
James I. Hawkins
Colin K. Hawkins
and Daniel Hawkins, who would not give me his middle initial.
Nevertheless I was able to work out the initial.
What was it?
HintYou will need to do a fair bit of work with placings in the alphabet.
AnswerDaniel H. Hawkins.
Take the first letter of Daniel's name (D) and find its place in the alphabet (4).
Now take the last letter of Daniel's name (L) and find its place (12).
Now subtract 4 from 12 to get 8 - and the 8th letter is H.
