1. Knights and servants

There are 3 couples of knights with their servants, on the left bank of a river, in front of a boat that can carry only two persons.

The knights are blood thirsty and will kill a servant if he remains unattended.

Can you help them pass the river with no servant been killed?

And if you succeed with two or three couples, can you do it with four or five couples?

2. Cat (...stuck on math) and mice

Around a cat there are N mice, one of which is playful. The cat must eat all N mice.

When the cat eats the playful mouse, he stops eating mice.

But the cat is stuck on math and he eats mice following the pattern: after he has eaten a mouse, he does not eat the next mouse at random, but he eats the one that will stop after counting N mice in a raw. The cat counts always in a counterclockwise direction.

Click on the mouse that you think the cat should start eating from, such that the last mouse to be eaten is the playful one.

If you think it is easy for 3 mice, then try it for 13.
