But Sebastian Vettel is the name of a German racing driver, whereas, I asked a brand name. Ok, next hint for question B is, its an internationally well-known German brand name.

a) there is only one word that starts with a "o" and sounds like "v" in the English dictionary and that is the word one.

b)
Volkswagon
The Correct way or how a German would pronounce Volkswagon is ‘ FOLKS - VAAGON’.

Hi StrmCkr,

The word "one" occurred only "once" in the English dictionary.

How do you make the number one disappear by adding to it?

Correct.

One is to three as three is to five and five is to four and four is the magic number.

What is the pattern?

One has three letters in the word
three has five letters in the word
five has four letters in the word
four has four letters in the word
when you try more numbers they will always come back to the number four: so four is the magic number

Correct.

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

Use the digits above once each only to compose two fractions which when added together equal 1.

[0/(9+8+7+5+4)] + [(3*2*1) /6] = 1

Mutiple solutions probably needs better wording

Do u mean ech fraction must use each digit once

Hi StrmCkr,

Hint: the equation should be look like this:

x1 / y1 + x2 / y2 = 1

where x1, x2, y1 and y2 combined contain all digits 0 to 9 exactly once and each variable contain greater than 0 value.
If one digit appear in x1 then it should not be repeat in other variables.
Just two fraction numbers to be added and no more calculations allowed.
