Simple puzzles

Post by HansV »

It's a slow day, so here are a few simple puzzles (try to avoid searching for solutions on the interwebs),

1) Change DINER to MENUS by changing one letter at a time. Each intermediate word must be a valid word in English.

2) Take two away from FIVE to get 4.

3) What does this say?

If your absence does not affect them, your presence didn't matter.

It's OK if you first solved them yourself!
