  1. Cows - sheep = 19

    Ducks - hens = 19

    Unless there is more data, that is all you can do.

  6. There are multiple answers who's subtraction result is 19. (Ex. 20-1, 22-3, 50-31). The question is only asking you to make sure the subtraction problem are all different numbers and that the number representing hens is larger than the number representing cows.
    One solution is :
    Cows= 20
    Sheep= 1
    Ducks= 50
    Hens= 31

  7. C=Cows; H=Hens; S=Sheep; D=Ducks

    (C-S)=19 & (D-H)=19

    H>C

    Whereas, (H>C-S) = (D-H)

    Therefore, you have the Hen, Chicken and the Rooster. If the Rooster is having sex with the Hen, who is having sex with the Chicken?
