A Wizard performs pure magic. Being able to solve puzzles or problems in Mathematics can be almost magical. The math wizard may not know the technique, and yet may be able to apply common-sense in solving puzzles. An excellant example is that of Ramanujam, who with little formal training in math, could still solve many problems that baffled experts. Solving four different areas of puzzles in the given time needs focus, ability to deal with complicated data without getting confused and some practice in puzzles. |
