1. Cell A tells us to put Xs in Cells K and U.
2. Cell U tells us that FKP without parentheses tells us how many total numbers are in the quiz. The total amount of numbers is 10. We know that K has an X. The only way to get 10 with a X and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 is by using multiplication to be either 2X5 or 5X2.  Cell P is higher than Cell F (from Cell A’s clue) so we know that Cell F must be a 2 and Cell P must be a 5.
3.  Cell P tells us that Cell L has a X. Cell L tells us that there is a number in Cell Q. If Cell G had a number then that would make Cell K’s clue false – so Cell G must have a X.
4. Cell G tells us that the second row’s sum is 11. We know from Cell F’s clue that 2 and 5 are in the second row. So that means 4 is also in the row.  Cell G also tells us that Cell B is an odd number. The only odd number that it could be is 5.
5. Cell L tells us that there are even numbers directly below each 5. We already have a 2 in the first row and there has to be a 2 in the second row, so we know Cell C cannot be a 2. The only even number it could be is 4.
6. Cell C tells us that Cell M has a number. For Cell K’s clue to be true, Cell R and Cell W must be Xs.
7. Cell W tells us no column’s sum is double digits so we know Cell D and Cell E must both have Xs.
8. Cell R tells us that there is  at least one number in the bottom row. That means that the third and 4th row haveonly have two numbers.  We already know that Cell C and Cell M are numbers, so Cell H must be a X.
9. Cell H tells us that Cell I has a number. For Cell K’s clue to be true, Cell S must have a X.
10. Even though we only get the second half of a clue from Cell S, it is enough to tell us that Cell X has a number. It’s impossible for there to be 3 numbers in the fourth row, and we know both Cell I and Cell X have numbers.  This means Cell N has a X.
11. Even though Cell N’s clue is continued later, we know it is not continued in Cell S because if you combined Cell N’s and Cell S’s clue, it would read, “The number 1 is is the number in Cell X.” That doesn’t make grammatical sense, and means Cell S does not continue Cell N’s clue. From Cell B we know that the 3’s are going to be above/below each other. This means a 3 cannot go in Cell M. No other number can go in Cell M besides a 1.
12. We know that the 3’s are on top of each other and that the remaining 1 is in the fourth row. This means Cell O and Cell T must be X’s.
13. Cell O and Cell T tell us there are only 3 clues that are split up. Grammar only allows each first part to match exactly one second part. If you combine the clues from Cell M and Cell S, it would read “The number 3 is in Cell X.” Therefore, a 3 goes in Cell X.
14. Using Cell B’s clue, we know Cell Y is a 3.
15. The only numbers left un-guessed are in Cell Q and Cell V; therefore, Cell J must be a X.
16. Using Cell W’s clue we know that a 4 cannot go in Cell V; this means a 2 must go in Cell V and a 4 must go in Cell Q.
