About the cups problem, it is impossible:
Three cups problem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Flip the first glass over and flip the third glass over but put it in the second glass...
So, now 1st glass is facing downwards, and both 2nd and 3rd glasees are facing downwards, but third glass is inserted into 2nd glass...
Next step, flip them over by turning the 1st glass over, and also the 2nd glass over(which by default will flip the third glass over)
Problem solved... Party!!!

^Hehe, That's the very point of the Technothlon. I feel it's not as much about IQ/reasoning as it is about thinking outside the box.

Q.6
Since max single score is 40 and least is 16, no of arrows he can use varies between 3-6
One possible answer with 6 arrows is:
16+16+17+17+17+17=100!!!
