Not sure how much this will help, since I'm not an expert, but I'll try.

#4
Look at the first rule (at least 2 Loaves) and the 4th rule (one of the six loaves is U/O). Given this, we can't have more than 4 U/O because that would fill up all six spots with O's and violate the first rule

#9
I had an unconventional way of doing this one. I looked at the rules and didn't see anything preventing G from getting in the mix and used as my hypo the correct answer to #6 by replacing one of the (T)s with a G, so it doesn't have to be true that someone leaves two messages.


Hope this helps.

I still don't get #4. why cant you have 1 unsliced oatmeal loaf and and then 5 sliced oatmeal loaves? There are two kind of loaves then and there is at least one unsliced oatmeal loaf?

Of the three kinds of loaves--oatmeal, rye, wheat--the delivery must contain at least two.
