Puzzle 41 Solution

Note that the numbers 1-0 on the keyboard form diagonal "columns" on the keyboard, each with 3 letters/symbols below them.

To solve the code, look up the number which the symbol lies above on the keyboard. For instance, ! lies above 1, @ above 2, # above 3 etc and move down that many positions along the "diagonal column" to reach the designated letter. So !1 will be Q, !2 will be A and !3 will be Z

Solving the code, we get: "What is the atomic number of the noble gas which is in the same period as chlorine?"

The noble gas is argon with 18.

Answer: 18
