Sunday Times Teaser 2929 – My Pin Numbers

by Graham Smithers

Published November 11 2018 (link)

Using all but one of the digits 0 to 9, and systematically replacing them by a letter, my pin numbers become ONE, TWO, FIVE and SEVEN.

These numbers are such that:

ONE is odd

TWO is even

FIVE is odd and divisible by 5

SEVEN is divisible by 7


If I told you which digit was not used, you should be able to work out my pin numbers.

What pin number is represented by SEVEN?
