    Win £100 - Answer is - WHAT WE THINK, WE BECOME ( page 3 )

    Win £3000 - Answer is - FONDLY ( page 7 )

    Please note
    In the magazine it has two closing dates 24/10 ( £100 ) and 31/10 ( £3000 )
    As both answers are on the same entry form, it may be wise to use the first date 24/10 as the closing date for both competitions ( hope this makes sense )
