You know this one actually took me a few minutes but I do believe I got it... The letter 'E'.

1211
111221

What are the next two sets of numbers? And how did you get them?

Seen this one before! :)

312211,
13112211.

The numbers are literal descriptions of the previous numbers.

Two guards are holding one sack each (two in total). One sack is full of money, the other is full of rocks. You are allowed to take ONE of the sacks. One guard always tells the truth, the other always lies, and you don't know whom is who as they are identical twins. You may ask only one question to one guard. What question would you ask to ensure you pick the right sack and get the money?
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

I heard this a little different, but same concept.
(Say Bag A has the money, Bag B the rocks.)

You ask either guard "If I were to ask the other guard which bag has the money, what would he say?"
If he is telling the truth he would tell you the liar would say Bag B. If he is lying he would also tell you Bag B(as he wouldn't tell you that). Then do the opposite and choose Bag A.

Quarter to two

10+15 = 25 = US Quarter, two kids :)

A 6-foot tall Magician had a water glass and was holding the glass above his head. He let it drop to the carpet without spilling a single drop of water.

How could he manage to drop the glass from a height of six feet and not spill a drop of water?

It is an empty cup. It never says there was anything in it, only that it is a "water glass".
