  1. The first answer is found by visualizing the 5 men standing in a line, and remembering each of their names. Then, moving the last three men up to the front of the line, and keeping track of their order. Do that three times, and here is what you get. First, they are standing in this order: Paul, Ben, Andy, Dave, Tim. Move the last three to the beginning of the line (keeping them in consecutive order) and you have: Andy, Dave, Tim, Paul, Ben. Do it one more time and you have: Tim, Paul, Ben, Andy, Dave. Do it one last time and you wind up with: Ben, Andy, Dave, Tim, Paul.
