Two of the numbers are in the wrong bag. Draw a cross on each of them.

The picture shows two bags, one for even numbers and the other for odd numbers. And we know that two of the numbers are in the wrong bag. Let’s start by checking the bag which contains the even numbers. We know that even numbers end in zero, two, four, six, or eight. 30 is an even number. It ends in a zero. Number 12 also ends in a two, so that’s an even number. 68 ends in an eight, so that’s an even number. But number 41 ends in a one. It’s not an even number. We need to put a cross on this number. This tells us it’s in the wrong place.

The second bag contains odd numbers. And we know that odd numbers end in a one, three, five, seven, or nine. It looks like we found the number in the wrong place. The first number, number 70, ends in a zero. Number 70 isn’t an odd number. It’s an even number. The two numbers in the wrong bag are numbers 41 and 70.
