Harry we are also stuck on B, we have tried so many things, could you maybe point us in the right direction? [Edited by Harry] Please give us a small push in the right direction! Thank you

For challenge 7B I just wanted to know if the encryption is a caesar shift and then a transposition cipher because I am trying to solve it but am facing dead ends.16th May 2020 at 5:56 pm #48284
Harry, can you confirm whether the intended keyword for the permutation is […], or maybe […] (which one might need after all […])?
[Couldn’t possibly comment! Harry]16th May 2020 at 5:56 pm #48287
I still don’t see anything wrong with the sentence: ‘In training we recommended a combination of Casear shift and basic transposition.’ Also, why is everyone talking about a typo. The only typo I see is the word ‘Casear’ which should be spelt ‘Caesar’. Still, I don’t see anything.16th May 2020 at 5:57 pm #48313Inactive
What does that mean? Like frequency analysis?16th May 2020 at 5:57 pm #48314Inactive
Is it possible that 7b was reversed in some way before being [Edited by Harry]?
[I suppose it is possible. Harry]16th May 2020 at 5:57 pm #48317
Can we have a direct hint please?
[More direct than the last two sentences of part A? Or do you mean you would like a hint for part A, in which case 6A tells you what sort of cipher you need to break! Good luck, Harry]16th May 2020 at 9:19 pm #48323
@Harry, you know that I have solved it. Just wanted to know what the intended keyword is.
[Honestly? Can’t remember! It’s been a long week. Harry]16th May 2020 at 9:20 pm #48324Inactive
Remember it wouldn’t matter whether it was ciphered in […] first or […], one substitutes letters and the other changes their positions. However my problem is once I’ve got the right frequency of letters by substituting using […] cipher, I can’t solve the second […] cipher.16th May 2020 at 9:20 pm #48321
also, is there any way you can know which [….] is the correct one before you […..] it is? There seems to be to mant possibilities.
[How would you do it if there was only the first thing to do? Same thing works here! Harry]16th May 2020 at 9:20 pm #48319
is the tlitle anything? like the jeyword for part B?16th May 2020 at 10:37 pm #48325Inactive
@Galaxywolf The typo is in 7B
A certain persons name has a extra letter.
It would be well for all to read about this great man, he died 22/10/2018 aged 99.17th May 2020 at 6:32 pm #48326Inactive
I tested all 25 possibilities of the […] cipher on it, then tried decoding the […] cipher even resorting to a bruteforce method, still have gotten absolutely nothing readable.17th May 2020 at 6:32 pm #48327
@TLW a certain river’s name is missing a letter, btw.17th May 2020 at 6:33 pm #48329
@Ssachin, I’m not actually sure it matters!
