Substitute digits for the letters to make the following
subtraction problem true.
S A N T A
- C L A U S
X M A S
Note that the leftmost letter can't be zero in any word.

letter can be 3 and all other M in the puzzle must be 3.
Karan bought a little box of midget matches, each one inch
in length. He found that he could arrange them all in the

Last Saturday Milan went for the late night show and came
late. In the morning family members asked him which movie
did he see. He gave different answers to everyone.
? He told to his father that he had gone to see MONEY.
? According to his mom, he saw either JOHNY or BABLU.
? His elder brother came to know that he saw BHABI.
? To his sister, he told ROBOT.
? And his grandpa heard that he saw BUNNY.

each of the six movie names mentioned above has exactly two
letters common with the movie he saw. (with the same positions)
Can you tell which movie did Milan see?
