mr hippo, I think you need to jumble up the letter and number sequences a bit in future, coz I reckon people are just googling them and getting them straight away

...or alternatively, think them up yourself.
The answer to no.3 is in another question. The answer to no.2 is evident if you look at no.2. Still trying to figure out no.1. And I got this far without Googling!
