A Puzzle, A Highly Recommended One


Came across this very refreshing, somewhat challenging and extremely satisfying riddle. I am producing the puzzle in the same format in which it was forwarded to me, so please do not blame me for the unnecessary inclusion of "Einstein said you are in the top 2% of intelligent people of you crack it" etc., but yes, if you crack it, you can pat yourself on the back! All the best.
