Hints

SO only 4 don't have soft centres ... those four could be either plain or milk.

But at least 4 of the plain must be soft centred ... does that make sense?

All the plain chocolates could be soft centre. what do you think? is that the same as your answer or is yours more correct English?

19 - I got one quarter. Not sure how to explain it as I tried two ways to check.

Triangle CMD if all shaded would be half x side x side = half square

subtract triangle COD = half side x half side = quarter square

half - quarter = quarter of the square.

You can do it by drawing but I can't show that ....

The soft centres one - I think they are looking for the fact you know at least four MUST be. Yes they all could be but you cannot know that for sure ....
