Well, 2 and 3 seemed very familiar--it wasn't "oh, I remember this puzzle, I know the answer," but it was more like "OK, I think there's a trick in 3--what else can it be? Of course" and "2...haven't I seen this before? Don't remember. One, then two ones--wait, that next one is 'two one'..."

As to 1, I'd determined the addition pattern easily enough, and I was just saying to myself "why are three, seven, and twelve skipped--wait, three, seven, and twelve? Of course."
