Okay, tried lots of different things with the second one with no success so far, so i'll just skip to the third one.

"Try to find a sentence using exactly four a's, three c's, three d's, thirty-two e's, eight f's, four g's, seven h's, twelve i's, three l's, nineteen n's, nine o's, one p, one q, nine r's, twenty-four s's, eighteen t's, five u's, seven v's, five w's, two x's, and five y's." Also, 19 apostrophes, 48 spaces, 20 commas, and one period :)

Oh wait, thinking through the third one was enough to clue me in on the second one!

1113213211, if i'm counting right at least.

Perhaps i should go back and look at the first one again now :)

Hah, yeah, first one wasn't what I was looking for, but yeah, I never even thought about the second and third ones being paired together to hint at each other. XD
