4 theoretical positions of block no 7. Which of these are possible ? (7A Yes) (7B No) (7C Yes) (7D No)

N001
Soma looks easy, but even if you use only 2 blocks difficult shapes can be made: this figure can be made of 2 blocks. which and how ?
 ```2 2 2 . 6 . 6 6 2 . 6 . ```

P001 (Soma pairs 1)
If you start with the previous shape, it will be particularly difficult to build the cube
 ```. . 2 2 | 3 . . 3 1 1 3 4 1 6 6 2 6 | 5 . . 3 . . 4 4 7 . . 2 6 | 5 . . 5 5 7 4 7 7 ```

P002 Double size (Soma pairs 2)
If the smallest block (No 1) is removed, you may build a double size of it, using the remaining blocks. This looks easy.
 ```1 1 7 2 6 6 7 7 4 6 1 3 2 2 2 7 4 4 6 3 3 5 4 3 5 5 5 ```

P003 The cube in halves (Soma pairs 3) by Piet
There is a special way of building the cube, First build the two shapes, and then combine then to the cube
 ```2 2 . 4 2 5 4 2 5 4 . . 4 . . 7 5 5 . . . 7 . . 7 7 . 2 2 3 4 2 5 4 2 5 + = 4 6 3 4 6 3 7 5 5 1 . . 1 3 . 3 3 3 6 6 3 7 1 1 7 7 1 . . . 1 6 . 6 6 . . . . . . . 6 . . ```
