jee, the Quran explorer is handy.

Free rice could help those preparing for IELTS and GRE.

Don't think of a number, click next and see what symbol appears in the spooky site.

Okay here goes the logic behind the spooky site...
whichever 2-digit number we select...suppose 66 or 92 or 37...when we sum up its digits...in the stated cases
6+6=12
9+2=11
3+7=10
and subtract the result from the original...
66-12
92-11
37-10
the answer we get will always be a multiple of 9...again in the cases stated...
66-12=54
92-11=81
37-10=27
so now notice that all multiples of 9 are assigned the same symbol on the website...and voila! that's how they always know which number we end up with :)...
This logic was figured out by my colleague Ms. Samreen Mukhtar...a big round of applause for her along with a water cooler :)

for those who cannot resist abstraction:

any two digit number can be written as
10x+y
such that x,y are a natural numbers less than or equal to 9. (x is the 10s digit while y is the units digit).
the sum of the two digits is
x+y

thus, the difference of these two numbers is

(10x+y) - (x+y) = 9x

since x is a natural number the result as noted above is always a multiple of 9
:D

oh i guess i am late to visit the site. I solved the problem within 60 sec. :(

'(10x+y) - (x+y) = 9x'
kewl!
