Puzzle 14-15: Worms

The example can't be unique because it's symmetric, right?

Sorry the numbers in the left grid are missing. We will add it in the next version of the booklet.

Puzzle 7-8) Inner ABC: Does the example have a second valid solution? (in rows 1, 4, 5: move the B to the empty cell)

No, the solution is unique. In the version you suggest you would need hint A in R3C1. Hint '-' means that no letter can be seen both in the row and column from this cell.

14-15) Worms
"The same numbers may not touch each other anywhere in the grid."
This touch means "by a side or by a corner"?

They may not touch not even by a corner. It will be clarified in the final version of the IB.

7-8) Inner ABC
"You can see only the first letter in each of the 4 directions."
This means, that you can see through the empty cells as well, right?

Yes, you can see through the empty cells. The same principle as in standard As Easy As ABC.
