  1. How does a substitution cipher work?
  2. "JDS CGJSNAWJCKS JBBV YNBKCZSZ QP ZWBZS AVVBOU A USTC-AIJBTAJCW ZSWNPYJCBG BX TSUUAESU SGWNPYJSZ QP UIQUJCJIJCBG WCYDSNU.

  3. "JDS TACG JSWDGCHIS CU JB AGAVPMS JDS XNSHISGWCSU BX VSJJSNU AGZ XCGZ JDS TBUJ VCFSVP QCENATU."
  4. Why is it harder for it to solve shorter text? Or put better, why is it easier to solve with longer text? Think frequencies. Fix the last cipher manually to get the correct answer.
  5. Solve this, with the knowledge that the word "substitution" is in the plaintext. "VCZNKOV: GSV NLHG XLNNLM ZOKSZYVGH FHVW ULI HFYHGRGFGRLMH ZIV" Don't forget to use frequency analysis.
