One person comes up to another person beside his bike. "Can I use your bike?" he asks. The person by the bike replies, "Only if you figure out the combination to my bike lock, which is made up of 4 different numbers from 1 through 8. You can guess 3 numbers."
He guessed 1235, 4721, and 3862. All three were answered with "One number in the combination is in the wrong place, and another is in the right place. The other two aren't in the combination."
The guesser was puzzled and asked "Is the number divisible by 7?" The person with the bike answered this question and after thinking for a while, the guesser told him the combination. What is the combination?

Sorry, my subtle humor escaped you. I am only that good because I use a computer to defeat my human opponents, as you two did to solve this puzzle. (I also out-bench-pressed Arnold Schwarzenegger once, by using a forklift). No offense. I'm just having a little fun at your expense.
