Default PICK A NUMBER FROM 1 TO 9

I'll post the answer later:

1) pick a number from 1-9

2) subtract 5

3) multiply by 3

4) square the number (multiply by the same number -- not square root)

5) add the digits until you get only one digit (i.e. 64=6+4= 10= > 1+0=1)

6) if the number is less than 5, add five. Otherwise subtract 4.

7) multiply by 2

8 ) subtract 6

9) map the digit to a letter in the alphabet 1=A, 2=B, 3=C, etc...

10) pick a name of a country that begins with that letter

11) take the second letter in the country name and think of a mammal that begins with that letter.

12) think of the color of that mammal

1-5*3*12=144. 1+4+4=9
2-5*3*9=81. 8+1=9
3-5*3*-6=36. 3+6=9
4-5*3*-3=9.
5-5*3*0
6-5*3*3=9
7-5*3*6=36
8-5*3*9=81. 8+1=9
9-5*3*12=144. 1+4+4=9

At this point, you have to subtract 4 from all of them except 5, in which you add 5 to. This makes all of them equal 5. Then you multiply 5 by 2 and get 10. Then you subtract 6 from 10 and get 4. 4 then gives you D, and that is how you get D everytime.

You are going to get d no matter what.
