Chung Lau's bidding problem: 3 KQT83 J52 AT74
Why does 2C imply five hearts? How do we get out of 1NT to 2C? (Which I assume is the only reason to play this obsolete method)
Peter Gal's bidding problem: T A2 AT85 Q98532
I wouldn't touch this hand. Light minor suit openings should be suitable for 3NT. With no major, there's nothing going for it.
Deb Dhar's bidding problem: AJx AKQJxx Kxx x

If you think he has that, why not bid 4S last round?
Petter Bengtsson's bidding problem: J5 KJ9842 KQ2 QJ

Bidding now would carry the message "I was happy to defend 4H right up until the moment you told me you could beat it".

How can we answer the question if you don't know your methods? (Playing 2-way NMF like a normal person, I would just show this as invitational with five hearts)
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: KQ8763 7 A9742 K
1NT is an odd starting choice with such a hand.
