    hint: your answer is 'always' a mutliplier of 9
    9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54 etc
    so look at the answers, the same gift is always by those numbers.
    when you play again, a different gift is always by those numbers
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    They set up the chart in rows of 11 too, so that it is hard to notice that the same gift is on all the multiples of 9 (which the initial subtraction will always give you).
