    Correct answer: 15th ring - enter 29 guests 15th ring - present 225

    Step-by-step explanation:

    After first ring 1 guest

    After second ring 1+3 = 4 = 2² present

    After third ring 4+5 = 9 = 3² present

    After fourth ring 9+7 = 16 = 4²

    After fifth ring 16+9 = 25 = 5²

    and so on ...

    After 15th ring 15² = 225 present

    After 15th ring enter 225 - 196 = 29 guests

    God is with you!
