Items: fishing net, 
       bait (hen, rooster, chicken, or goat)

Skills: cr.husb.animals.grooming 
        cr.hunting.trapping (for capturing crocodiles, 169 bonus is sufficient)      

Find Brick Bumblebee a few rooms north of the Temple of Offler. He'll tell you want to do.
Buy a net from the Harbour market. 
Tame an animal then carry it, or lead it to the temple of Offler.
Tie animal to spike.
When the time comes "capture crocodile with net.
Once you have the crocodile, drag him to Brick. 

EDIT: Seems to be a problem using Hens- they will follow you into the temple but will not stay.
EDIT: Roosters also do not work- only thing that has stayed is a goat so don't waste your time with hens and roosters.
EDIT 2:Hens and roosters do work, perhaps more skill is needed for them to stay?

Buy a net, tame an animal and take it to the temple. Tie the animal to the spike, and when the time comes "Capture crocodile with net."

Discworld quest page for Polygraph

Skills:  Have to be able to speak Ephebian; otherwise none (except for some good old-fashioned head-logic)
Items:  none

In Ephebe, go to the Stavro's taverna on Tuvelpit Road.  Inside the tavern are four philosophers - Appiristus, Bulos, Chryphon and Didorus - who are whispering puzzles to each other.  In Ephebian, ask for a "puzzle".  The philosophers will provide the player with a variation upon the "Truth/Lie" logic puzzle, whereupon it must be determined by a single statement from each of three philosophers who is telling the truth and who is lying.  It is possible to "repeat" the statements.  To provide answers, the syntax is to say "<X> is a Liar" or "<X> is a Truth-teller".

There are many puzzle variations as to the proper combination.  There is no penalty to ask for another puzzle immediately after failing.  Upon successful completion of the quest, one can continue to ask for additional puzzles.

"Tough Luck", in which you watered your way into good fortune. (Quest level 2)

Discworld quest page for Tough Luck


Find the cactus on Dockside Walk. Look at the roots to make sure they are dry then "water roots of cactus with <container>". It's a good idea to make sure you are protected somehow. Cactuses can hurt!
