This is impossible. There are many puzzles that have the same basic information, but not the same answers. Maybe one name in the puzzle will be changed. I solve maybe 15 puzzles a day, and the really dedicated solvers do many more than that. Usually at least a month goes by before I get the same puzzle again, and there is no way that I could remember a specific puzzle. I know that some have said that they do recognize patterns, though.
