1. Marble Puzzle

The number 2 on the clock is represented by the red marble. Using the number to you get:
Blue (1) + Blue (1) = Red (2)

Red (2) + Blue (1) + Blue (1) = Green (4)

Green (4) + Red (2) = Blue (1) + Yellow (5)

3. Number Puzzle

You know right away that 2, 8, 5 are not in the answer. Leaving 1, 3, 4, 6, and 7 as potential numbers.

Based on the 1st and 2nd clue, you know that either 6 or 4 can be part of the answer, but not both of them at once. Since the 6th clue says that two number are correct, it means that 3 is in the answer.

If 3 is in the answer, then the 5th clue rules eliminates 4, since only one number is correct. Meaning, by process of elimination, 6 is in the answer.

If you look at the 2nd clue, you can determine that 6 is in the correct spot, since 4 and 5 are not in the answer.

If you look at the 5th clue again, you know that 3 is in the answer, but it is in the wrong position there. Since we know that 6 is the last number of the answer, and 3 cannot be in the middle position, then 3 can only be the first number. So you now know where 3 is located as well.

If you look at the 4th clue, you know that 5 is not in the answer. So that leaves 7 and 1. The clue says the right number is in the wrong position. Since you already know what the first number and last number are, that means 7 cannot be correct or the clue would say it was in the right position. That leaves only 1 as our final number in the answer.
