How smart are you?

Postby Madison » Sat Aug 27, 2005 4:24 am

Another email. :-D

Let's see just how smart you really are. You think you are but we'll see......





Test for Dementia
Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer
them
instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately.
OK?


Let's find out just how clever you really are....



Ready? GO!!! (scroll down)












First Question:

You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What
position are you in?












~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are
absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his
place,
you are second!

Try not to screw up next time.
Now answer the second question,
but don't take as much time as you too! k for the first question,
OK?

Second Question:
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?
(scroll down)


















~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are
wrong
again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?


You're not very good at this, are you?








Third Question:
Very tricky arithmetic! Note: This must be done in your head only.
Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.



Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000 . Now add 30.
Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000
Now add 10. What is the total?


Scroll down for answer.....









~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.



If you don't believe it, check it with a calculator!
Today is definitely not your day, is it?
Maybe you'll get the last question right....
....Maybe.



Fourth Question:

Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini,
4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?







~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Did you Answer Nunu?
NO! Of course it isn't.
Her name is Mary. Read the question again!



Okay, now the bonus round:

A mute person goes into a shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By
imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully
expresses himself to the shopkeeper and! the purchase is
done.
Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of
sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?











~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~





He just has to open his mouth and ask...
It's really very simple.... Like you!


:-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

2/5 for me... on the math one, its because your adding thousands and that messes with your mind and you think your adding hundreds when you try to do it quickly so you think you get another thousand to add, but its really only 100... oh yeah i got it wrong btw

I got the math one right and that was it.

Why does a blind person need sunglasses anyway? :-?
