You are a participant in a race. You overtake the second person. what position are you in?
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 in second place!
Try to do better next time.
Now answer the second question, but don’t take as much time as you took for the first question, OK?
If you overtake the last person, then you are….?
If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again.
Tell me sunshine: How can you overtake the last person?
You’re not very good at this, are you?
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?
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….
Mary’s father has five daughters:
1. Nana; 2. Nene; 3. Nini; 4. Nono; and ????
What is the name of the fifth daughter?
No! Of course it isn’t!
The 5th daughter’s name is Mary! Read the question again!
THE BONUS ROUND:
This is your last chance to redeem yourself.
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 makes his purchase.
Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of sunglasses. How does he indicate what he wants?
He opens his mouth and asks for it!
So how did you do? LOL
