    Below are four (4) questions.

    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!!!

    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 in the next question.

    To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.

    Second Question: If you overtake the last person, then you are...?









    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 maths! 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. Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?

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









    Answer: Nunu? NO! Of course not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again

    You ARE the weakest link......Goodbye!

    i got 1 & 4 right; had to break out the calculator for #3... #2 just plain outsmarted me (it was the pressure!)... The worst part about it all is that i've seen these questions and answers before... Very frustrating poorly reflective...

    For that one where they asked about passing the last person in the race I said first place. Technically that could be right because your starting to lap other people.

    Very true. But at the same time you are still first. Before you pass him and after you pass him. It asks what position you are in after you overtake the last person. First.

    We've done this before. Question #2 about overtaking the last person: If you are racing in a line, then you can't overtake the last person. If you are racing around a track, and you overtake the last person, you could be in any position in the race (except last), you are simply lapping the person in last place.

    Question #1 about overtaking the second person: again, if you are racing around a track and you overtake the second person, you could be in any position (except first or second), if you are "unlapping" yourself.

    It doesn't say you are passing for position, it says you are overtaking. Right?

    On the math Q, I got 5000 the first time. But, after I pulled out the calculator & got 4100, I added the numbers in my head & got 4100. I want to know how I got 5000 the first time!!

    (if you are a cheater or seek confirmation you are a genius,
    answer will appear at very bottom of post)

    Fill in the blank:

    On a speedometer-checking section of highway, which is marked
    every mile for 5 miles, a married couple is driving down the
    interstate doing 55 mph at the point of entry to the speedo test.
    The husband is behind the wheel. His wife looks over at him
    and says, 'Honey, I know we've been married for 15 years, but,
    I want a divorce.'

    The husband says nothing but slowly increases speed to 60 mph.

    She then says, 'I don't want you to try to talk me out of it,
    because I've been having an affair with your best friend, and
    he's a better lover than you.'

    Again the husband stays quiet and just speeds up as he clenches
    his hands on the wheels.

    She says, 'I want the house.' Again the husband speeds up, and
    now is doing 70 mph.

    She says, 'I want the kids too.' The husband just keeps driving
    faster, and faster, until he's up to 80 mph.

    She says, 'I want the car, the checking account, and all the
    credit cards too.' The husband slowly starts to veer toward a
    bridge overpass piling, as she says, 'Is there anything you want?'

    Just as they approach the 5 mile marker next to the overpass,
    the husband says, 'No, I've got everything I need right here.'

    She asks, 'What's that?'

    The husband replies just before they hit the wall at 90 mph, "________________"

    If you see two dolphins, you are completely relaxed and free from stress.
    If you see only one dolphin, it is time to tell your employer that you need a very long PAID vacation.
