    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? < /U>
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    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 took 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 another1000 . 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 Nunu!
    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 pairof sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?



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



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

    You never said it was a straight race ;)

    I merely placed the competitors on a round track to prove your conclusions to be incorrect given the information your provided ;)

    1. How would I know what Position 'Second Person' was in?
    2. What if you are a dog or was Last Person, Second's sibling?
    3. no argument.
    4. Mary was adopted and not yet officially his daughter. So I have to guess.
    5. We do not really know, there are any number of ways.

    Did i pass, did i?

    Thanks, Waltky for going into this. My dear one has the dementia. It came from the scan. The neurologist did not need to take too many other tests to determine its cause being from brain shrinkage away from the front skull.

    He said it could have been from an injury early in life. My husband was hit hard in his head as a teen on the mean streets of Chicago as a youth and still has a scalp scar over 50 years later.

    His injury did not stop him from becoming a man of faith, a man of science, and one of the best mathematicians in the engineering community, nationally, having isolated an error at a national competition that favored the winner of the contest, a young man from Kentucky, probably 20 years back in time.

    Thanks for shedding some light on my husband's dread issue.

    His heart-rended but dutiful wife,
