# Check how smart you really are..

Discussion in 'The ChitChat Lounge' started by Hardik, Feb 6, 2005.

1. ### Hardik.:.:.:BoRn TaLenT:.:.:.

Below are 4 questions. Answer them instantly. You
can't take your time. Answer them immediately. No pencil or paper!And no peeking at the answers.
OK? Let's find out just how smart and 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 answer 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. (You know you took too much
time.)

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?! :

THIRD QUESTION:
Very tricky math! 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?

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?

LAST QUESTION: Mary's father has five daughters:
Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?

ANSWER:
Nunu? Nana? Nene? NONO! Of course not. The
fifth daughter's name is
Mary. Read the question again.

Dementia Test

here's another test for all the smart ppl....

Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important that we keep mentally alert. The saying; "If you don't use it, you will lose it," also applies to the brain, so.....

Below is a very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence. Take the following test and determine if you are losing it or are still "with it."

> OK, relax, clear your mind and.... begin.

> 1. What do you put in a toaster?

>

>

>

>

>

>

> Answer: "bread." If you said "toast," then give up now and go do something else.

> Try not to hurt yourself.

>

> If you said, "bread," go to Question 2.

>

>

>

> 2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink?

>

>

>

>

>

>

>

> Answer: Cows drink water. If you said "milk," please do not attempt the next question. Your brain is obviously over stressed and may even overheat. It may be that you need to content yourself with reading something more appropriate, such as Children's World."

>

> If you said "water," proceed to question 3.

> 3. If a red house is made from red bricks, and a blue house is made from blue bricks, and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?

>

>

>

>

>

> Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said, "green bricks," what the devil are you still doing reading these questions?????

>

> If you said "glass," then go on to Question 4.

> 4. Twenty years ago, a plane was flying at 20,000 feet over Germany. If you recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany. Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines failed. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing,

> decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately the third engine fails before he has time to attempt an emergency landing, and the plane crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and West Germany.

>

> Where would you bury the survivors?

> . . . in East Germany or West Germany or in "no man's land"?

>

>

>

>

>

>

> Answer: You don't, of course, bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else, you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated.

>

> If you said, "Don't bury the survivors," proceed to the next question.

>

>

>

> 5. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60 of a degree every minute how many degrees will the hour hand move in one hour?

>

>

>

>

>

> Answer: One degree. If you said, "360 degrees" or anything other than "one degree," you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you are obviously out of your league. Turn in your pencil, and exit the room.

>

> Everyone else proceed to the final question.

>

> 6. Without using a calculator -- You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, 17 people get on the bus. In Reading, six people get off the bus, and nine people get on. In Swindon, two people get off and four get on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea, three people get off and five people get on. In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven.
