How intelligent are you?

Below are four questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them INSTANTLY. You can't take your time, answer them all immediately.

OK?

Let's find out 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?



(Scroll down for answer)


















A

If you answered that you were first, then you are wrong! If you overake the second person and you take his/her place, you are second!


(Try not to screw up 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...? (Scroll down for answer)


















A


If you answered that you are second last, then you are wrong again. Just 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 calculator. Try it. Ready? Go!


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)




















A

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!

Fourth Question:

Mary's father has five daughters: Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono,....

What is the name of the fifth daughter?


(Scroll down for answer)




















A

Did you answer Nunu?
Well that's wrong!

Her name is Mary, read the question again!

Okay, now the bonus round.

There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully expresses himself to the assistant and the purchase is completed.

Now a blind man wishes to buy a comb. How should he express himself.



A



Yes I know, that's easy!

He just has to open his mouth and ask! He is blind, not mute!

How did you do?
