Presence of Mind Test

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?


















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 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?


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?




Fourth Question:


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





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 shopkeeper and the purchase is
done.

Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of
sunglasses, how should he express himself?


















He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.
