Celebrating Women...for the Real World
Monday, October 31, 2005 Do You Have Dementia?

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!!!

First Question:

You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

(Scroll down for 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...?

(Scroll down for 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. 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.)


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?

(Scroll down for answer.)


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 clerk, and the purchase is completed.

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

(Scroll down for answer.)


If you answered: He points to his head, and imitates the action of combing ones hair..then you are wrong!

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

These questions were so simple, but you really cant think logically can you?
