Dementia Questions

First question:

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

Spoiler:
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 in second place!

Try to do better 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....?


Spoiler:
answer: if you answered that you are second to last, then you are.....
Wrong again. Tell me sunshine, 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 another 1000 now add 30.
Add another 1000. Now add 20 ... Now add another 1000.
Now add 10... What is the total?


Spoiler:
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, and ???
What is the name of the fifth daughter?


Spoiler:
did you answer nunu?



No! Of course it isn't.
Her name is mary! Read the question again!



************************************

Okay, now the bonus round,
Ie. A final chance to redeem yourself:

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 pair of sunglasses; how does he indicate what he wants?

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

Spoiler:
it's really very simple
He opens his mouth and asks for it...


**********************************



Spoiler:
does your employer actually pay you to think?? If so do not let them see your answers for this test!

Pass this on to frustrate the smart people in your life!


Spoiler:

And i got everyone of them wrong!

I got all but one of them right. The one I got wrong was the second one, but the quiz gets it wrong too!

The correct answer to the second question:
Spoiler:
You could be in any position except last, as you've just lapped the last person in the race.

Assuming the race is circuitous and lapping can be done. My answer was that you were obviously in the wrong race

Paul - you're definitely in the wrong race, perhaps last week's Grand Prix, instead of the marathon....

Upon this, I've stumbled, too. Thought it too sophisticated a question: who can be behind the last one? Uuh?

Wrong again. Tell me sunshine, how can you overtake the last person??

GeoffC; you just lowered my self-esteem considerably by this quiz. Thanks.
I won't even tell my score, but 8.00 in the morning is waaay too early to do this; I'll take it again this evening and let you all know.

Number 3 is one of those that makes one seriously doubt ones sanity - it really did take the use of a calculator for me to convince myself the error of my mental arithmetic, of which I am usually fairly good.

Even when I just added the 1000's by themselves and then added up the other numbers I still got it wrong !!!!

Shame on moi.....
