How Smart Are You?

To take the "test," please don't scroll down to the answer until you have arrived at an answer!


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!


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.
Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person? YOU are 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?


Fourth Question:
Mary's father has five daughters:
1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.
What is the name of the fifth daughter?
(a, e, i, o, u)?




Answer:
Nunu? NO! Of course, not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again.

Well, I got a couple of them.....

Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person? YOU are the last person.
If I am leading the race and I overtake the last person, I have LAPPED the last person and am still the leader.

Hence you CAN overtake the last person. So there...

Peace,
Mike

I got 'em all, but I've seen it before. (I didn't remember it all, but I knew there was a trick to each of them!)

... but I know for sure I got the first one and the fourth one correct the first time (I was a math minor!!!)

Misty, Please don't use Mike's corner without permission. He has had it decorated, and has purchased a recliner and a big screen tv. You understand, I'm sure!

p.s. He spends so much time there.... I just couldn't say "no."
