Think You Are Smart ? Try Answering These

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:

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.
Check with your calculator!




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



Fifth Question:

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?


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

I like the five daughters question - I will use that one sometime!

You can overtake the last person if you lead him by a lap, at least in car racing.

Mary is a son, not a daughter.

Loved the questions. I did get the 4100 question correct. So proud. Loved the blind person question.

actually the questions were not that difficult at all, and what about the adding stuff?! this is mathematics, basics, it has not much to do with IQ.
