Are you the Weakest Link?
« on: October 23, 2006, 10:50:03 pm »
Below are four (4) questions. You have to answer them instantly.
 
You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK? Ready?

First Question:

 

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

Quick - what's the answer....? Times ticking away....!

 

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!

 

We finally see who was last in line for intelligence.

 

Try not to mess 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...?

Tick...Tick....

 

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?

 

All looks and no logic!!!

 

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? Slow as a snail again....

 

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?

 

Still as slow as ever, I see...

 

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