Default OT.. 4 Easy Questions

Are you the weakest link? Below are four (4) questions.

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!!! (scroll down)



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: 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?






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?






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.

This is driving me nuts, when I do the math one in my head, I get 5000, but when I do it on the calculator, I get 4100. Where is the trick?
