Just an annoying test.

Here's one of those silly things that is always zipping around peoples e-mail accounts. I got it from my blogless brother Culzephyr, and I now pass it along to you...

Test for Dementia

Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question.

You have to answer them instantly.
You can't take your time,
answer all of them immediately.


Let's find out just how clever you really are.

No looking at the answers in advance.

Ready? GO!!! (scroll down)

First Question:

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

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...?


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?

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


NO! Of course not.

Her name is Mary.
Read the question again

Okay, now the bonus round:

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

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

I got most of them right....
Well, a couple.
Ok, I think one.

Ok, I got all of them right except for the math one. Any way I add them, it comes up 5000. Errr!!

The non "1000" numbers only add up to 100, they are only two-digit numbers, (40, 20...) not three-digit numbers (400, 200...)

Yeah, that one got me too.

Wow, I thought I was really thinking through that one...now it seems so simple.

Thanks for the quick reply...I would have racked my brain on that all night!

Okay, I commented on this one yesterday, and it appears my comment disappeared. I got all but the math one right.

Hmm... nice site but be more informative!

I got all but the first, but must admit I took my time. The correct answer to the math one is, of course, 2100, which I got. It is tricky.
