Answer the following 4 questions + bonus questions instantly (no pausing).



[FONT=C! omic Sans MS][FONT=C! omic Sans MS]First Question:[/FONT][/FONT]

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















Answer:
If you answered that you are first, you are
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...?
(scroll)

















Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, you're WRONG again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?


Third Question:
Note: This must be done in your head only .
Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator.


Take
1000and add 40to 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...












Did you get
5000 ?

The correct answer is actually 4100.




If you don't believe it, check it with a calculator!
Today is definitely not your day, is it?



Fourth Question:


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









Did you Answer Nunu?
WRONG!!!

Her name is
Mary. Read the question again!



bonus round:


A
mute person goes into a shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By
imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully
expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is
done.

Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of
sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?









Open his mouth and ask!! Simple!

i got the "mary" one right, i got the rest wrong... but i wasn't taking the time to figure out the "trick" to each question, i did what it said and tried them as quickly as possible... i had to do the 4100 on the calculator twice... "how can that be!!!!" :(
