HUMOR: Trick Questions
Josh 201604 KWP
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!!!

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 answers

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?

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

Wasn't that fun?

i got the 3rd one right, and i'm not that bueno @ math! =P

i got the last one right! i am the ruler of the universe.. he he...

Then why haven't you been replying to my galactiMail requests for subsidization of my space-drive research? :)

I am the master of a different universe. Sorry, I'll ask the other masters, he he.

Well, I expected the ANDROID to get it right.... :)

Er, hang on a bit....

First Question:
"If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong!"
Not absolutely right. If you were racing round a track, you could be overtaking the person who is second as a result of lapping them, in which case you are DEFINITELY first!

Second Question:
"If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong."
Again, not necessarily the case. I could be racing round a track again, and be in second place in a race with three people. If you overtake the person in last place as a result of lapping them, you am STILL second to last. You're also second, but that's beside the point.

Fourth Question:
"NO! Of course, not. Her name is Mary."
Not necessarily. The fifth daughter could be called anything. The father may have decided to call her NuNu to keep his idiotic pattern going, but he may not have. He may have called his fifth daughter, George, Clive, Kevin, or any traditional boys name he preferred as well. It's a free country. He can do what he likes in this respect. Just as he did when he named his son Mary. Cruel, but entirely possible.

Re: Er, hang on a bit....

I'll grant you #1, however, the EARTH IS STILL FLAT! *stomp*

#2, "you am?" What am you? We'll need to track down all of the people who forwarded this on to see if the original writer could work in "straight track" somehow.

#3, While Kimberly, Shelly, Shelby, Casey and other names can be both male/female, we're not talking about Moonunit Zappa, so common gender semantics are assumed.

Still, you're a whore for posting anonymously.
