elow are four ( 4 ) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of themimmediately. OK?
Let's find out just how clever you really are....

First Question:

Y
ou 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 next time.
Now answer the second question, but
don't take as much time as you took for the first question,OK?

Second Question:

I
f you overtake the last person, then you are...?
(scroll down)

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:

V
Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

Take

Did you get 5000 ?
The correct answer is actually 4100.

If you don't believe it, check it with a calculator!
....Maybe.
Fourth Question:

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

Nunu?
NO!
Of course it isn't. Her name is Mary.Read the question again!Okay, now the 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?

He just has to open his mouth and ask...
It's really very simple.... Like you!

PASS THIS
ON TO FRUSTRATE THE
SMART PEOPLE

It's easy to get the maths one wrong. What you probably did was added correctly until you got to 4090 then added 10 and mistook the value placement, making it 5000 rather than 4100. Easy mistake when doing it in the head.
