Dementia Test

My apologies for this.

My friend, the infamous "L", showed me this last night. I failed miserably. Then it came in email from my sister. You may have gotten it already, if not, have fun.

Dementia test

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.

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

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?

Answer: Nunu?

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.
