Below are 4 questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. Answer all of them immediately. I'll give you te answers later unless you heard it before.
PS: Don't forget to write your answers in white
First Question:
You're participating in a race. You overtake the scond person. What position are you in?
Second Question:(Don't take as much time as you took for the first question)
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

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's a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?


The confusing ones
2nd, 1st (you just lapped them), just ask him to get you sunglass because you aren't mute, you are blind:wink:

btw, Mary's a transsexual, the last daughter is Nunu:smile:


edit: just saw average's answer for the 2nd one, guess that'd be the correct one.

I still don't get how you could overtake the last person.

If you were to overtake them, that would mean you being behind them, and going in front of them. But you would have to be behind the last person to do that, making yourself last, but how do you overtake yourself?

You lapped them, on a circular track; that's why I thought you would have to be first, because if you overtake the last person (which indicates the position they held before you passed them), then that means either you had to be last and now they are last or you lapped them. Seems that the wording indicates what I said.

1. Second position
2. First position if its a multiple lap race, otherwise you can't overtake the last person.
3. 4100
4. Nunu
5. He's blind he doesn't need sunglasses! But he can just say it out loud.

So number 4 got me :P
And I just realized for number 2: It could be any position from first to second last

1000+40+1000+30+1000+20+1000=4090

4090 + 10 = 4100

I originally paid no attention to the first part of the question "mary's father" and just looked at the pattern of names. :rolleyes: It wasn't until I reread it later that I caught the obvious. :frown:
At least I can count. :biggrin:
The correct title of the quiz should be "how well do you pay attention?" :wink:
I'd white out paid no attention to the first part of the question "mary's father" and.
