Test for Dementia

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. OK?


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

Second Question:
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?
(scroll down)













~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~





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 arithmetic! 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 answer.....









~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


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?
Maybe you'll get the last question right....
....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?







~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Did you Answer 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!

    Test for Smart People..... 1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?






    ........................................................................................................






    .......................................................................................................












    ..............................................................












    ..................................................
    The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and
    close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things
    in an overly complicated way.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I got 1, 2 and 4 right. Not too shabby. :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?


















    Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the
    refrigerator?
    Wrong Answer.
    Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in
    the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through
    the repercussions of your previous actions.

    3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend
    except one. Which animal does not attend?






















































    Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator.
    You just put him in there. This tests your memory.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly,
    you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.
    4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and
    you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?





























































    Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not
    been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting.
    This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.
    According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the
    professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers
    got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively
    disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a
    four-year-old.

    I got all of them right.

    :cool:.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Well question one and two are flawed because 1) The answer is first, if you overtook someone you will be first hence why they are the second person because you have just over taken them

    and then question 2) The person is Last because you did just overtake them when they were the second last person racing!


    Got the other questions right though

    to be first you would have to overtake the first person ...as it is your replacing the second person ...who is now third.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Not a single correct answer. Dear oh dear...

    On the "dementia" test: I got them all right except the last one (with the blind person). /me slaps forehead
    I thought the answer to it would be "A blind person doesn't need sunglasses".
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Got the maths one wrong. Everything else is all good though. My friends and I used to do shit like this to each other when camping, so I got used to games like these a while ago.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Oh dear. For the first question I thought 3rd...
    and for the third question I got 8090.... :blush: (can I be let off for that one?? I do have discalculia ).
    Didn't get the others right either. D'oh!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I got the maths one right, but only cause I saw it last week...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?

    Quite easily. You lap them. Which makes you in any position that's lapped the last person.
