Test for Dementia

Sunday, January 14, 2007

My baby sis sent me this joke. I only answered one right, and it was the math question. lol. But after the last couple of weeks, I'm not surprise a few braincells have gone begging. :-P

**Hold down your left click button on the mouse to highlight the answers

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....

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...?

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?

Answer: Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100. If you don't believe it, now check it with a calculator!

Today is definitely not your day, is it? Maybe you'll 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: Did you say, 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 wan ts to buy a pair of sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?

Answer: He just has to open his mouth and ask...

The math one was the only one I got right, too. *sigh*

Tara Marie said...

Okay, am I a geek? I got them all right.

Jaye said...

LOL Kat. Math was always your weakness.

Sasha, you and I both work with numbers/cash daily in real life, I think that's why that one was a no-brainer for us.

Better a geek that early stage dementia, Tara. ;-)
