Question Weakest link.

Are you the weakest link? Below are four (4) questions. 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 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
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.


Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your
day. Maybe you will get the last question right?









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

Re: Weakest link.

Thanks all -

I have to confess that I slipped on one.

Should be fun (or not) with the Christmas cracker jokes.

Regards. Barr1e
