1. ## IQ Test

Here are some questions. some might be easy but i am sure you will NOT get all right...
ok, here goes.

1) Some months have 30 days,some months have 31 days. How many months have 28 days?

2) If a doctor gives you 3 pills and tells you to take one pill every half hour, how long would it be before all the pills had been taken?

3) I went to bed at eight o'clock in the evening and wound up my clock and set the alarm to sound at nine o'clock in the morning. How many hours sleep would I get before being awoken by the alarm?

4) Divide 30 by half and add ten. What do you get?

5) A farmer had 17 sheep. All but 9 died. How many live sheep were left?

6) If you had only one match and entered a COLD and DARK room, where there was an oil heater, an oil lamp and a candle, which would you light first?

7) A man builds a house with four sides of rectangular construction, each side having a southern exposure. A big bear comes along. What color is the bear?

8) Take 2 apples from 3 apples. What do you have?

9) How many animals of each species did Moses take with him in the Ark?

10) If you drove a bus with 43 people on board from Chicago and stopped at Pittsburg to pick up 7 more people and drop off 5 passengers and at Cleveland to drop off 8 passengers and pick up 4 more and eventually arrive at Philadelphia 20 hours later, what's the name of the driver?

1) All of them. Every month has at least 28 days.
2) 1 hour. If you take a pill at 1 o'clock,then another at 1.30 and the last at 2 o'clock,they will be taken in 1 hour.
3) 1 hour. It is a wind up alarm clock which cannot discriminate between a.m. and p.m.
4) 70. Dividing by half is the same as multiplying by 2.
5) 9 live sheep.
6) The match.
7) White. If all walls face south, the house must be on the North Pole.
8) 2 apples. I HAVE 3 APPLES, YOU TAKE 2, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?
9) None. It was Noah, not Moses.
10) YOU are the driver.

2. I was about to post/respond but then I saw the answers which take away from the joy and excitement of the IQ test. Maybe you should post the answers later after a certain amount of replies.

3. 1) All of them. Every month has at least 28 days.
2) 1 hour. If you take a pill at 1 o'clock,then another at 1.30 and the last at 2 o'clock,they will be taken in 1 hour.

5) 9 live sheep.
6) The match.

8) 2 apples. I HAVE 3 APPLES, YOU TAKE 2, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?
9) None. It was Noah, not Moses.
10) YOU are the driver.

I've bolded the ones which I got right Although I did hear some of them before.

4. I got the exactly same correct vs. wrong answers as Dual-Catfish!

I was actually gonna bring up a thread about IQ-tests, because I've recently taken two IQ-tests which I believe showed a higher IQ than my true one.

At the first test, www.iqtest.com, my IQ was measured to 146, but probably a little higher, because they stated that if American English isn't your native language, you will probably score a little bit lower than your true IQ.

At the other test, http://www.geocities.com/capitolhill/1641/iqown.html, my IQ was measured to 160+.

This would mean that I have an IQ higher than 98% of the rest of the population, which I didn't expect.

Thus, I want to ask you to take these tests, or at least one, and announce what you got, to see if these tests really can be accurate.

5. this was not a real IQ test... just some q's for fun...
i also got about the same q's right... (i got 7 also wrong)

that's a pretty good score, considering the q's. are real IQ tests so tricky? i'll try taking the tests that Zewu gave links to...

6. Real IQ tests shouldn't be very "tricky". Or at least they should expect barely any real background knowledge, like advanced maths or so. Finding a pattern is an excellent example of such IQ tests.

7. 5) A farmer had 17 sheep. All but 9 died. How many live sheep were left?
I thought they are still left even though they are dead... aren't they?

9. Hmm, that's a good point. I never bothered reading the 'live' word.

that is the whole point, they want you to miss something... many of the things, we can answer, IF we read carefully.

11. I'm pretty all IQ tests online are worthless. Then again, most of the regular ones are too. They tend to be nonstandardized, and therefore worthless. If you wanna go to a shrink and get one to find out how smart you are, then you probably should keep in contact with him Especially if you are tempted to discuss it with others. Nobody cares, and most people lie. This wasn't directed towards anyone posting in this thread, but I think it came up a while ago

So, what's a 10? Engineer? Why engineer?... although, only they can be so picky about every little detail...

13. not just any engineer!!! a Software Engineer!!!

14. I got a 10, (admittedly, I had seen a few of them before), but it has absolutely nothing to do with IQ.

15. Try the iqtest.com test, and see how you do then.
