1. Be honest

How many can you get right? I got the last two, but I went through them fast as suggested.

This is good:

Here is a very simple little test comprised of four questions
spontaneous and immediate, with no deliberating or wasting
time... And no cheating!

1: You are competing in a race and overtake the runner lying
in second place. In which position are you now?

you're completely wrong. You overtook the second runner and
took their place, therefore you're coming second. For the
next question try not to be so dim.

2: If you overtake the last runner, what position are you
now in?

completely wrong. Think about it. How can you over take the
person coming last? If you're behind them then they can't be
last. The answer is impossible! It would appear that thinking
is not one of your strong points.

Anyway, here's another to try, don't take any notes or use a
calculator, and remember your replies must be instantaneous.
Take heart!

Plus 20. Plus 1000. And plus 10. What is the total?

again with a good calculator. Today is clearly not your day.
Although you should manage to get the last question right...

4: Marie's father has five daughters: 1. Chacha 2. Cheche 3.
Chichi 4. Chocho Question: What is the fifth daughter's name?
Think quickly... you'll find the answer below.

properly! You are clearly the weakest link....GOODBYE!

2. aww man... i bombed it all.

3. Got the top three. Got stupid on the last one for some reason.

I've got another simular set of questions if you'd care to see them.

4. Sure thing chuchu... post away.

5. after all those math classes is school I missed the 4100 question. I'm so embaresed

6. >> after all those math classes is school I missed the 4100 question. I'm so embaresed

Its not your math, its just the way in which the sentence is phrased.

Those are some pretty cool questions!

7. Got all but the last, but did that w/o thinking (like lots of stuff). Pretty tricky, Betazep. Maybe Clyde has an alternate explanation...

8. Heh, everyone else got all but the last, and I got only the last . I still don't get the 4100 one...guess I'll try it on a calculator...

9. Oooo, I get #3 now...damnit

10. >>>Got all but the last, but did that w/o thinking (like lots of stuff). Pretty tricky, Betazep. Maybe Clyde has an alternate explanation...

LOL.... I would say probably, but probables cannot exist unless science has defined them extensively. If science hasn't covered it, then it doesn't exist.

11. hehe... I got the first 3 as well... but the Chuchu answer is too stupid... also, for the sencond one, if you are a VERY fast runner and running around a track/field, you can be in 1st place and overtake the last runner, if you beat them by a lap... so that IS possible.

waiting...

13. Missed 3 and 4. I related 'take' to 'get', not as subtracting. Bah!

14. Got two and a half. 1 was easy, 3 was easy, 4 got me. However, for number two, if you overtake the last runner, you are still on the place you had before, as any runner can overtake the last one if the last one is slow enough to lose a whole round. Happends a lot in Formula 1 for example.

15. i got the secong and the 3rd one!!!

last one...i was so sure it was Chuchu!!
