Test Your Intellect
This was sent to me by Matt Hendricks via email on August 16, 2002.
Here is a very simple little test comprised of four questions to determine
the level of your intellect. Your replies must be spontaneous and immediate,
with no deliberating or wasting time... And no cheating!
Note: To keep you honest I have hidden the answers. To see the answer just
You are competing in a race and overtake the runner who is in second place.
In which position are you now?
If you overtake the last runner, what position are you now in?
For this one.... Don't take any notes or use a calculator, and remember your
replies must be instantaneous.
Take 1000. Add 40. Add another 1000. Add 30. 1000 again. Plus 20. Plus 1000.
And plus 10. What is the total?
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.
Answer 1: If you answered that you're now coming first then 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.
Answer 2: If you answered second-last, once again you're 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.
Answer 3: 5000? Wrong again! The correct answer is 4100. Try again with a
good calculator. Today is clearly not your day. Although you should manage
to get the last question right...
Answer 4: Chuchu? Nope It's obviously Marie! Read the question again.
Hope you enjoyed this litte test....
