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!
Second Question: If you overtake the last person, then you areÃ¢â‚¬Â¦?
Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?
Third Question: Very tricky math! Note: 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.
Fourth Question: MaryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.
Okay, now the bonus round: There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done. Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?
Answer: He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.
