How many did YOU get right?

Recommended Posts

Test for Dementia

Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them

instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately.


Let's find out just how clever you really are....

Ready? GO!!!

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 next time.

Now answer the second question, but don't take as much time as you took for

the first question, OK?

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 arithmetic! 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?

Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.

If you don't believe it, check it with a calculator! Today is definitely

not your day, is it? Maybe you'll get the last question right.... Maybe.

Fourth Question:

Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What

is the name of the fifth daughter?

Did you Answer Nunu? NO! Of course it isn't. Her name is Mary. Read the

question again!

Okay, now the bonus round:

A mute person goes into a shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating

the action of brushing his teeth he successfully expresses himself to the

shopkeeper and the purchase is


Next, a blind man comes into the shop that wants to buy a pair of

sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?


He just has to open his mouth and ask... It's really very simple....

well seeing how i wanted to test myself twice, i copied it all to notepad, then removed all the answers without reading them.. wrote my "fast" answers first, then took my time and wrote down my "slow" answers.

First. got 3 out of the 5.. numbers 1, 2, and 4.

Second. got 4 out of the 5.. numbers 1, 2, 4, 5.

i suck with math lol.. i tried it 5 times in my head afte reading the answer... finally had to use a calculator.

very funny though

not cheater just experienced... used to have questions like this everyday in 8th grade.. they're a lot harder if someone reads them to you rather then if your'e reading them..

take these for example...

An electric train is moving north at 100kph and a wind is blowing to the west at 10kph. Which way does the smoke blow?
A farmer had 15 sheep, and all but 8 died. How many are left?

or my favorite, it was in Die Hard 3.

As I was going to St. Ives

I met a man with seven wives

The seven wives had seven sacks

The seven sacks had seven cats

The seven cats had seven kits

Kits, cats, sacks and wives

How many going to St. Ives?
