    Dementia Quiz

    Below are four (4) questions and a Bonus question to test your perception, reasoning and the quickness of your logical processing.
    They are stated simply so you should try to answer them instantly.
    To assure the accuracy of the results, you should not take your time , but instead, answer each of them immediately.

    OK?


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


    Ready? GO!!! (scroll down slowly to uncover Q's and A's )














    First Question :

    You are a participant in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?


    Wait!
































































    _______________









    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 :
    I f you overtake the last person, then you are...? (scroll down)














































































    Wait! _______________









    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?
























































































    Scroll down for the correct answer.....
    _______________









    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, and ???

    What is the name of the fifth daughter?


    Wait! _______________






























































































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






    Okay, now the Bonus round,
    i.e., a final chance to redeem yourself:


    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 done.
    Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?



















































    Wait! _______________










































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


    PASS TH IS ON TO FRUSTRATE THE
    SMART PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE!
    Have a nice day, one and all.

    The confusion comes from when you add 1000 when you are at 3090. Your mind then adds 10 when you are at 4090 and the brain makes it sound like it will be 5000. when infact if you add 10 to 4090 you actually get 4100.

    Strange. I get it right in my head now. Must be because I know the answer I guess.

    I got 4100, not sure how to get anything else.

    1000
    + 40
    +1000
    + 30
    +1000
    + 20
    +1000
    + 10
    ---------
    4100

    Maybe in your mind you were adding 400, 300 200 & 100?
    I've no idea.


    Are these really trick questions?

    lol, it's just I don't see the trick in the 'trick questions', so many jokers on misc I wondered if it was a wind up.
    But then again I can't get how this moving girl can be seen moving clockwise or anticlockwise, I only see clockwise, I guess our brains all work differently.

    http://gifs.gifbin.com/1232469418_spinning.gif

    i think at 4090 'you' are sort of storing 2 digits which are counting up with 2 empty spaces.
    when the 10 comes to get added to 90 you cleverly remember that 100 means add 1 to column to left so you add it to next active column forgetting about the zero so adding to 4.

    ofc i am just guessing as never did that


    not sure on that rotating girl, atm i can only see clockwise too (and in epic plumber thread) but think when i saw it before i did see anticlockwise too but another image was used to activate it or something.

    I googled it and managed to get her to spin both ways - if already spinning clockwise, look at her head and squint your eyes, well, that worked for me. Then look at her feet and fully open your eyes and it should go back to clockwise (again, that worked for me).

    hmmm still clockwise, guess ill have to stand on my head

    True, but you've got redeeming qualities

    Reminded me of this classic for some reason.............


    You are on a gameshow, you have to choose one of 3 doors.

    1 of the doors has a brand new car behind it, and the other 2 are booby prizes

    After choosing your door, before you find out what's behind it the gameshow host opens one of the remaining 2 doors and reveals one of the 2 booby prizes.

    Now there remains 2 doors unopened, behind 1 of them is the car, and the other one is the booby prize

    Should you switch your choice of doors? or keep to the door you chose at the start? does it matter?

    Explain the reason for your answer

    ( some may know the answer to this already, if so, please keep schtum )
