# Staff IQ Test -This is very clever

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

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, and then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second! Try not to screw up in the next question.
To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.

Second Question:
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, and 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 math! Note: This must be done in your head only.

Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

Did you get 5000?
The correct answer is actually 4100.

Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?

Fourth Question:

Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.
What is the name of the fifth daughter?

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 one'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?

He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.

The only one i got right was the Mary one, and i dont have a clue how i got 5000 first time through :thinking: those are some weird questions

When I was applying for grad jobs I had to do aptitude tests that were sooooo difficult! and had to do like 30 in 18mins ect... well nerve racking at the start but things like these are easy now!

Got the mary one but miserably failed on the rest!!

To be fair, I knew the answers to 1 and 2 before I had reached the end (seen the questions before), and I completely knew the pitfall for the maths one. The Mary one I hadn't, but knew the logic of these questions is to make you feel you have worked something out - which would definately be the wrong answer. So when I looked and saw the AEIOU, I just knew that wasnt right and re-read and there was Mary shouting out loudly!

I got 1, 3 and the bonus one right...the maths one was easy, but then I taught myself to add VAT in my head (saddo that I am)....very good though for getting the grey matter going...can't believe I got the Mary one wrong when the answer was there!!!

Give 'em detention!!!

Its like one of those tests where at the start it says You have two minutes to complete this task...
1.Read all the way through before doing anything
2. Draw a circle
3. Draw it bigger
etc etc.
10. Don't make a mark on this piece of paper.

You see people furiously altering their piece of paper all the way through..then reading 10!

1.75, dont forget the decimal point:thumbsup:

I guess the reason people get 5000 is up to that point it's 4090 you add ten to which is easy to mistake for 4900+10.

Hmmm. Then it would be 4910!!!

All that happens is you get to 4090 and adding that 10 in your head, you forget its tens for some silly reason and carry it over as if it were 100s to get the 5000.
