    Fast Questions
    -
    Here's a little test of four questions. Your replies must be spontaneous and immediate, with no deliberating or wasting time. And no cheating.


    Marks, set...GO!!!

    1: You are competing in a race on a straight racetrack, and overtake the runner lying in second place. In which position are you now?

    Answer: 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.

    Next question...

    2: If you overtake the last runner, what position are you now in?

    Answer: If you answered second-last, once again you're completely wrong. Think about it...How can you overtake the person coming last? If you're behind them then they can't be last. The answer is impossible!!

    Anyway, here's another to try, don't take any notes or use a calculator, and remember your replies must be instantaneous. Take heart!!

    3:
    Take 1000. Add 40.
    Add another 1000.
    Add 30. 1000 again.
    Plus 20. Plus 1000.
    And plus 10.

    What is the total?

    Answer: 5000o_O 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...

    4: Marie's father has five daughters:

    1. Chacha
    2. Cheche
    3. Chichi
    4. Chocho
    5. o_O?

    Question: What is the fifth daughter's name? Think quickly. You'll find the answer below...

    Answer: Chuchuo_O WRONG! It's obviously Marie! Read the question properly!

    Sarcasm aside, if you've answered NONE of these questions correctly, then you're probably in good company! Tricky questions (answered FAST) are like mental illusions -- fooling the brain.

    For example: When I used to do dishes by hand still, and wanted this tedious task done FAST - I lost more dishes in a week
    than a cat it's fur in shedding season ! :D:D:D
