    Hi,<br />lets check the intelligence of all the intelligent people<br />luck always keep smilin !!!!<br /><br /><br />Think You Are Clever?<br /><br />Below are 4 questions. Answer them instantly. You<br /><br />can't take your time.<br /><br /><br />Answer them immediately. No pencil or paper! OK? <br /><br />Let's find out just how smart and clever you really<br /><br />are. Ready? ... GO!!!<br /><br />FIRST QUESTION: You are participating in a race. <br /><br />You overtake the second person.<br /><br />What position are you in?<br /><br /><br />ANSWER: If you answer that you are first, then you are <br /><br />Absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person<br /><br />And you take his place, you are second! Try not to<br /><br />Screw up in the next question. <br /><br /> <br /><br /> <br /><br />To answer the second question, don't take as much<br /><br />time as you took for the first question. <br /><br />(You know you took too much time.)<br /><br />SECOND QUESTION: If you overtake the last person, then<br /><br />you are...?<br /><br /><br />ANSWER: If you answered that you are second to last,<br /><br />then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you<br /><br />overtake the LAST person?! <br /><br /><br />THIRD QUESTION: Very tricky math! Note: This must be<br /><br />done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or<br /><br />a calculator. Try it. <br /><br /><br />Take 1000 and add 40 to it.<br /><br />Now add another 1000.<br /><br />Now add 30.<br /><br />Add another 1000. <br /><br />Now add 20.<br /><br />Now add another 1000.<br /><br />Now add 10.<br /><br />What is the total?<br /><br /> <br /><br />ANSWER: Did you get 5000? The correct answer is<br /><br />actually 4100.<br /><br /><br />Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is <br /><br />definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last<br /><br />question right?<br /><br /> <br /><br /><br />LAST QUESTION: Mary's father has five daughters: <br /><br />Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono.<br /><br />What is the name of the fifth daughter?<br /><br /><br />ANSWER: Nunu? Nana? Nene? NONO! Of course not. The <br /><br />fifth daughter's name is Mary.<br /><br />Read the question again.<br /><br />You ARE the WEAKEST LINK!! Pass this along to someone<br /><br />else who could stand a little fun and a challenge today.<br />If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from<br />morons????? <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /><br />[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br /><br /><br />hsGoswami<br />ghemant@gmail.com
