Question 1. You are participating in a race. You overtake the second
person. What position are you in?

Question 2. If you overtake the last person, then you are . . . ?

Question 3. This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and
pencil or a calculator. And go quickly. 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?

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

Answer to 1: 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!

Answer to 2: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are
wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?!

Answer to 3. Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100.

Answer to 4. : Nunu? NO! Of course not. Her name is Mary.

1) Would that be the second person singular or the third person?

2) Depends on which way you are running.

3) Sorry, still here. Where were you looking to go?

4) Again, who said those are her sisters?

There is worse than wrong... all the coins I've dropped here

1)Yeah, got it easy
2)"Tell me how can you overtake the last person?" By lapping them. I still don't know what position I'm in though.
3)Umm, why on earth would I get 5000? Unless my brain turned to cheese, melted and dribbled out my ear I think adding up is hardly beyond my means.
4) That's a new one.
