Are YOU the Weakest Link?

taxmama money funnies

Here is a very simple little test comprising of four questions to determine the level of your intellect. Your replies must
be spontaneous and immediate, with no deliberating or wasting time.  And no cheating.  On your mark, get set….GO!
1: You are competing in a race, and overtake the runner 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.
For the next question try not to be so dim.

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 over take the person coming last?   If you’re behind them then they can’t be last.  The answer is impossible!!  It would appear that thinking is not one of your strong points.  You would make a good weak link!!!

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. Add 1000 again.
Plus 20. Plus 1000.
And plus 10.
What is the total ?

Answer: 5000?  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. ????

Question: What is the fifth daughter’s name?
Think quickly…you’ll find the answer below…

Answer: Chuchu?

WRONG!   It’s obviously Marie!  
Read the question properly!
You are clearly the weakest link….GOODBYE

    I disagree with the answer for question #2. If the race is on an oval track, overtaking the last-place runner is possible. You would have lapped the last runner, and you could be in first place only if you were the first runner to lap the last runner.
