Test for Dementia

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,

then you are absolutely wrong!
If you overtake the second person and you
take his place, you are second!

Try not to mess up next time.
Now answer the second question,

but don’t take as much time as you took for
the first question, OK ?

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

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

Third Question:

Very tricky arithmetic! Note: This must be done in
your head only Do NOT use paper and pencil or a
calculator. 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?

Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.

If you don’t believe it, now check it with a calculator!

Today is definitely not your day, is it?
Maybe you’ll 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?

Did you Answer Nunu?
NO! Of course it isn’t.

Her name is Mary. Read the question again!

Okay, now the bonus round:

A mute person goes into a shop and wants to buy a
toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing his

teeth he successfully expresses himself to the
shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to
buy a pair of sunglasses. How does HE indicate what
he wants?

He just has to open his mouth and ask…
It’s really very simple….
