Dementia Quiz

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below are four (4) questions and a Bonus question to test your perception, reasoning and the quickness of your logical processing.
They are stated simply so you should try to answer them instantly.
To assure the accuracy of the results, you should not take your time, but instead, answer each of them immediately .

OK?

Let's find out just how clever you really are....

First Question:

You are a participant 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 in second place!

Second Question :
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?
(scroll down)

Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are WRONG again. Tell me Sunshine, 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.

What is the total?

Scroll down for the correct answer.....

Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100

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

Fourth Question:

Mary's father has five daughters: 1.Nana,2.Nene,3.Nini,4.Nono, and ???

What is the name of the fifth daughter?

Did you Answer Nunu? Of course it isn't.
Her name is Mary! Read the question again!

Okay, now the Bonus round,
i.e., a final chance to redeem yourself:

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 opens his mouth and asks for it...

I didn't do so well on this test myself if it's any consolation

It's a trick people, run away, do not attempt, oh, by the way, i got them all wrong. I must be getting old or losing my mind, or a combination of both.

I missed the math one, ( yes I figured 5000) and the bonus question.

I have taken a number of Civil Service tests and the one thing I have learned is to pay VERY close attention to the wording. If it wasn't for those tests, I know I would have gotten them all wrong.

Dammitall, cabinover, I just turned 50 three weeks ago. I was feeling like crap about it. Then I was just starting to get over it when in the mail today I got my AARP membership request and I answered all your GD questions WRONG!

I don't know how old you are, Sonny, but your day is coming!

### Re: Dementia quiz for you older folks.

Just last week I was at the dentists office and picked up a PEOPLE magazine.

I recognized 4 faces in the entire magazine, starting with Michelle Obama and Cher.

I didn't feel like I was older than dirt until last week!

And, oh yes, I missed 4 of the questions...:>)
