    [FONT=&quot]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 screw up next time.
    Now answer the second question,
    but [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] don't take as much time as you took for the first question,OK ?[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]

    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Third Question:
    V ery tricky arithmetic! Note: This must be done in your head only
    .

    Add another 1000 . Now add 20
    . Now add another 1000
    Now add 10 .. What is the total?[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]

    Did you get 5000 ?[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]

    The correct answer is actually 4100.
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]
    If you don't believe it, check it with a calculator!
    Today is definitely not your day, is it?
    Maybe you'll get the last question right....
    Maybe.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]

    Fourth Question:

    4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?





    [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]

    Did you Answer Nunu?
    NO!
    Of course it isn't.
    Her name is Mary.! Read the question again!
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]
    Okay, now the bonus round:[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]

    imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully
    expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is
    done. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of
    sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]
    He just has to open his mouth and ask...
    It's really very simple.... Like you![/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]




    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    KEEP THIS GOING TO FRUSTRATE THE

    If I knew there was going to be a test today I would have started drinking at 5 instead of 10.

    with that being said I gave up on the first question.

    WRONG! If you overtake the second person, then you take his place, but you never said that the second person was actually in second place, you could just be second to last. Ha, your test fails.

    Same here, but I like that one. Though I answerd "first" for the question "if you overtake the last person", assuming you had just lapped them and no one else could keep up.
