### Test for Dementia

You all did so well on the other test...

Below are four 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 screw up in the next question.

To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.

Second Question:

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

then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST
Person?

You're not very good at this! Are you?

Third Question:

Very tricky math! 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 10. What is the total?

Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.

Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today
is definitely not your day. Maybe you will 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?

NO! Of course not.

Her name is Mary. Read the question again.

Okay, now the bonus round:

There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush.
By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully
expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy! a pair
of sunglasses, how should he express himself?

He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.

Hmmmm..... I didn't do so well. GEM
