Test for Dementia             
Below are four (3 ) 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.   
    Ready?                                                        GO!!!     

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!

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

    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...?

    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 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 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000 Now add 10. What is the total?


    Scroll down for answer.            



    Did you get 5000 ?



    The correct answer is actually 4100.
Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day. [/size]

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.
