am going to ask you three questions.
And you have to answer them instantly.
You can't take your time you have to answer immediately.
Let's find out just how clever you really are ........
First Question:
You are participating in a race. You overtake the second.
What position do you finish?
Second Question:
If you overtake the last then you arrive...?

Third Question
Subject: *Very very Tricky maths!
Note: This riddle must be done IN YOUR HEAD ONLY and NOT using paper and a pen.
Try it.

Take 1000 and add 40 to it.
Now add another 1000.
Now add 30.
Another 1000.
Now add 20.
Now add another 1000.
Now add 10.


What is the total?
Answer to the Questions
NOW! See the answer below..
First Quetion Answer:

If you answer that you arrived first, then you are absolutely wrong!!!
Cause you overtake the second and you take his place so you arrived second!!!
To answer the second question don't take as much time as you took for the first question.
Second Question Answer:

If you answer that you arrived second last then you are wrong again.
Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST !!!! The question is wrong!
You're not very good at this are you???
Third Question Answer:

Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.
Don' t believe it? Check with your calculator!
The decimal sequence confuses our brain, that always jumps to the highest decimals (100s instead of 10s).
second chapter to fresh your mind

Answers:
