You Are The Weakest Link

For those of you who doesn't watch much TV, this is the newest craze (Weakest Link).

I 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. O.K.?

Let's find just how clever you really are - Ready? GO!!!!!


First Question:

You are participating in a race. You overtake the second. What position do you finish?

NOW! See the answer below ...














If you answer that you arrived first, then you are absolutely wrong!!! Because 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:

If you overtake the last place runner, then you arrive ...?













If you answer that you arrived second to last then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST !!!! Unless you are first and are lapping that runner.

The answer is wrong! You're not very good at this are you???



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? (scroll down for 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).

That should have you in a bad mood for the rest of the day!!!




You are the weakest link. Goodbye.
