I thought this is a small bit of brain teasing for fun, I challenge you to get these questions right. You only have to answer only 4 questions in 60 seconds. It’s very easy and no prior knowledge is required! Don’t be naughty by peeking at the answers at the bottom and you are not allowed more than 60 seconds! So without further ado, let’s go! Maths question (no calculator!): Start with 1000, add 40 then add another 1,000 and 30 and then plus 1000 and 20 with another 1000 and 10. What’s the answer? Second question: You overtook the runner in the second position, what is your position? Third question: You overtook the last runner, what is your position? Last question: Mary’s dad has 5 daughters. The first is called Nana, the second Nene, the third Nini, the fourth Nono. What is the fifth daughter called? Answer: 1) 4100, 2) second position, 3) You can’t overtake the last person!, 4) Mary. It’s very easy and some of you may have seen it before from forward mail but these are used to test applicants in my firm this year. The result? You would be surprised that less than 20% of the people (who think themselves extremely bright) applying to my investment bank got them all right!
