Fun quiz

Okay, this is not a joke but a set of serious questions.If you answer them correctly you may not laugh but if you get them wrong you are sure to laugh (at least smile), and that is the reason why we have included them in this section.

So here are the questions - there are four of them. You have to answer them quickly.

First question:

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

second question:

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

Third question:

You cannot use paper, pencil or a calculator for this. The question is: If you take 1000 and add 40 to it, then add another 1000, add 30, add another 1000, add 20, now add another 1000, and finally add 10, what is the total?

Fourth question:

Namita's father has five daughters and four of them are Nana, Nene, Nini and Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?

And here are the answers:





For the first question did you answer that you will be first. How is that possible? If you overtake the second person, you take that person's place and you will be second!

For the second question did you answer you will be second to last? HOW CAN YOU OVERTAKE THE LAST PERSON?

For the third question was your answer 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100.

Did you say Nunu to the fourth question? The name of the fifth daughter, of course, is Namita!

Practising short jumps

A hunter was passing through the jungle in his jeep.

The hunter's gun had developed a snag and, so, he had to return without any hopes of game that day.

Just then the jeep spluttered and came to a halt.

Tigers had been sighted near the spot and the hunter, without his gun, felt vulnerable.

"Drat!" the hunter exclaimed but he had to get down to see what the problem was.

The problem was fortunately a minor one and the hunter could repair the jeep within a few minutes.

But as he was about to hop into the jeep and drive away, he sighted a tiger!

The tiger was only 20 feet away from him and it was crouching ready to attack.

The hunter was frozen in his tracks. The tiger with lightning speed, leaped!

But the hunter was saved. The reason being that the tiger's leap was so huge that it carried the beast over the hunter and it landed 20 feet away from him. The tiger was so disappointed at missing his prey because of such a huge leap, that he disappeared into the jungle in embarrassment.

The hunter did not have time even to sigh in relief. He hopped into the jeep, and sped off.

A few days later the hunter had to pass by the same spot. This time he ensured that his gun and his jeep were in top condition.

When he passed by the spot the hunter saw a strange sight!

He saw a tiger ..... the hunter was sure that it was the same tiger that had tried to attack him.

The tiger was hopping .... it was practising short jumps!
