A friend of mine writes a column in the local paper and it had these questions see if you can get them right...
Answers at the bottom of the page....don't peek

Here are the four basic questions followed by the answers.
1.You are running a race and overtake the second person. What position are you in?
2. If you overtake the last person what position are you in?
3. Now this is simple arithmetic. So remember, use your head only, no artificial help. Try this. Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000, now add 30. Add another 1000, now add 20 and add another 1000. Tack on 10 and tell me instantly, what is the total?
4. Mary's father has five daughters. Their names are Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono and one more. Tell me please, what is the fifth daughter's name?
Now check you answers against the true ones.

1. If you answered first, you are wrong. If you overtake the second person you are second.
2. No, you are not second to last. Where would you come from to overtake the last runner?
3. Did you get 5,000? I must confess, I did the first time. The correct answer is 4,100. Take your pencil and check it.
4. Did you answer Nunu? I hope not for the fifth daughter's name is Mary. Read the question again.
OK, now here's a chance to redeem yourself with the bonus question.

A mute person goes into a shop to buy a toothbrush. He imitates the action of brushing his teeth, the shopkeeper understands and the purchase is completed.

Next, a blind person enters the shop to buy a pair of sunglasses. How does he make his wishes known?
It's really very simple.
He opens his mouth and asks for them.
