Exercise Your Brain

We had some homegrown broccoli and cabbage for supper tonight along with a piece of ham. As broccoli is one of the dark green veggies that are suppose to be good brain food, I thought I’d ask a few questions tonight to stimulate your brain and reasoning ability. I’ll provide the answers next time.

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

2. If you overtake the last person then you are …..?

3. Very strict arithmetic note: This must be done in your head only. Do not use paper and pencil or a calculator. Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Now add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?

4.Mary’s father has 5 daughters: a. Nana b. Nene c. Nini d. Nono and e. ????

Bonus question:
A mute person goes into a shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done. Next, a blind man comes into the shop and wants to buy a pair of sunglasses; How does he indicate what he wants?

Keep your fork
