A Bonus Question . . . to help keep you out of the drop out factory!

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 who wants to buy a pair of sunglasses.

How does the blind man indicate what he wants?




Answer to the first question:

If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!

Try not to screw up next time. Now let's see how did you do on the second question.


Answer to the second question:

If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again! Tell me, just how can you overtake the LAST person?

You're not very good at this, are you?


Answer to the third question:

Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.

If you don't believe it, check it with a calculator!Today is definitely not your day, is it? Maybe you'll get the last question right . . . maybe.

Did you Answer Nunu?

NO, that's not right! Of course it isn't. Her name is Mary. Read the question again!
