Test for Dementia

Dementia Test – are you becoming slow and stupid with age already?



Test for Dementia

Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question.
You have to answer them as soon as possible.
You can't take a long time, answer all of them immediately, right away! OK?

Let's find out just how clever you really are. Ready? GO!!!


First Question: You are running in a race. You overtake (go in front of) the second person. What position are you in?

Answer: 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 in the next question. To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.
Second Question: If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person? You're not very good at this! Are you?


Third Question: Very difficult maths!
Note: This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

  • Take 1000 and add 40 to it.
  • Now add another 1000.
  • Now add 30.
  • Add another 1000
  • Now add 20.
  • Now add another 1000
  • Now add 10.
What is the total?

Answer: Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100. Don't believe it? Check with your calculator!

Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?
Fourth Question: Mary's father has five daughters:

Nana,
Nene,
Nini,
Nono.

What is the name of the fifth daughter?


Answer: Nunu? NO! Of course not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again.


Okay, now the bonus round:
There is a mute person (someone who can't talk) who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and he gets his toothbrush.

Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?

Answer: He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.
