    Lightbulb Test for brain (Brain teasers)

    Hi Forum..
    I created this Thread to Test/flex our Brains..

    Below are seven questions .. you need to answer them within short possible time, so here they are...


    Question 1:

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


    Question 2 :
    If you overtake the last person, then you are...?


    Question 3 :
    Tricky arithmetic! Note: This must be done in your head only.
    Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. If you do...you've cheated and it ain't fun no more......

    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?


    Question 4 :......i know this is Cheap..

    Mary ' s father has five daughters: 1. Nana , 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.
    What is the ! name of the fifth daughter?


    Question 5 :

    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 HE indicate what he wants?


    Question 6 :

    You Travel to Africa, for a Safari with your Sweetie...
    After the days trip, its time to retire back home..
    Its already dark...just as you are about to step into your Cabin...The light Authorities fail and their is total darkness .

    Scenario :
    In your Pocket is your Matchstick box for your cigarette ...unfortunately you've got just one Match stick left...

    In your Cabin , you have ...
    1. A Gas Cooker
    2. A Kerosene Stove...( Equipment using wicks and kerosene to cook)
    3. A Candle stick
    4. An African Hurricane lamp...( Lantern )
    5. A designer Coal Chimney ( Fireplace) in the Living room

    Any mistake with your only match stick light going off due to delays, and you remain in total darkness for the rest of the day...

    Question :
    Which of all the appliances listed above would you Light first .


    Question 7 :

    Two friends who were fathers went for fishing with their sons. After an hour, Each individual caught ONE fish! They put them together in an ice bag. When they returned home they found there are only 3 fishes in the bag... ! How its possible if no fish was fallen or put back in river


    - - - Updated - - -


    Answers:

    1: second ( If you overtake second position you become 2nd.)
    2: first /There is no one behind the last person, hence it's impossible.
    3: 4100
    4: Mary
    5: he tells what he wants
    6: match stick
    7: Two fathers and their sons (so its basically Grandfather>son>grandson). Therefore, 3 people and 3 fishes


    - - - Updated - - -

    Another one...

    What does this message say?

    G T Y O R J O T E O U I A B G T


    Hint
    Count the letters and try splitting the letters up into groups.

    5. he takes off the sunglasses he is already wearing. blind people wear sunglasses. also he can probably talk.
    6. The matchstick. Then Probably I'd light the candle first and then gather small pieces of wood from the forest and use those as sticks which I'd light with the candle and then try to light the other things
    7. They are gay and have the same son
