# Silly Quiz

Time for a silly quick quiz (of three questions).

Rules:
You must answer them as fast as possible (instantly).

First Question:

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

If you answer that you arrived first, then you are absolutely wrong!
Since you overtake the second and you take his/her place you arrived second!!!

Note: 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 then you arrive…?

If you answer that you arrived second last then you are wrong again.

Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST? The question is incorrect!

Third Question:

Note: This riddle must be done in your head and not using paper and a pen.
Try it now!

Take 1000 and add 40 to it.
Another 1000.

What is the total? (scroll down for answer)

Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.
Don’ t believe it? Check with your calculator!
The decimal sequence often confuses our brain, that always jumps to the highest decimals (100s instead of 10s).

1. “If you overtake the last then you arrive…?”
My answer: In the same position.
This is (easily) possible: the track is a loop with more than one lap (Formula1, etc..).

2. “You are participating in a race. You overtake the second. What position do you finish?”
That depends on what happens in the rest of the race. You overtake second, then they overtake you, you finish 3rd.
