    Third Question:
    Very tricky arithmetic! 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?

    Okay, now the bonus round:

    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 in to the shop who wants to buy a pair of sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?

    Answer #2
    If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?

    Answer #3
    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.

    If you overtake the last person you are merely a lap ahead of that person and still in the same place you were before you overtook him...
