    Test your witts!

    Here are a couple of questions to test how sharp you are!

    1. Before Mount Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain on earth?

    2. In what year did Christmas and New Year's fall in the same year?

    3. How many animals of each gender did Moses take into the ark?

    4. Which is more correct to say: "The yolk of the egg are white" or "The yolk of the egg is white"?

    How may did you get right!!!
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Re: Test your witts!

    Reminds me of this:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">
    One day God calls down to Noah and says, "Noah me old china, I want you to make me a new Ark".

    Noah replies, "No probs God, me old Supreme Being. Anything you want.. After all, you're the guv" ..

    But God interrupts, "Ah, but there's a catch." This time Noah, I want not just a couple of decks, . . I want 20 decks one on top of the other".

    "20 DECKS!", screams Noah.

    "Well, OK Big Man whatever you say. Should I fill it up with all the animals just like last time?"

    "Yep, that's right, well . . sort of right . . this time I want you to fill it up with fish", God answers.

    "Fish?", queries Noah

    "Yep, fish . . well, to make it more specific Noah, I want carp - wall to wall, floor to ceiling - Carp!"

    Noah looks to the skies. "OK God my old mucker, let me get this right, you want a New Ark?"

    "Check".

    "With 20 decks, one on top of the other?".

    "Check".

    "And you want it full of Carp?".

    "Check".

    "Why?" asks the perplexed Noah, who was slowly but surely getting to the end of his tether


    "Dunno", says God, "I just fancied a Multi-Storey Carp Ark".</span hide>

    Re: Test your witts!

    He asked for how many of "each type", not how many of each species

    Re: Test your witts!

    Actually, you probably mean Gender!...species and type are the same thing (in the context of the question!)
    If it is type then who knows.....millions. But then again...I'm probably misunderstanding the question! <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Re: Test your witts!

    I always seem to run foul of the "not quite correctly worded" problems.

    3a How many animals of each species did Noah take into the ark?
    By that, I mean if Noah took seventeen tigers into the ark, then the answer would be seventeen.

    Does that help?

    I think it was about 11 humans, but it's ages since I read that book.

    Re: Test your witts!

    An answer of 2 is mostly correct. Some types of animals went on the ark in sets of 2, others went on in a different quantity. Which and how much?
