    Speed Round

    You are not allowed to use a writing device, calculator or computer to answer these questions. You must do it in your head and as quickly as possible!!!

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

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

    3)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?

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

    Re: Speed Round

    As you never specified "non circuited" in the question should my answer to number 2 be Right(ish) rather than Wrong(ish) <img src=/S/devil.gif border=0 alt=devil width=15 height=15>
