LOL, I got all of the obvious answers. If it said take your time I may have done better, but I was trying to answer quickly! lol

Fred said...

2/4. I need to go back to school.

Ellen said...

Ashamed here too!

Goan Pao said...

I got a 100% though I remember arguing with my friends oer some of the questions the last time I took the test...
For example if you overtake the last person...what if your not part of the race and join in the second lap, technically there is a last person in the race and you could overtake him/her. This is what happens when I read boggling questions on a monday morning( actually its 2 PM, but its still Monday)

Tumbleweed said...

damn I'm slow! I missed the first and last one. Shit!

jamwall said...

my brain is melting..

BeckEye said...

Yeah, I screwed up the one about overtaking the last person and the math question. Anything involving math will get me every time.

Technically, if you're entered in a race, but you get there late for some reason you wouldn't be counted as one of the runners on the track, so you could hurry up to get there and overtake the last person. Then you'd be in the race and 2nd to last. SO there. :)

Alistair! said...

Ther was a quiz!!? Shit!

coach said...

Good to see you again!

Tumble ~ You are not slow, seems as though you are of the norm! ;)

Jams ~ Oh....no, don't let it happen! It will be ok!

I did this off the top of my head, as you suggested. I got them all wrong, but I laughed out loud at each one, a great start to the day.
