    Here is a sample mensa quiz, my quiz was harder!!! I only got one wrong #2! I am mensa material!

    Knock em dead!


    1. If two typists can type two pages in two minutes, how many typists will it take to type 18 pages in six minutes?

    2. If it were two hours later, it would be half as long until midnight as it would be if it were an hour later. What time is it now?

    3. Pear is to apple as potato is to: (a) banana, (b) radish, (c)

    strawberry, (d) peach, (e) lettuce.

    4. Continue the following number series with the pair of numbers below that best continues the series: 10 3 9 5 8 7 7 9 6 . . .

    (a) 11, 5; (b) 10, 5; (c) 10, 4; (d) 11, 6.

    5. Which of the following is least like the others? (a) poem, (b) novel,

    (c) painting, (d) statue, (e) flower.

    6. What is the following word when it is unscrambled: HCPRAATEU

    7. What is the number that is one half of one quarter of one tenth of 400?

    8. Which of the sentences below means approximately the same as the proverb: ``Don`t count your chickens until they are hatched.``

    (a) Some chickens have double yolks, so you can`t really count eggs and chickens.

    (b) You can`t walk around the henhouse to count the eggs because it will disturb the hens and they won`t lay eggs.

    (c) It is not really sensible to rely on something that has not yet happened and may not ever happen.

    (d) Since eggs break so easily, you may not be accurate in your count of future chickens.

    9) The same three-letter word can be placed in front of the following words to make a new word: ---light, ---break, ---time.

    : “Grow your own dope. Plant a liberal.”
    ” Obummercare, 20 percent of the time it works everytime.

    Holy Cow!

    You are a beast, aren't you?

    I did not say that *I* am the one in here who belongs to MENSA ... far from it ... but I do remember who does.

    OK, that being said, will also have a go at it tomorrow as well!

    1. If two typists can type two pages in two minutes, how many typists will it take to type 18 pages in six minutes?
    Each page = 2 typist-minutes; 18 pages = 36 typist-minutes; 6 minutes -> 6 typists

    2. If it were two hours later, it would be half as long until midnight as it would be if it were an hour later. What time is it now?

    3. Pear is to apple as potato is to:
    (b) radish

    4. Continue the following number series with the pair of numbers below that best continues the series: 10 3 9 5 8 7 7 9 6 . . .
    (a) 11, 5; (b) 10, 5; (c) 10, 4; (d) 11, 6.

    5. Which of the following is least like the others?
    (e) flower.

    6. What is the following word when it is unscrambled: HCPRAATEU

    7. What is the number that is one half of one quarter of one tenth of 400?
    =5

    8. Which of the sentences below means approximately the same as the proverb: ``Don`t count your chickens until they are hatched.``
    (c) It is not really sensible to rely on something that has not yet happened and may not ever happen.

    9) The same three-letter word can be placed in front of the following words to make a new word: ---light, ---break, ---time.
    = 'day'

    Six for nine. Best I can do in 5 minutes...
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.
    In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.

    Okay ... Here you go. How'd I do?

    1. If two typists can type two pages in two minutes, how many typists will it take to type 18 pages in six minutes?

    Answer: 3

    2. If it were two hours later, it would be half as long until midnight as it would be if it were an hour later. What time is it now?

    Answer: ..... see end of post.

    3. Pear is to apple as potato is to: (a) banana, (b) radish, (c)
    strawberry, (d) peach, (e) lettuce.

    Answer: radish

    4. Continue the following number series with the pair of numbers below that best continues the series: 10 3 9 5 8 7 7 9 6 . . .

    (a) 11, 5; (b) 10, 5; (c) 10, 4; (d) 11, 6.

    2nd 4th 6th & 8th . numbers go up by 2 each time ... and the 1st. 3rd. 5th. 7th. & 9th go down by 1 ...
    So answer is (a) 11, 5

    (c) painting, (d) statue, (e) flower.

    Need more time, plus a pencil for this one!

    (1/10th of 400 =40 ... 1/4 of 40=10 ... 1/2 of 10=5)
    So answer is: 5


    8. Which of the sentences below means approximately the same as the proverb: ``Don`t count your chickens until they are hatched.``

    (a) Some chickens have double yolks, so you can`t really count eggs and chickens.

    Well ...

    I don't know how I did, but at least I answered all nine of them!

    OK, my first answer differs, and will have to go back and check rest. Cleaning lady is due in 20 mins.

    Can't wait to see the answer to #6 ...

    Have run out of combinations to try, and paper on which to try it!

    I even kept in mind that PH can sound like an "F" and the letters EAU can sound like an "O."

    I give up, it is a real beast!!!
