    For the hole one, it would have no dirt in it because it is a hole.
    For the sons one, they would be part of triplets or quads or something, so not technically twins

    its cz it asked how much dirt the hole had in it/

    if you dig a hole, you`re taking the dirt out. hence, there is no dirt in the hole.

    the only one i got wrong was the random Parents thing. waht what the ans to that?? liek how does it work>

    Wow, this is horrible. Listing the answers in multiple choice format ruins the "trick question" effect. I got 90%.... only because #10 makes no sense. For one thing, the question ends with "...or not be adopted?" and answer #4 is simply "Adoption". That`s not an answer.

    I missed the alphabet and the pilot.

    TheSharpest: There`s no "or" in that sentence, so the children can be born in the same day but different months, same month but different year and so on.

    To be honest, when I think about number 10 now I think it`s a crap question. I knew that the answer was that these kids may have more siblings and as a result be triplets or quadruplets or whatever, but when you get just two of these triplets side by side they`d also be twins, although maybe in a different sense of the word. Of course if you just apply some sense then it`s quite clear which answer they want.

    And I reckon that the blind man may have walked into the wrong shop to buy shoes. And technically question 8 should have quotation marks around "the alphabet" or put it in italics for the answer they want to be right. 6 Also annoyed me a bit because "Li" and "Lee" are pronounced the same way in Chinese.

    Looks like it is indeed a stupid test after all.

    free candy - you were almost right with E in "alphabet", but they wanted H in "the alpHabet".

    Sharpest - they could be two of three triplets.

    miss weasley - the first sentence is "YOU are the pilot..."

    Sentinel - imagine a hole the shape of a cuboid. Its dimensions could be 2 feet width, 3 feet length, 1 foot height. (but of course there would be no dirt in the hole, so the answer is 0)

    "What is the 7th letter in the alphabet?"
    It said that the answer is H but that it wrong. It would be H if the question was "What is the 7th letter in `the alphabet`?"


    And can someone explain this one to me?:
    "Two U.S. coins are worth a total of 30cents, and one of them is not a nickel what are the coins?"

    It said that one of them is NOT a nickel, so how is the answer "Nickel and a Quarter"? :S

    the way the first one is phrased suggests that the alphabet is the words you are supposed to use. otherwise they would have written "the 7th letter in alphabet." and one of them isn`t a nickel, it is a quarter, the other one is a nickel.

    ---the way the first one is phrased suggests that the alphabet is the words you are supposed to use. otherwise they would have written "the 7th letter in alphabet." ---

    Negative. In order to suggest that we should use the words "the alphabet", those words needs to be in quotes, as in this sentence. As written, the question asks us to count through the alphabet (a=1, b=2, c=3, d=4, e=5, f=6, g=7). The correct answer is `g`. The question is flawed, and thus the test is wrong.

    That being said, when I read it, I wanted to answer "Impossible to know without you telling me which alphabet."

    Question 2: As logic would dictate you need to compleet the list, there is no way to know if he means a house or a actual greenhouse.
    Question 8: There are no "" so the question is in the alphabet and not the word "The alphabet".
    Question 11: I`m not a American, i don`t know how much a nickel is or a dime. And i don`t want to look it up. Not really universal is it, what a jackass.

    Calm down, there, darkhawk.

    2. there`s no need for logic. If the creator said a "green house", then yeah, you`d have a point. But "greenhouse" as a compound word specifically means a greenhouse. The fact that it`s made of glass is iffy (I have a plastic greenhouse), but whatever.

    8. You have a point there, but quotes would have given it away. Don`t cry just because you got something wrong.

    for those who dont understand:

    1. if the vice president dies, the president is still alive
    2. according to the question a green house has green bricks, but a greenhouse is made of glass
    3. if john digs a hole, theres no dirt in it
    4. if you take away 3 apples, then you have 3 apples, you dont lose 3 because you never had 10 to start with, someone elses did and ur being a jackass
    5. if it says "you`re the pilot" and then it asks what the pilots name is, its YOUR name, cuz youre the pilot
    6. it lee`s dad, so lee is the fifth child
    7. you dont bury survivors
    8. its the 7th letter of the next phrase; the alphabet t=1 h=2 e=3 a=4 l=5 p=6 h=7 a=8 b=9 e=10 t=11
    9. a blind man can still talk, so he just says that he wants some shoes
    10. idk what the real answer to this one is cuz its none of the above, so the answer isnt listed, but apparently there is an answer
    11. one`s not a nickel, its a quarter, and the other one is a nickel

    I`m not really bothering to read the comments, but the only answer that I disagree with was 8, because in order for that technicality to work it needs to be said out loud, otherwise it needs to be:
    "what is the 7th letter in `the alphabet`?"
    You can`t speak quotation marks, that`s why it works when you`re talking. Anyway I knew that they would have h as the correct answer but I choose g anyway just to be stubborn. I also don`t know how 10 was possible, but whatever, there could be a way, I guess.

    i heard them so many times yet they were wrong like A plane crashes on the border of Canada and America, where do you bury the survivors?
    i said In the ground and he said none of the above thats retard lol wasted my time

    You can`t bury survivors, hated. That would be considered murder.

    Wow, it`s quite clear that no one reads the previous comments. Stop explaining number 10, people! Let others go read the past comments like they should.

    I don`t know why everyone has such a problem with this. When it`s this obvious that the guy is trying to catch you out on every single question (using classic riddles which most people know), then it`s not hard. Just go for the non-obvious answer. Take the one with the twins - he wouldn`t ask if it weren`t possible. And if after a load of stupid questions you get a seemingly sensible one about the alphabet, and give the answer "G", maybe you should have thought twice.

    If I knew what a nickel was I would`ve been there with 100%. If it`d been `I`ve got 2 notes that make up a pony and one of the notes isn`t a score` I would`ve known it was a lady and a score. (cockney slang - £25 = pony, £20 = score and £5 = lady).

    I scored myself at 100% but the test said 80. The were wrong with the alphabet one, which has been pointed out. Also the answer to #5 is impossible, since i`ve never been on a plane (but i don`t know how they would`ve known that.

    As far as #10, because of the "or" the question is asking... "Is it possible for two kids to be born on the same hour,day,month,year, and have the same parents, and not be twins" OR "Is it possible for two kids to not be adopted?"

    Since it`s possible for two kids to not be adopted the statement is true, so the answer to the question is `yes.`

    I have always disagreed with the airplane scenario. The question is where would you bury the survivors? The one true answer is when the survivors of the crash go on to live their lives and then die later of whatever kills them they would be very where ever there we`ll are family wishes them to be. So yes you would bury the survivors eventually. Life is 100% terminal.

    > And if after a load of stupid questions you get a seemingly sensible one about the alphabet, and give the answer "G", maybe you should have thought twice.

    This is the smartest thing said in the comments so far.

    Seriously, with number 8- if they put it in quotes, it would have been painfully obvious. And it couldn`t have been the "e" at all- it`s the seventh letter in <whatever phrase follows the word in, in it`s entirety>. If you were to pick the seventh letter in the word "alphabet" itself, it would have had to have said "7th letter in alphabet" or "7th letter in the word alphabet". And even then, that could be a trick, and the 7th letter would be D.

    Bottom line, it`s not "e" because "the alphabet" directly followed "in", and it`s not "g" because 1) putting it quotes would have ruined the trick, and 2) Common Sense- with 10 other trick ones, why go with the obvious answer? It`

    I got four questions wrong.

    1- Chicago to New York with a Quick Stop over at miami?

    Hello?

    Impossible as per what is said in the question.

    - And I /am/ a Pilot, I speak as an authority on that one..

    2- Lee`s Father - yeah I walked right into that one, teaches me to read the question.

    3- What is the 7th letter in the alphabet? A1 C2 C3 D4 E5 F6 G7 - H? Why H? Thats the 8th letter. - OH I see. You`re an idiot. Not I. - Can`t be placed at fault if you deliberately write something to make people misunderstand. This does not make you smart - It makes you a moron striving for attention.

    4- One of them is Not a Nickel? It`s impossible. Plain and simple. "One is a Quarter the /Other/ is a Nickel? See #3. And even there, the way you wrote the answers, it`s still wrong.

    You Lose.

    Good Day Sir.

    #5 starts out saying "You`re the pilot of an airplane..." It`s pretty sad if you don`t know you`re own name.

    and I just picked nickel & quarter for #11 and it said I was right. go figure.

    it`s not that big a deal It`s just a fun, tricky test.

    The alphabet one was worded particularly badly with a terrible use of grammar. I know it`s meant to be a riddle but they still needed to clarify `the alphabet` otherwise it`s anyone`s guess. They even could have got away with wording it "What is the 7th letter in alphabet" and had the answer be E.

    Also I still don`t get the question about the kids having the same parents. I can see how they may share the same parent but surely not parents. Also I take it not being twins also includes Siamese.

    I think it`s funny I missed obvious questions, not making excuses for it. But I would like an explanation for this one:

    Two U.S. coins are worth a total of 30cents, and one of them is not a nickel what are the coins?

    Your Answer: Impossible
    Correct Answer: Nickel and a Quarter

    Am I just imagining that it says ONE IS NOT A NICKEL?

    Also, what is the logic behind the blind man question?

    ~*xox*~

    The correct answer is actually a nickel and a quarter. First of all: it asks you how you can get 30 cents with only 2 coins. This rules out "3 dimes is a correct answer". Second, it says that only one of the coins is not a nickel - doesn`t mean the other coin isn`t.

    The blind man question - this question is trying to trick you. The first man that walked in is mute so he has to signal what he wants. The next man is blind, but isn`t mute, so he can say exactly what he`s looking for.

    alright ,, there`s two mistakes

    the letter of the alphabet question should be

    "the alphabet" in quotation marks,,, that way you are actually counting the seventh letter of the words in quatations instead of asking a straight up question.
    That`s why he has the answer as H. He just forgot the quotation marks. lol nice.
