Mind Games


Heres one for those who are in on a Sat night watching spin dryers and television.I am off out and will be back in the small hours.

Here are a few mental dexterity tests from MENSA.

1.REARRANGE THE FOLLOWING LETTERS TO GIVE THREE WORDS.EACH WORD MUST CONTAIN ALL SIX LETTERS.WHAT ARE THE WORDS?

A B E L R Y

2.IF BADGER=407265
RAGE=6137 and
BARD=6279

WHAT DOES GRAB= ?

3.REARRANGE EACH OF THE FOLLOWING GROUPS OF LETTERS TO FORM A WORD.THE SIX WORDS CAN THEN BE PLACED IN THREE PAIRS.WHAT ARE THEY?

WASPEDEY
LUCKCOSHETT
SHAQUS
CORMLEYOCT
CRETAK
TIMBONDAM

4.A LARGE SPIDER WALKS ACROSSA WINDOWSILL AT 24 INCHES PER HOUR.IT RETURNS OVER EXACTLY THE SAME DISTANCE AT 8 INCHES PER HOUR.WHAT IS THE SPIDERS AVERAGE SPEED OVER THE ENTIRE JOURNEY?

5REARRANGE THE LETTERS OF THE SENTANCE BELOW TO GIVE A WELL KNOWN PROVERB WITH A SIMILAR MEANING-

THIS IS MEANT AS AN INCENTIVE

WHATS THE PROVERB?


Hope that gives you something to think about.That last one is a bit dubious though.You might have to guess proverbs!

Enjoy

LOL... I'm with juju. I tried... my brain decided to go on vacation early and I came up with Zip! So here's a little riddle for you. You seem like a really smart guy who has a really sharp mind... so I think you'll get it right away. It took me hours!....

This is going to make you so MAD!
Think of words ending in -GRY.
Angry and hungry are two of them.
There are only three words in
the English language.
What is the third word?
The word is something that everyone uses every day.

If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.

Does that mean we shouldnt go onto the advanced tests.I was still warming up.lol

How about if I instigate a reward system for all correct answers?



For jayr I would like to admit an error on my part.Even I went crosseyed typing and the answer to Q1 should be :
Barley,Bleary and Barely.

So even cheating Cajun cant get 100 percent .lol that will teach him.

The other question is correct.I will explain on the next post.
