Yearly dementia test

Our Yearly Dementia Test -- only 4 questions:

It's that time of year for us to take our annual senior citizen test.
Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we
grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it,
you lose it! Below is a very private way to gauge how your memory
compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones
with memory problems may have difficulty. Take the test presented here to
determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't
see the answers until you've made your answer. OK, relax, clear your mind
and begin.










1. What do you put in a toaster?





















Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast' give up now and do something else…

Try not to hurt yourself.

If you said, bread, go to Question 2.











2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?





















Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question.

Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat.

Content yourself with reading more appropriate literature such as Auto World.

However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3.















3. If a red house is made from red bricks and

a blue house is made from blue bricks and

a pink house is made from pink bricks and

a black house is made from black bricks,

what is a green house made from?















Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass.

If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading these???

If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4.





4. Without using a calculator -

You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales .

In London , 17 people get on the bus.

In Reading , 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on.

In Swindon , 2 people get off and 4 get on.

In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on.

In Swansea , 3 people get off and 5 people get on.

In Carmathen, 6 people get off and 3 get on.

You then arrive at Milford Haven...







Without scrolling back to review, how old is the bus driver?



















Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!

Don't you remember your own age...

It was YOU driving the bus! waveysmiley

marymary100 - 16-11-2012 at 06:58

I made it through to the end without making an error - I have seen it before mind you...







At least I remembered it though ;)

I didn't do very well the first time I did the test, but when I did it again I got all the answers correct. :)

Once again my GPO training did me proud.

Did you ever have to do those CBT compliance test things? You could do them as many times as it took to get them right. Total load of bo££ox


marymary100 - 16-11-2012 at 16:37

My friend tried to fail the compliance test but it wouldn't let him. It kept on changing the questions until there was only one option.


John_Little - 16-11-2012 at 18:30

Ve haff ways!


dr john - 16-11-2012 at 23:58

You are evil!



I've done this one several times and always get a couple wrong as well.
So obviously I'm just as bad as usual.

Except that I think I once got a perfect 4 correct.



If I only think I got all four correct does that mean... oh @%&$ it does doesn't it...


John_Little - 17-11-2012 at 08:57

Yes.
