In light of all these logic thingies, I feel the need for an idiot test:

I'm not as stupid as I thought ;). The answer to the pill one doesnt make sense, though.

i got the 28 day and sheep question wrong. i wasn't thinking total days and i thought the sheep farmer was a trick like the bear question.

Think of it as fence posts, 3 fence post have 2 spaces between them, so that's 2 half hours.

Managed 8 correct.

I got a 9, but I've taken a similar test before so the results probably are not accurate.

Damn you Moses and your ark! :)

the apple one- i misread it
and the pill one makes absolutely no sense...

I only got 5 right.

You take the first pill when the doctor gives it to you.
You take the second pill 30 minutes later.
You take the third pill 30 minutes after that.
3 pills...one hour.

You take the first pill when the doctor gives it to you.
You take the second pill 30 minutes later.
You take the third pill 30 minutes after that.
3 pills...one hour. No. When the question says:
A doctor gives you three pills telling you to take one every half hour.If you take a pill every half hour, one would deduce that one(1) pill lasts thirty(30) minutes.
Now for the rest of the question.
How long would the pills last?One could agrue that the pills would last thirty(30) minutes beacuse that is how often you have to take them.
The correct way to state the question they are asking is:
How long would these three pills last?This is the only way it really is clear.
Now, with our previous deductions that one(1) pill lasts thirty(30) minutes, we could then, by simple matimatics, ascertain the answer.
Words on top, numbers on bottom:
one pill + one pill + one pill = 3 pills
30 min. + 30 min. + 30 min. = 90 min.

If:
60 min. = 1 hour
30 min. = 1/2 hour

Then:

90 min. = 1 & 1/2 hours

Giving us the final answer of 1 & 1/2 hours which, I bet, the 74.6% of us that got the question wrong, had.

The question was "How long will the pills last?" not "How long will the effect the pills have on you last?" ;)

Forgot to copy and paste my results. I only got 7 right dammit. I've got dead men marrying people. :D

take 1 pill. 30 minutes later, take 1 pill. 30 minutes later, take 1 pill.

total pills taken = 3
total time taken = 60 minutes (1 hour)

I got 6 right.

Actually, that test is just a matter of perspective.
There is no right answer to most of those questions.
Okay, to the purely mathematical, but the others? Blah.

yup, that's how it was asked.

i got 8 (above the average, apparently...), including that'un.

and i maintain that these tests shouldn't test on the bloody bible (got the moses/ark one wrong- that was below the belt).
