Intelligence test

There are only questions, so you should be able to answer them all in 5
minutes. DO NOT look at the answers found at the end of this document, that
would be cheating!  Write each of your answers down, it makes a difference!


1. Some months have 30 days, some months have 31 days.  How many months
have 28 days?

2. If a doctor gives you 3 pills and tells you to take one pill every half
hour, how long would it be before all the pills had been taken?

3. I went to bed at eight o'clock in the evening and wound up my clock and
set the alarm to sound at nine o'clock in the morning. How many hours sleep
would I get before being woken by the alarm?

4. Divide 30 by half and add ten.  What do you get?

5. A farmer had 17 sheep. All but 9 died. How many live sheep were left?

6. If you had only one match and entered a COLD and DARK room, where there
was an oil heater, an oil lamp and a candle, which would you light first?
