Default Silly question outta boredom

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

2. If a doctor gives you three 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 8 'clock in the evening and wound up my clock and set the alarm to sound at nine 9 'clock in the morning. How many hours of sleep would I get before being awoken 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?

7. A man builds a house with 4 sides of rectangular construction, each side having a southern exposure. A big bear comes along, what color is the bear?

8. Take 2 apples from 3 apples. What do you have?

9. How many animals of each species did Moses take with him in the Ark?

10. If you drove a bus with 43 people on board from Chicago and stopped at Pittsburgh to pick up 7 more people and drop off 5 passengers and at Cleveland to drop off 8 passengers and pick up 4 more and eventually arrive at Philadelphia 20 hours later, What's the name of the driver?



sorry people, a bit bored!

Question: How many legs are present in the bus?

The question is "How many legs?", not "How many paws?"

My answer = 16 (girls legs plus the bus driver)

too right. but already seen where I went wrong.

I once applied for a job with a very large company in my industry. They advertised for someone with at least 5 years experience in the job. When I applied they asked me to travel to London (from France) to take one of those type of tests. Told them politely to get stuffed.
