Good luck!

1. If a doctor gave you three pills and told you to take one every half hour, how long would they last?
Spoiler:
One hour. One to start, one after half an hour and one after one hour


2. Divide 30 by half. Add 10. What is the answer?
Spoiler:
30 has 60 halfs + 10 = 70


3. If you only had one match and entered a dark room where there was an oil lamp, an oil heater and some kindling wood, which would you light first?
Spoiler:
The match


4. Take two apples from three apples. What do you have?
Spoiler:
You would now have the two that you took


5. Some months have 30 days, some have 31. How many have 28?
Spoiler:
All have ay least 28


6. Imagine you built a house with four sides, and each wall had a southern exposure. If a bear went past one of the windows, what colour would the bear be?
Spoiler:
White, since you would be at the north pole


7. How many animals of each species did Moses take on the Ark?
Spoiler:
None, it was Noah's Ark


8. If you went to bed at eight o’clock in the evening, wound up the alarm clock and set it to get up at nine o’clock the following morning, how many hours sleep would you get?
Spoiler:
Only one hour because a 12 hour clock can't tell the difference between night and day!

Youre supposed to try it yourself Polly and only then look at the answers. I only needed to look up one answer myself :mrgreen: This is pretty much the same as the "intelligence test" we had before which I had to delete because the site it linked to was so unreliable.
