Try answering the questions before you take a look at the
answers. :rtfr
Questions asked by P&G while recruiting at IIM-B.

1. There is one word in the English language that is always
incorrectly. What is it?

2. A man gave one son 10 cents and another son was given 15
cents. What time
is it?

3. A boat has a ladder that has six rungs, each rung is one
foot apart. The
bottom rung is one foot from he water. The tide rise! ! s at
12 inches every
15 minutes. High tide peaks in one hour. When the tide is
at it's highest,
how many rungs are under water?

4. There is a house with four walls. Each wall faces south.
There is a
window in each wall. A bear walks by one of the windows. What
color is the

5. Is half of two plus two equal to two or three?

6. There is a room.! The shutters are blowing in. There is
broken glass on
the floor. There is water on the floor. You find Sloppy dead
on the floor.
Who is Sloppy? How did Sloppy die?

7. How much dirt would be in a hole 6 feet deep and 6 feet wide
that has
been dug with a square edged shovel?

8. If I were in Hawaii and dropped a bowling ball in a bucket
of water which
is 45! degrees F, and dropped another ball of the same weight,
mass, and
size in a bucket at 30 degrees F, both of them at the same time,
which ball
would hit the bottom of the bucket first? Same question,
but the location is
in Canada?

9. What is the significance of the following: The year is
1978, thirty-four
minutes past noon! on May 6th.

10. If a farmer has 5 haystacks in one field and 4 haystacks
in the other
field, how many haystacks would he have if he combined them
all in the
center field?

11. What is it that goes up and goes down but does not move?

Scroll down for answers............ :think


1. The word "incorrectly."

2. 1:45. The man gave away a total of 25 cents. He divided
it between two
people. Therefore, he gave a quarter to two.

3. None, the boat rises with the tide. Googly ;-)

4. White. If all the walls face south, the house is at the
North pole, and
the bear, therefore, is a polar bear.

5. Three. Well, it seems that it could almost be either,
but if you follow
the mathematical orders of operation, division is performed
before addition.
So... half of two is one. Then add two, and the answer is three.

6. Sloppy is a (gold)fish. The wind blew the shutters in,
which knocked his
goldfish-bowl off the table, and it broke, killing him.

7. None. No matter how big a hole is, it's still a hole:
the absence of dirt

8. Both questions, same answer: the ball in the bucket of
45 degree F water
hits the bottom of the bucket last. Did you think that the
water in
the 30 degree F bucket is frozen? Think again.The question
said nothing
about that bucket having anything in it. Therefore, there
is no water(or
ice) to slow the ball down...

9. The time and month/date/year American style calendar
are 12:34, 5/6/78.

10. One. If he combines all of his haystacks, they all become
one big stack.

11. The temperature.
