Question: You have a horrible disease but thankfully there is a medicine for it. Everyday you must take one pill called Batz and one pill called Scatz. On the very first day, you pour one Batz in your hand then you pour two Scatz in your hand by accident! These pills are identical and if you take too much or too little of either pill on any day you will die. You cannot get a refill or throw any pills away.
How can you still take the pills you have in your hand and live?
Answer: To do this you just have to get another Batz and cut all four pills in half taking a half from each pill. Do the same the next day and you will definitely get the right amount of each pill for the two days.

Did you say, "Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator"? Wrong Answer. Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions. 3. The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. This tests your memory. 4. You just jump into the water and swim across to the mainland. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes
