See if you have what it takes to be considered "smart."
Your replies must be spontaneous and immediate, with no

second place. In which position are you now?
Answer: If you answered that you're now in first, you're
wrong! You overtook the second runner and took his place,
therefore you are now in second place.

Try again with good calculator.
Today is clearly not your day, although you should manage to
get the last question right...

It's obviously Marie!
Read the question properly.
You are clearly the weakest link.
Now challenge your friends!
