Interesting that you have incorrect answers as the correct ones in your quiz:

You're 3rd place right now in a race. What place are you in when you pass the person in 2nd place?  1st place is incorrect.

When you pass the person in 2nd place in a race, you become the 2nd in the race. You have not passed the 1st place one, so you can not become the 1st in the race.

If a is equal to b, then is not a equal to not b?  Yes is incorrect.

a = b with numbers 1 = 1

on one hand, not a (1) could be 2 and not b (1) could be 4 so the answer could be NO

on the other hand, not a (1) could be 3 and not b (1) could be 3, in which case the answer could be YES

So looking at the big picture, the correct andwer is:

Depends on variables.

 

If you know better, please explain!

While I agree on your assessment of the race question, your assessment of the question dealing with variables could use a little refinement.  Most importantly, one must define the domain.  If a and b are sets, then a = b implies ~a = ~b.  For numbers, though, ~a is not a determined value, as you point out.  Likewise, for boolean values, a = b implies ~a = ~b.  So the most correct answer would be "It depends on the domain from which the values for a and b are to be drawn."

I totally agree with you on the race question!  The person would be in second place not first!

I agree on your assesment. Poo that to people who don't think hard enough before making these. Good questions though.

hahahahahahhaha.... that's why it is a test post! [grinning] thank you for dropping by LDC

o_O

2 correct.

i got 2 right...FML!!! lol.

WTF? i only got 2 rite

i deff bullshitted this haha

Ummmm.....woudlm't you be in 2nd if you past second place?!?!?!??!!?

LMAO, i tottaly suck at trick questions. Dx

But it was kinda fun! :P

Clever, but inaccurate. Nice try.

#2 if you are in 3rd and pass 2nd you still have to pass the first person to be first.

#3 just because no one are not there to hear it does not mean it does not make a sound.....

#4 stated unclearly   If a is equal to b, then is not a equal to not b? if(not)a seems to mean a is no longer a. (not) b same here....

Clearly would have been: then is not a equal to b which really is silly because you are asking the same thing...IMO it should have been: than is b equal to a....

lol!just q1 was true

 

that doenst make sense if ur in third and you pass the 2nd person u r now in 2. correct it. now

if your in 3rd place and you pass the person in 2nd place (the person in front of you) then you are now in 2nd place and they are now in 3rd, you never passed the first place person.

I got 4/5 correct. The leaf falling one I got 'wrong'. I picked "No" it does not make a sound of no one hears it. However, isn't the correct answer the same as the one I chose? The 'correct' answer was 'How would I know if I wasn't there to hear it?" That is the same thing. I wasn't there, nor was anyone else so, no it did not make a noise. Also, I saw some confusion over the "a=b" question. I think what was meant is a=b, not a= not b" I believe the creator meant the word usage literally.

This is really a set of tricky question. Nice job there Rica! <a href="https://www.facebook.com/MarlaAhlgrimm">Marla Ahlgrimm</a>
