Are you the 2% or 98% of the population?

· Do the following exercise, guaranteed to raise an eyebrow.
· There's no trick or surprise.
· Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a time and as quickly as you can!

· Again, as quickly as you can but don't advance until you've done eac! h of them ... really.

· Now, scroll down (but not too fast, you might miss something.)

Think of a number from 1 to 10

Multiply that number by 9

If the number is a 2-digit number, add the digits together

Now subtract 5

Determine which letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number you ended up with

(example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c,etc.)

Think of a country that starts with that letter.

Remember the last letter of the name of that country.

Think of the name of an animal that starts with that letter.

Remember the last letter in the name of that animal.

Think of the name of a ! fruit that starts with that letter.

Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmark eating an Orange?

I told you this was FREAKY!! If not, you're among the 2% of the population whose minds are different enough to think of something else. ! 98% of people will answer with kangaroos in Denmark when given this exercise.

• Thanks x 1

edit: math

This is pretty dumb.. The entire math portion will always result in 4...

There are very few countries that start with the letter D but easily the most obvious is Denmark, and the rest works the exact same.

You're not part of the 2%, you're just bad at math.

That math will ALWAYS 100% result in 4.
