In these troubled times, the one thing we can draw strength from is we’re all in this together. And we are. And I can prove it. Here is a very simple test. It has only 4 questions. However, over 90% of ordinary people do not answer even one of the questions correctly! Take the test. (Don’t cheat by scrolling to the answers or consulting Google.) If you answer even one of the questions correctly, your problem-solving skills are better than the vast majority of people on this planet. Be careful, and good luck! (At the end, I’ll tell you which segment of the population consistently gets the highest scores on this test.)
Question 1 — How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator door. Put in the giraffe. Close the door.
If you did not answer this question correctly, it shows that you do not possess simple problem-solving skills.
Question 2 – How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
If your answer was “Open the refrigerator door. Put in the elephant. Close the door,” you are wrong. You have missed a vital piece of information.
The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator door. Remove the giraffe. Put in the elephant. Close the door.
If you did not answer this question correctly, it shows that you do not possess complex problem-solving skills.
Question 3 – The Lion King is hosting an animal conference, and all the animals attend — except one. Which animal does not attend the Lion King’s conference?
The correct answer is: The elephant who is still in the refrigerator.
If you did not answer this question correctly, it shows that you have difficulty accessing your short-term memory.
Question 4 – You are travelling to see the animals at the Lion King’s conference. You come to a world-famous, crocodile-infested river. There is no bridge, and you have no boat. How do you cross the river?
If your answer is: I go to the refrigerator, opens the door remove the elephant and ride him across the river, you are wrong. You cannot ride a wild elephant.
The correct answer is: I jump in the river and swim safely across because all the crocodiles are attending the Lion King’s conference.
If you did not answer this question correctly, it shows that you think you have problem-solving skills, but, unfortunately, you do not review the facts, forget important information and are easily sidetracked by over-complicating your problems.
And who gets the highest scores on this test? The vast majority are children under 8 years old.
Time to remember your inner child!

I got 75%. I’m not sure how I should feel about that…
And just how old are you sir? Thanks for dropping by. cheers
I flunked fro the start – because I would never put a live animal in a refrigerator.
This quiz uses stuffed animals only. No animals were harmed during this quiz. cheers
Ah, jeez, that would have changed all my answers 🙂
Nobody can refuse a stuffed animal
Well, dammit. Here it is inspired by me and I didn’t get them right! Though it proves what you said, you have a childish nature. 😀
Thanks for the brain teaser, WD. I struck out. All my answers involved butchering the animals. I must be worried about how barren my fridge is right now.
Step away from the giraffe!
