I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter and I've got a fun day ahead of you-- five,
count them, five little brainteasers.. Nothing particularly hard but it's just
designed to get your juices going, okay?. So, hedge funds ask brainteasers because
they think it's a way of separating the wheat from the chaff.
These are pretty easy and as time progresses, I'll elevate them
So, here's the first one. Is it possible for a man in California.
to marry his widow's sister? Let me repeat is it possible for
a man in California to marry his widow's sister? The answer
is, "No." He's dead! Remember, it's his widow's
sister. Okay? So that's number one. Number two
A farmer has 17 sheep and all but nine die. How many are left?
Easy. Nine. I told you these weren't hard How many two
cent . . . let me try that again. How many two cent
stamps are there in a dozen? Do. I have to answer that one? Twelve.
If a doctor gives you three pills, telling you to take one
every half hour, how many minutes will pass from taking the first pill
to the last pill? That one's a little deceptive but the answer is an
hour because you take one now take one in 30
minutes. Take one at the end of an hour.. Okay? Last question and this one was a
fun one. Two US coins add up to 30 cents.
If one of them is not a nickel, what are the two coins?
The answer is a quarter and a nickel. and I know when I thought about it for a
second, i said they couldn't be doing this one
and the answer is. Yes, if one of them isn't a nickel
that means the other one can be a nickel.. This one could be a quarter.

that you can get answers. If you go to
