Fun IQ Questions?

Received these from my friend Judy R. Answers at the bottom, but please try to honestly answer these before going there.

1) How many animals of each sex did Moses take on the ark?

2) How many birthdays does the average man have?

3) Some months have 31 days; how many have 28?

4) Is it legal for a man in California to marry his widow's sister? Why?

5) What was the President's name in 1950?

6) I have two U.S. coins totaling 55 cents. One is not a nickel. What are the coins?

7) How far can a dog run into the woods?

8) A clerk in the butcher shop is 5' 10'' tall. What does he weigh?

9) How many two-cent stamps are there in a dozen?

10) Why can't a man living in the USA be buried in Canada?


1) None--Noah had the ark, not Moses. 2) One. 3) All of them. 4) No, because he is dead. 5) Same as it is now. 6) 50-cent piece and a nickel (one is a nickel; the other is not). 7) Half way. 8) Meat. 9) 12. 10) He can't be buried if he isn't dead.

So, how many did you get right or get wrong? Let me know in the comments.

I actually did pretty well; number 5 was the only one that tripped me up.

There's a variant on number 10 that goes something like "A plane crashed on the border of Colorado and Utah. Where did they bury the survivors?"
