another bloody IQ test

Oh look another bloody IQ test.

I got all three right and it took about two minutes, if that, does that make me a genius?

Quote:
 1. A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs$1.00 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost? 2. If it takes five machines five minutes to make five widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets? 3. In a lake, there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, the patch doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of the lake?
Or is the rest of the world a lot more stupid than I thought. I don't think of myself as exceptional, maybe that's my mistake.

It seems it was originally printed in the UK's The Sun newspaper. Think of the target readership.

Tests for a certain type of thinking.

Try this one... You are dropped in the middle of Australia. You have shoes, clothes, and a single blade pen-knife. Your time starts now.

I'd get rid of the pen-knife, as some copper is bound to arrest me for having it on my person.

However surely that would be the quickest way to get yanked back to the nearest large population centre?

That reminds me of the joke about the boy scout saying that survive in a desert he'd want a deck of cards. The rationale being that he'd sit down and start playing Solitaire. As soon as you do that, someone would walk up behind him and tell him to "put the red 9 on the black 10".
