Without taking an IQ test, simply answer these 3 questions to a feel for your IQ:

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 5 machines 5 minutes to make 5 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?

Are you ready for the answers?

Let’s Go!





2)5 mins

3)47 days

Tricky huh?

It’s not surprising then that only 48 percent of MIT students were able to answer all three questions correctly.

This should give you a somewhat accurate estimate of your intelligence level, since the test has been found to have a substantial correlation with cognitive ability and is potent predictor of performance on a wide sample of tasks.

I have done a iq test some years back, and turns out, I have a high average to superior intellect. I got 2 questions correct.

So now you can roughly gauge your own intelligence level
