1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator? Does not sound like a worthwhile project.
2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator? Why would you...again not a worthwhile project.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend... except one. Which animal does not attend? Human

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it? Check the direction of the wind and make sure you cross upwind so they don't smell you and swim very fast but do not make too many waves...

WILL BE INTERESTING to see what ur answers are to this and compare to mine. I'll post mine now.
Don't know what the result will be, but I am a professional manager so I am curious!

UNTIL you have answered the question!

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator? First, you need to find a really tall fridge. Then, you open the door and put the giraffe in.

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator? Is it the same fridge? The elephant won't fit because the fridge is giraffe sized and already has a giraffe in it. If not, then you get an elephant-sized fridge.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend... except one. Which animal does not attend? Well, probably the giraffe since he's in the fridge. But if we have two fridges, then the elephant is also in there...hmmm...I guess then it would be the human.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it? If these qustions are simultaneous, then it doesn't matter because the crocodiles are at the meeting, so you just swim across real fast before they get back. If not, then you make real good friends with a crocodile and have him ferry you across.

WILL BE INTERESTING to see what ur answers are to this and compare to mine. I'll post mine now.
there you go.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend... except one. Which animal does not attend? The Lion Queen - someone has to watch the kids during the conference!

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it? Hire a large fortune 500 consultant firm to do it for you (names with-held on purpose).

Here's the answers!!!!! Tell me what u think!

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, And close the refrigerator?

Wrong Answer.

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend... except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. This tests our memory. Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still Have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting.

This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes. According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of The professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.

Hope u enjoyed this!
