How to score the mini-quiz

3. Oversight.

4. 4mph. The first three miles take an hour; the second three miles take half an hour. She spends one and a half hours running six miles.

Scoring

Count the number of correct answers.

9-10: Good Mensa material. Try to join.

7-8: You may not be as smart as the guy who wrote the test, but there's a good chance you could infiltrate Mensa anyway.

5-6: A reasonable try; if you learned a thing or two from Dennis Miller's Monday Night Football commentary, you might squeak into Mensa.

Below 5: Maybe you should join a bowling league.
