  1. The second question's answer is actually incorrect. If you overtake the person in last place, and you assume that the story is playing fair, then the only way that's possible is if you were in first place and are so far ahead that you lapped the last place person.

  2. You are right Scott. This is fun puzzle. Nice thinking that if you overtake last person, you are coming first.

  3. If you overtake the last person, you need not be first. You could be second or third too. If you are second, it implies that the first person has already lapped the last person.

    So, I believe there are multiple solutions to this.

  4. Agree with you Rohan that there are multiple solutions.

    Lets assume that the person is running a 100 meters race for second question, so that concept of laps does not comes into picture. First puzzle was to set one's mind and when one reads second question he/she tried to answer it immediately without thinking that the question is wrong.

  5. There cant be many last ones! When you are the last one, you cant overtake you.. Then to overtake you, some one else from out side the race must enter.

  6. It is really funny brain game.. better than negative games like star war etc.
