Here is proof that there should be people on this earth that make more money and have more stuff than other people.

 The folks who can answer these questions (or just one!) deserve to make more money and reap the benefits that God’s gift of intelligence provides them.

1. What’s the next number in this sequence: 10, 9, 60, 90, 70, 66 … ?

2. You’re in a car with a helium balloon on a string that is tied to the floor. The windows are closed. When you step on the gas pedal, what happens to the balloon—does it move forward, move backward, or stay put? 

3. Using only a four-minute hourglass and a seven-minute hourglass, measure exactly nine minutes—without the process taking longer than nine minutes.

4. A book has N pages, numbered the usual way, from 1 to N. The total number of digits in the page numbers is 1,095. How many pages does the book have? 

5. A man pushed his car to a hotel and lost his fortune. What happened?

These 5 questions were asked of job interviewees at Google. Google receives a million job applications a year. It’s estimated that only about 1 in 130 applications results in a job. By comparison, about 1 in 14 high-school students applying to Harvard gets accepted.

Answers are Here.
