Compilation of SMS

Hi Guys,

Of late, I received some wonderful messages in my phone and thought of sharing with you.

Most Stupid Questions people ask in different places and funny replies

1. At movies: hey, what r u doing here?
Ans: Don't u know? I sell tickets in black over here.
2. In Bus: A heavy lady wearing pointed high healed shoes steps on ur feet: sorry, did it hurt?
Ans: No, not at all. I'm a local anaesthesia. Why don't u try again?
2. When u get woken up at midnight by a phone call: Sorry! were u sleepin?
Ans: no! I was doin resarch on whether zulu tribes in africa marry or not?

Was it a car or a cat I saw

3 Nice Short Stories

1. Once, all villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all people gathered and only one boy, came with umbrella. THATS FAITH.

Math Puzzle

A box containing Rs. 180 consists of Rs. 1, 50 paise and 25 paise coins in the propotion of 2:3:4. Whats is the number of 50 paise coins? (answer below)


 Logical Reasoning
The logic is that you have to multiply 1st two digists for 1st two digits of answer. Then multiply 1st and 3rd digit for 2nd set of two digits of answer. Then comes the critical part. You have to add 1st and 3rd digit and then multiply with the 2nd digit and then rverse it for the last two digits of answer.
Answer is 143542

Math Puzzle
I'm not sure whether the propotion means the amount or the number of coins. Either case the answer is that there are 120 fifty paise coins.

Happy Reading!!!

1. Thanks to all the people who sent the above messgaes.
2. I may be awrong about the answers as I solved myself and didn't check. If you find it wrong, give the correct answer with reason.


  1. Your answers were correct.
    For reasoning i could solve only 66 percent last two digits i have to see ur answer while math one was simple.
    But very good post shows your versatility.

  2. @Abhishek
    thanks... the first 66% is easy... the last two digits logic r completely different... i had to sit down and scribble for 10 minutes to find the answer...

  3. Zulu tribe is very funny !!
