8.Tilt your head over to one shoulder. Which shoulder does it touch? Now cup your ear as if listning to hear someone from a distance, which ear do you cup ?
9.Fixate a small distance object with your eyes and point directly at it with your forefingure. Now close one eye. Now change eyes. Which eyes was open when the fingertip remained in line with the small object ?
