This short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether you are qualified to be a "professional Analyst."
Scroll down for each answer. The questions are NOT that difficult. But don't scroll down UNTIL you have answered the question!

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

simple things in an overly complicated way.

Did you say, "Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?" Wrong Answer.
Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe put in the elephant and close the door. This

Correct Answer: The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there. This tests your memory.
Okay even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is inhabited by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

Actually, the answer to #4 is:

You shouldn't be crossing the river right now. Since you are an animal, you should be at the Lion King's meeting.

I think the suggested answer for the second question ("Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe put in the elephant and close the door") is wrong since the question doesn't say the elephant must be the only animal in the refrigerator.  Yeah sure

What if the Lion King is holding his animal meeting in the refrigerator?  Nuts

Talk about OVERanalysis... I could point out alternatives to just about every one of the questions...

I've heared it before, but only remembered the answer to the two first questions.  Smile
