1. Mr. Black, Mr. Gray, and Mr. White are fighting in a truel. They each get a gun and take turns shooting at each other until only one person is left. Mr. Black, who hits his shot 1/3 of the time, gets to shoot first. Mr. Gray, who hits his shot 2/3 of the time, gets to shoot next, assuming he is still alive. Mr. White, who hits his shot all the time, shoots next, assuming he is also alive. The cycle repeats. If you are Mr. Black, where should you shoot first for the highest chance of survival?
Dan Manly was revisiting his home town when an old friend called. "Hey, Dan, how have you been? It must be 15 years since we last saw each other. " "At least that," replied Dan. "I've been keeping well, but tell me about yourself." Dan's friend answered, "I'm married now but to someone that you wouldn't know. By the way, this is my daughter." Dan looked down at the little girl and asked her name. "It's the same as my mother's," the little girl replied. "Then I bet your name is Susan," said Dan. How could he know?

Good luck!

1.Firefox.The animal is also called Lesser Panda. Just like the Giant Panda, it is specialized in eating bamboo. The scientific name of the Firefox, Ailurus fulgens, means 'shining cat'. The animal was called Firefox because of its resemblance to a fox, and its orange-brownish coloration.
2.Bengal tiger.The Bengal tiger is also called Royal Bengal tiger. It is considered the second largest tiger subspecies after the Siberian tiger. It populates mainly India and Bangladesh. Unlike lions, which live in groups called prides, tigers are solitary animals and the male does not take part in raising the young.
3.Poisonous snakes.The Big Four includes the Indian cobra, the Common krait, the Russell's viper and the Saw-scaled viper. These snakes are considered the most dangerous in South Asia as they have caused more deaths than any other snake species. The king cobra is another extremely venomous snake from the region.
4.It has a dark "cap" on its head.The Nicobar Bulbul is a dark green songbird, with yellow on its throat and underside. It has a specific, chattering call, similar to that of the Black Bulbul. It lives only on the Nicobar Islands.
5.Insects.The Indian Pangolin is able to curl itself into a ball when it feels threatened. It also has protective scales on its body. It eats ants and termites, which it digs out of their mounds.
6.Fear.The Bonnet Macaque has a large range of gestures. One of the most interesting sounds it produces is the 'lip smacking'. Its name comes from the hair on its head which is shaped like a bonnet.
7.All of these.The Indian Elephant has a larger trunk, broader skull, smaller ears and a smaller abdomen than the African Elephant. Females have no tusks and are smaller. They are nomadic animals, moving from one place to another within a few days.
8.With its tail resting on its head.
The Madras Treeshrew populates the hill forests of central and southern India. It is most often seen on the ground, searching for insects and seeds to feed on. It marks its territory with the scent glands on its throat.
9.Bat.The Indian Flying-fox is a very large bat species. Its wing span is between 4 and 5 feet (1.2 and 1.5 meters). Being a nocturnal animal, its diet consists of fruits such as mangoes and bananas. It sometimes forms colonies of hundreds of individuals.
10.Sloth.This is the reason why the animal is also called Sloth Bear. It has long brown to black fur, a long snout with bare lips. The bear does not have upper incisor as its diet consists mainly of insects. It is an omnivorous animal which also feeds on tubers, fruits, grains, honey, eggs, birds, flowers, and meat.
